The funniest show on TV... and you probably never heard of it!!
9 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this show three episodes into its first season and quickly became obsessed with it. Subversively funny stuff about 4 "regular" guys working in a manufacturing plant.

Created by one of the lead writers from the incomparable Strangers with Candy, this show weaves together all of the angst, paranoia, sexual tension and absurdity lying just below the surface of everyday life.

A mostly improvised program that works because the cast is truly gifted. The dialog sounds and feels natural and just enough off kilter to make it all work.

The cast features Mitch Rouse as "Gary." Rouse previously worked as a writer and occasional cast member of Strangers with Candy and is an alum /cast member on another Sedaris / Colbert / Dinello project, Exit 57.

Another cast member is David Pasquesi or Smitty. Pasquesi spent several episodes on SWC as Stew the meat obsessed boy friend of Sarah Blank. Jay Leggett as "Gus" and Michael Coleman as "Chase" round out a very talented cast. Both Leggett and Coleman and all the other regulars more than whole there own.

Please let Spike TV know that this show needs to be renewed and given a full season. Very, very funny.
