Colin Quinn’s Long Story Short


Hour 2

Comedian COLIN QUINN comes in to the Radio Times studio to discuss how he tackled reducing the history of the world in 75 minutes. Just coming off a successful run on Broadway, “Long Story Short,” directed by Jerry Seinfeld, is an observational comic take on ancient Greece through today’s Iraq and Afghanistan wars (restaged as a New York City late-night bar fight).   A long-time political satirist, who broke out on MTV’s “Remote Control,” Quinn anchored Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” and hosted Comedy Central’s show, “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn.” “Long Story Short,” a Philadelphia Theater Company production, will run at the Suzanne Roberts Theater June 29-July10.
