Colin Quinn is FRIGGIN' HILARIOUS!!!!
10 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

I had just checked into a Motel 6 in Centralia Washington, exhausted from driving non-stop for about 12 hours from San Jose California, on my way to Seattle. I was weary, full of contempt and slightly sub-postal road-rage, and wanted nothing more than to drop my head on a pillow and pass out. I turned on the TV to find some background noise to drown out the freeway traffic and lull me to sleep. While thumbing through the channels on the hotel remote, a stand-up comedian talking about the Ancient Greeks seemed perfect. Only problem was, I started laughing...and kept laughing. Not just mildly amused laughs, but wiping the tears from my eyes 'cuz I'm laughing so hard laughs. Who would of thought history could be so funny?!!?

The hotel didn't have an HBO guide (cheap bastards) so I had to wait 'til they rolled the credits to find out who this funny SOB was. I will definitely buy the DVD/Bluray when it comes out and am very interested in seeing whatever else Colin Quinn has/is going to put out. I even signed up on his website! Colin Quinn, you have a new fan! When are you going on tour? Hope you bring your show to Seattle or LA. Me and my friends will definitely come to see it. You are the funniest comedian I've seen in a very long time. Jerry Seinfeld (he directed this show) is right, smart and dumb people can appreciate this show. Since Seinfeld (the show) ended, there seems to be a shortage of intelligent humor. Colin is like a crazy substitute History teacher that will have you laughing your ass off while you learn about us as a society and why the world is the way it is today. HBO, we want more stuff like this. Colin, keep doing what you're doing...you've struck gold.
