Colin Quinn Unconstitutional: On May 25th, 1787, fifty-five delegates in wigs and tights sat down to create a country from scratch. In 2013, Colin Quinn offers his unique comedic perspective on our national character. From predator drones to the Kardashians, he pulls no punches in asking if this is what the founding fathers planned.

The show opened at Off-Broadway's Barrow Street Theatre to mostly good reviews: "Get over to this show. Quinn is one of the good guys, one of the informed thinkers, one of the provocative voices that kicks butt." (newyorktheatreguide.com); "Entertaining and a little shocking." (New Yorker); "Fast, furious and funny! In Quinn we trust." (New York Daily News); Hilarious! Wonderfully riotous (Hollywood Reporter).

Colin Quinn Unconstitutional marks Quinn's return to the New York stage after his Broadway engagement of 'Long Story Short,' for which he was nominated for the Drama Desk Award as well as an Emmy Award for the HBO broadcast of the play.

A native of Brooklyn, Colin Quinn began his comic career in New York as a regular on the comedy show circuit. Quinn made his television debut as co-host of MTV's popular game show "Remote Control". Quinn landed a spot on the legendary late-night show, "Saturday Night Live" where he entertained audience for five seasons. After SNL, Quinn tackled societal issues on "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn". Colin's first one-man show "Sanctifying Grace," began off-Broadway in 1994 and was later produced as "Colin Quinn - An Irish Wake" and played at the Helen Hayes Theatre. Last summer, Colin appeared in the Adam Sandler comedy "Grown Ups".
