HBO Premieres “Colin Quinn: Long Story Short” 4/9

Colin QuinnThe hit Broadway show, Colin Quinn: Long Story Short, will premiere on HBO April 9, 2011.

Taped in front of a live audience in New York City’s Helen Hayes Theater, the show spotlights Colin Quinn’s acute observations on the history of the world and human behavior with the rise and fall of Empires. From his opinion that Caesar was the original mobster to expressing displeasure over ancient Greece and Antigone segueing to Costco and Snooki,  from grocery shopping disputes to how times change but the human race remains the same, Quinn does not hold back while cleverly voicing his opinion on societies habits, behavior and consumption.

New York Magazine raves “Colin Quinn: Long Story Short” is “brisk and Seinfeldian”, while TIME Magazine says, “Quinn nails it! A polished act.”
