Stand-Up Comedy Act Hits The Big Stage!

Colin Quinn Long Story Short tickets are on sale for an an interesting stand up comedy act playing on Broadway for a limited run. The popular stand up comic which got his start playing the anchor of Weekend Update on "Saturday Night Live" and latter "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn," on Comedy Central has written and performs the one man show. Using his unique form of satirical comedy Quinn put together an act which promises to tell the history of the fallen world empires in 75 minutes. Colin Quinn Long Story Short is playing at the Helen Hayes Theater for a limited run. This is one of the surprises shows to hit the Broadway stage this fall.

The Broadway stage is home to the art of acting. Few stand up comedy shows are destined to find success. Quinn is one of the rare comics that have been able to pull off the feat and run with it. The show covers everything from ancient civilizations such as Greece and Rome, through the rise of Islam and the colonization of Africa, then up through the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The show is observed through the lens of himself, an Irish street kid. For those who have seen the comics more political work on "Tough Crowd" expect the same witty, razor sharp delivery that leaves you in stitches.


Colin Quinn was born in Brooklyn, New York on June 6, 1959 and raised in Park Slope. His strong accent and New York City mannerisms have become trademarks of his stand up comedy acts. His stand up comedy career began in 1984 playing iconic clubs such as Caroline's in New York City. In 1987 he reached his first major success as co-host on the MTV game show "Remote Control." He was also a writer for the popular show "In Living Color." Quinn is probably most renowned for his work on "SLN" in which he began as a writer in 1995. He soon became a full time cast member for the 1997-1998 season. His memorable skits include "Lenny the Lion" and "Joe Blow" and eventually took over as host for the Weekend Update.

The Colin Quinn Long Story Short production began playing off-Broadway at the Bleecker Street Theatre on June 19, 2010. The show was extended and ran through September 4. Quinn made his Broadway debut back in 1998 with the one man act of "Colin Quinn - An Irish Wake." The show was co-written with fellow comedian Lou DiMaggio and also ran at the Helen Hayes Theater.
