Lloyd Kaufman is co-founder, with Yale friend Michael Herz, of the 41-year-old legendary Troma Entertainment, which is arguably the longest running independent movie studio in North America. He directed many of their feature films, including the world famous ‘The Toxic Avenger’, ‘Class of Nuke ‘Em High’, ‘Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD’, ‘Tromeo & Juliet’, and ‘Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead’.

Kaufman has written six books on filmmaking and has presented his “Make Your Own Damn Movie” master classes globally from Oxford University to Singapore. His latest film, ‘Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 1’, produced in association with STARZ, premiered in The Contenders series at New York’s Museum of Modern Art along with movies by the Coen Brothers, Martin Scorsese, and Woody Allen. Kaufman is currently editing ‘Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 2’ and preparing ‘The Toxic Avenger Part 5: Grime & Punishment’.

In 2008, ‘The Toxic Avenger’ was turned into a musical by Joe DiePietro and David Bryant of Bon Jovi, which ran in NYC for a year and won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical. ‘The Toxic Avenger’ Musical is currently available for licensing through Music Theatre International (MTI). To thank Troma fans for over 40 years of support, Kaufman and Michael Herz offer over 250 free feature length movies, cartoons, and new daily content on The Troma Movies YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/Tromamovies).
