COLIN QUINN, the stand-up comedian hailing from Brooklyn (or more precisely, Park Slope), has inadvertently been part of your life's comedic landscape. From his early days on MTV's "Remote Control" to Saturday Night Live (SNL) and Comedy Central's "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn," Quinn has persistently stuck around, gracefully ignoring hints to exit. Broadway witnessed his wit in productions like "Colin Quinn: An Irish Wake" and "Colin Quinn: Long Story Short." Off-Broadway, he's delivered memorable shows such as "Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional," "Colin Quinn: The New York Story" (directed by Jerry Seinfeld), "Colin Quinn: Red State, Blue State," "Colin Quinn: The Last Best Hope," and the latest, "Colin Quinn: Small Talk." Notable film and TV appearances include "Trainwreck" and "Girls," alongside his web series "Cop Show," available on his YouTube channel. His latest book, "Overstated: A Coast-to-Coast Roast of the 50 States," is now available from Macmillan publishing.
