From the producers: Colin Quinn is back. And not a moment too soon. The satirical sage from Brooklyn returns with "Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State," where he lays bare the absurdities, hypocrisies and calamities on both sides of the political divide. This is no witch hunt: Colin is here to own the libs, the conservs and all of you in between.
Comedian, actor, and writer Colin Quinn is best known for his work on "Saturday Night Live," where he anchored "Weekend Update," MTV's 1980s game show "Remote Control," where he served as the announcer/sidekick, and as host of Comedy Central's late-night panel show Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. He has also become known for his comedic one-man shows that offer his unique takes on history and growing up in New York City, including "Irish Wake," "My Two Cents," "Long Story Short," "Unconstitutional," and "The New York Story."
"We all know I don't owe this country anything," says Quinn of his new solo outing. "In fact, it probably owes me. You, however, owe the country a visit to my show to give it a proper sendoff before it implodes." "Red State Blue State" is co-produced by audio entertainment company Audible, as part of a series of live events at the Minetta lane Theatre.
