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

Tragic loss to satire and critical thinking when cancelled
21 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a tragic waste when this show was cancelled. I could not agree more with reviewer "peddlerofbls." Colin has such a sharp mind, and had such self-confidence that he chose truly bright and funny people like Judy Gold, Patrice O'Neal, and Greg Giraldo, who did not toady to him by any means, but added their own super-acute two cents while commenting on issues of the day.

The fact that Comedy Central took him off and yet keeps such infantile rubbish as South Park and Dave Chappelle is so maddening. Sure, Colbert Report and Daily Show are pretty good in their own ways, but they are not the feast for real intellectuals that Colin Quinn's Tough Crowd was.

Comedy Central cannot begin to be taken as "cutting edge" when it sidelines truly edgy fare as Tough Crowd and panders to middle-of-the-roaders who kid themselves they are witty because they watch Jon Stewart smirk nightly.

The old saying "cream rises to the top" is completely false. In TV, including Comedy Central, "mediocrity rises to the top." Quelle dommage.

BRING BACK TOUGH CROWD, you cretins at C. C.!!!!
