Tonight at 9:30 PM, iO hosts a preview of Factory, a new comedy about "four disinterested small town factory workers who spend their time fraternizing while avoiding their drab work." The show premieres on Spike TV Sunday, 6/29, 10 PM.
The four leads, all Chicago-trained comedians and improvisers, are Mitch Rouse (who cowrote the Amy Sedaris vehicle Strangers With Candy), Michael Coleman, Jay Leggett, and Dave Pasquesi (half of TJ & Dave, the Reader's pick for best improv group in the current Best Of Chicago issue). They also write, produce, and direct the series.
Swag has been promised to the first 100 people in line.
