A pleasingly funny amble through American history. Mr. Quinn has always been a little ahead of the curve.
In his new solo show, popular stand-up comedian and SNL veteran Colin Quinn tackles 226 years of American history in 70 minutes. Beginning with the U.S. Constitution’s preamble and going through the various amendments, Quinn takes apart the individual freedoms granted in the four-page (!) document and delves into such subjects as political correctness, class status and the judicial system. He also looks at the evolution of politics and political leaders, media outlets, popular celebrities, U.S. Presidents and why the Kardashians are the perfect embodiment of the American Dream.
Colin Quinn wants to know: “What is with The Constitution?” Prowling the intimate stage, Quinn is like the best teacher you’ve ever had, only a heck of a lot funnier. He takes a subject he loves and knows intimately and explains it to the audience in a way that makes it not only fun, but alive and relevant. Depending upon the audience’s reactions, Quinn riffs on whatever subjects, under the general heading of the Constitution, come to mind. For anyone who’s a fan of smart political humor, Colin Quinn Unconstitutional makes for a cool and hilarious night at the theater.
