Ever since he saw Jackie Chan's First Strike at the age of 7, Eli has been a huge fan of Chan. Seeking out every film of his, starting from his vast catalog in China and his American-made films as he became more of a domestic success, Eli is in awe of Chan's martial arts abilities as a performer, stunt choreographer, and director. All of Eli's favorite fights and films are covered as well as some fun facts about the Chinese opera school friends Chan has made the most movies with and his penchants for singing the theme songs to his movies and making blooper reels of outtakes and stunt failures. Celebrate someone Eli refers to as one of the greatest entertainers of all time with this conversation paired with a viewing of your biggest Jackie blind spot.
Check out Eli's work on fellow Chicago Podcast Cooperative show Improvised Star Trek.
