Talk Show Host TROMAtized - Judyth Piazza chats with Lloyd Kaufman Troma Films

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Lloyd Kaufman is an iconoclastic American film director, producer, and documentarian. With Michael Herz (of Troma), he is the co-founder of Troma Entertainment. He is also the co-director, with Herz, of several of Troma`s feature films. His early Troma films are credited to Samuel Weil, a pseudonym (actually the name of Kaufman`s maternal grandfather) which Kaufman used to skirt Directors Guild of America rules.

Books written by Kaufman include All I Needed To Know About Filmmaking I Learned From The Toxic Avenger (with James Gunn), Make Your Own Damn Movie (with Adam Jahnke and Trent Haaga), and The Toxic Avenger: The Novel (with Adam Jahnke).

Born Stanley Lloyd Kaufman Jr., he pronounces his name KOFF-man.

Though born into a Jewish family, Kaufman was not raised in the faith, and now considers himself an atheist. He does follow some of the tenets of Taoism, however.
