Colin Quinn: Long Story Short

1hr. 15min.


Colin Quinn brings his new one-man show Long Story Short to Broadway! Jerry Seinfeld has directed the work, which premiered Off-Broadway at the Bleecker Street Theatre this past summer. Comically channeling the demise of great world empires, Quinn uses his "articulate brand of comedy" in taking audiences through an uproarious history of the world in 75 minutes. From his personification of Caesar as the original Italian mobster to his complaints about Ancient Greece and Antigone giving way to Costco and Snooki, Quinn is at his satirical best, taking on the attitudes, appetites and bad habits that toppled the world's most powerful nations. Colin Quinn Long Story Short proves that throughout human history, the joke has always been on us.
