If you're familiar with 'Super Troopers' from the comedy troupe 'Broken Lizard,' you know Jay Chandrasekhar as the thick mustached cop 'Thorn.' But did you know that many of Broken Lizard's stories come from right here in Central New York?

In his new memoir 'Mustache Shenanigans: Making Super Troopers and Other Adventures in Comedy,' Chandrasekhar reflects on how he got to success in Hollywood, and how his time at Colgate University in Hamilton helped shape his comedy.

Syracuse.com has obtained excerpts from the book, where the writer/director talks about the party culture at Colgate and how he met the other members of Broken Lizard while at the school.

One story in the book talks about the famous 'liter of cola' scene in Super Troopers and how that was taken from an interaction at a Burger King in Hamilton, NY.

'Mustache Shenanigans: Making Super Troopers and Other Adventures in Comedy' is available at bookstores and amazon.com.
