Storyline

It's the way people really talk off-camera, only the camera is on. Chill-out late nights with Colin Quinn and a quartet of comics as they brutally beat-down today's hottest topics. It's hilarious honesty on the half-shell, raw and ready to serve. Written by zonk3r

Trivia

Colin Quinn originally refused to allow Patrice O'Neal on the show. The two had a falling out over O'Neal's demanded salary for "The Colin Quinn Show". O'Neal was banned from the eight episode test run. After the show was picked up, O'Neal confronted Quinn at his office and the two argued out their differences. See more »

Quotes

Host: [the show's final words] This is the end, you know? It's like the Friends finale where they're all together in that apartment. No more Joey and his dumb remarks. I never really watched Friends until the finale, I don't know why...

Truly Politically Incorrect, Unlike Bill Maher...
4 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was very politically incorrect, which made it not only one of the most entertaining shows on the air, but also one of the healthiest. The ideological repression of Liberalism, especially the extreme California variety, is unhealthier than Victorian culture and life under the Taliban combined, and along the same lines.

And one symptom would be that this clever show was pulled despite its success. If you want to see how good it was, just do a search for the title on Google, and see how many pages turn up with Liberals saying it's the most dangerous, harmful TV since Limbaugh got yanked. Remember, negative comments are the best indicator that a show is successful.

On this show, little or nothing was taboo, which is how normal human conversation itself should be. The guests constantly mocked stereotypes, insulted anyone famous they could think of, and destroyed every socio-political event and idea that they came across, good or bad. It was a more entertaining...and informative...version of the McLaughlin Group. It was everything Bill Maher ever told himself Politically Incorrect could be -- Maher being SO politically correct that he was never able to come close, himself. One can only patronize female guests over how tough it is to be a woman in a sexist society, whine about how evil capitalists are destroying the environment, et cetera /so/ many times before you lose your non-PC credentials.

That final segment they did each day, with the contrived sketches, was horrible, though. A total waste of precious time they could have spent battering some conventional wisdom.

If this ever comes out on DVD, I'm there. If Quinn, or any of several regular guests, or anyone else with gonads, ever makes another show like this, I'll follow it with stalker-like enthusiasm.
