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

on Colin Quinn
10 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

It was hard living in Staten Island, New York after 911. It was so depressing for me and family and friends. We were burnt out because of it. If I did not watch comedy central - Colin Quinn, Nick DePaolo and the gang, I don't know where I would be. I was so sick after 911, and a little laugh at night with Colin was what I needed after watching Fox news all day. Please don't knock down comedy. It really helps depression and helps you live longer to laugh out loud. Surveys say if you watch comedy, your good cells destroy bad ones and you live longer and healthier. I guess a dose of comedy a day keeps the doctor away. No kidding. I wish the regulars from tough crowd would go on tour. I know a lot of people who would go see them. Just like Jeff Foxworthy and his crew tour. Also some people just don't get political comedy or have the common sense you need for it, and that is why they cannot connect to this show.
