COLIN QUINN (Author/Performer) A native of Brooklyn, Colin Quinn began his stand-up career in New York as a regular on the comedy club circuit. He made his television debut as co-host of MTV’s popular game show “Remote Control”. In 1995, Quinn landed a spot on the legendary late-night show “Saturday Night Live”, where he entertained audiences for five seasons with his writing and unforgettable characters before stepping in as anchor for “SNL”’s popular Weekend Update segment. After “SNL”, Quinn tackled societal issues on Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn”, in which he served as the show’s host, creator and executive producer, from 2002 – 2004. In addition to his television work, Colin also wrote the screenplay for the movie Celtic Pride and has appeared in many films, including A Night at the Roxbury, Comedian, and Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2. 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. In 2010, he returned to the Helen Hayes Theatre and starred in the hit Broadway show Colin Quinn LongStory Short. Directed by Jerry Seinfeld, the show was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and was nominated for an Emmy as an HBO special in 2011. When not working on his future project, Colin is touring Unconstitutional across the country and working on his book chronicling history from a satirical perspective, titled Yesterday’s News (Grand Central Publishing).
