• Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State will tackle liberals and conservatives in New York debut

    Colin Quinn is going to solve the political divide in this country in his new one-man show Red State Blue State. Well, he’s going to try.

    The Tough Crowd comedian will expose “the absurdities, hypocrisies, and calamities on both sides of the political divide,” according to a press release. This is no ‘witch hunt’ =cough, Donald=. Quinn “is here to own the libs, the conservs, and all of you in between.”

    The son of two teachers, Quinn is used to schooling audiences ever since his hit Broadway show Long Story Short gave a comedic history lesson of the world to HBO audiences nationwide. In Unconstitutional, he focused on the Founding Father’s and the four-page document on which this country was created. Jerry Seinfeld directed the Brooklyn native’s more recent show The New York Story, teaching audiences about the 400-plus-year history of his home city. Both Unconstitutional and The New York Story are available to stream on Netflix.

    Previews begin at the Minetta Lane Theater on January 5 and the official opening is scheduled for January 22. Quinn is offering a 30 Under 30 deal: $30 tickets for select performances for people 30-years-old or younger. The deal is available in person at the box office with valid ID.

    Older or younger than 30, fans can get tickets for Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State online at www.ColinQuinnShow.com or by calling TicketMaster at 1-800-745-3000.
