"Porn" Is a Good Career Choice: Chicago's Chuckle Sandwich Makes Inroads in NYC

This very afternoon, in an editing suite on the 27th floor at Lexington and 51st in New York City, Chicago's own TJ Miller is reviewing some very bad porn.

No, we're not criticizing TJ's sexual proclivities; this is actually a new project that's being heavily shopped in NYC this week, in conjunction with the Del Close Improv Marathon, where Chicago sketch troupe Chuckle Sandwich (featuring TJ Miller, Thomas Middleditch, Mark Raterman, and Nick Vatterott) have secured the coveted 10:30 p.m. Saturday night slot.

To top things off, we heard that Thomas Middleditch received a call from Brillstein & Grey (production company behind Mr. Show, among others) just yesterday afternoon, offering him a deal after seeing him a few weeks ago at I.O.

The Chicago crew was also seen hobnobbing at Bungalow 8 Wednesday night, having a few drinks and chatting with several people including an Esquire and GQ writer, a prominent media mogul, and a columnist from the New York Post.

The Bastion has been promised a full report when TJ gets back to town next weekend; in the meantime, he can be seen all over NYC doing stand-up, and from what we know of TJ's schedule when he's home in Chicago, we're positive he'll be in at least five different places every night this coming week.
