Comically channeling the demise of great world
empires, Colin Quinn uses his "articulate brand of comedy" in taking audiences through an uproarious
history of the world in 75 minutes. From his personification of Caesar as the original Italian mobster to his
complaints about Ancient Greece and Antigone giving way to Costco and Snooki, Quinn is at his satirical
best, taking on the attitudes, appetites and bad habits that toppled the world's most powerful nations.
Colin Quinn: Long Story Short proves that throughout human history, the joke has always been on us.
