Colin Quinn: One In Every Crowd
Colin Quinn One In Every Crowd
You may know him as the anchorman on Saturday Night Live Weekend Update, or from his HBO specials, or maybe from the 1980s MTV show Remote Control, but if you haven't seen Colin Quinn live, you're missing out. Known by fellow comics as the "quintessential New York comedian," Colin Quinn is at his best alone on the stage. On the heels of his wildly successful one-man shows Long Story Short and The New York Story, Quinn appears in his latest performance: One in Every Crowd. There’s always one person in every group situation that ruins everything.
He’s been on Broadway with Irish Wake and Colin Quinn Long Story Short and off-Broadway with Colin Quinn Unconstitutional and Colin Quinn The New York Story. Colin can be seen in the recurring role of Hermie on HBO’s Girls, opposite Amy Schumer in Trainwreck and in Sandy Wexler and Grown Ups with Adam Sandler. Colin Quinn The New York Story (directed by Jerry Seinfeld) and Colin Quinn Unconstitutional are now streaming on Netflix and his web series Cop Show can be seen on lstudio.com. His first and last book The Coloring Book is out now.
Born in Brooklyn or Park Slope as Colin Quinn likes to admit, the beloved comic began performing stand-up shows in 1984, and by 1987, Quinn had gotten his big break as the sidekick announcer on the MTV game show Remote Control. In 1995, Quinn was hired by Saturday Night Live as a writer and featured performer. Before his SNL departure in 2000, Quinn developed recurring characters such as "Lenny the Lion" and "Joe Blow." However, he's perhaps best known for his role as the anchorman of Weekend Update. After leaving the show, Quinn developed Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, a Comedy Central show that featured a panel of comedians who would discuss current social and political issues.
Named one of Comedy Central's 100 Greatest Stand Up Comedians of All Time, Colin Quinn is at his best on the stage with just a mic and an audience. So if you enjoyed his other one man shows, or you just are at a place in your life where you are lost and you need intelligent laughs, come see his new show One In Every Crowd.
