Celebrity of the Day


Colin Quinn

Colin Quinn (born June 6, 1959) is a stand-up comedian from Brooklyn (okay, Park Slope).

From MTV's "Remote Control" to "Saturday Night Live" to Comedy Central's "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn," Mr. Quinn is not one to take a hint and bow out gracefully.

He's been on Broadway with Colin Quinn: An Irish Wake and Colin Quinn: Long Story Short (also an HBO special) and Off-Broadway with his show Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional (available on Netflix) and most recently Colin Quinn: The New York Story, directed by Jerry Seinfeld (also available on Netflix).

Recent credits include Amy Schumer's hit comedy feature Trainwreck, HBO's "Girls," and his web series "Cop Show," streaming now on LStudio.com.

His first and last book, "The Coloring Book," is now out from Grand Central Publishing.

Colin Quinn is back and not a moment too soon. The satirical sage from Brooklyn returns with Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State (www.ColinQuinnShow.com), 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. The new comedy written by and starring Colin Quinn and directed by Bobby Moresco, who last directed Colin Quinn on Broadway in An Irish Wake, will officially open tonight January 20th at The Minetta Lane Theatre, (18 Minetta Lane) for a limited engagement through March 5th. Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State is produced by Audible, Mike Lavoie, Carlee Briglia, and Brian Stern. The Minetta Lane Theatre is Audible's creative home for live performances in New York, and Audible will record the show live for release as an audio play.
