Older Brothers Of Former Democratic Lt. Gov. Nominee Scott Lee Cohen Star In TruTV's Hardcore Pawn: Chicago

"Welcome to Chicago's most outrageous family-owned pawn shop. Run by brothers Randy and Wayne, the odd couple is constantly at war with one another, their kids and their customers. The shop lies in a unique part of town with a local jail across the street and just blocks from Chicago's fashionable downtown. From bankers to gangbangers, on any given day, you never know whether a fight or a fortune is going to come through the door. Brimming with cash, gold, conflict and the most unusual objects ever seen, this is a family business where the tempers run high, but the money can pile higher."

You can see the promo here on the Royal Pawn website.


Among the goods: Old-school CPD riot gear.

"In addition to hard-luck stories," TimeOut Chicago notes, "the show features Randy's 26-year-old daughter, Elyse, and Wayne's 21-year-old son, Nate, who work as clerks at Royal Pawn," "Once the show comes out," Wayne says, turning away from the counter to rib Nate, "he just hopes he gets laid."
