Colin Quinn: Wrong Side of History
  • West End

Colin Quinn is a stand-up comedian from Brooklyn (okay, Park Slope). From MTV's "Remote Control" to "SNL" to Comedy Central's "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn," Mr. Quinn is not one to take a hint and bow out gracefully. He's been on Broadway with "Colin Quinn: An Irish Wake" and "Colin Quinn: Long Story Short" (also an HBO special) and off-Broadway with his show "Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional" (available on Netflix) and "Colin Quinn: The New York Story," directed by Jerry Seinfeld (also available on Netflix). Recent credits include "Trainwreck," "Girls," and his web series "Cop Show." His first book, "The Coloring Book," is now out from Grand Central Publishing.

In January 2019, Colin Quinn's newest one-man show, "Red State Blue State," premiered to rave reviews at The Minetta Lane Theatre in New York. The special was adapted into CNN's first comedy special in May 2019 and started streaming on Netflix in August 2019.

"I'm as embarrassed as you are that this is my first show in England." - Colin Quinn

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
