Colin Quinn was born in 1959 in Brooklyn, New York, to a couple of teachers who recognized his natural flair for comedy when he was a child. After attending Stony Brook University for a little while, Quinn began performing stand-up in the early 1980’s. His first gig was as co-host for Remote Control on MTV in 1987, which lasted for three years. The role made Quinn a household name, and after leaving the show, his career took off and has flourished ever since.
Colin followed up the job at MTV by hosting Caroline’s Comedy Hour for A&E, and then began writing for television and film, contributing to such notable shows as In Living Color and movies such as Celtic Pride. In the mid 1990’s, he joined the writers and eventually the cast of Saturday Night Live, creating such memorable characters as “ Joe Blow,” “Rolf,” and “Lenny the Lion.” After Norm Macdonald left SNL, Quinn took over as the host of Weekend Update, and gave audiences dead-on impersonations of numerous celebrities, including Robert De Niro.
After leaving Saturday Night Live, Colin Quinn launched his own show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, on Comedy Central. The show lasted for two seasons before its cancellation, at which time Quinn turned to a variety of other comedic outlets, including radio, appearing frequently on The Opie & Anthony Show and co-hosting the Nick DiPaolo show. Most recently, Colin Quinn appeared in Grown Ups alongside Adam Sandler, and in his own stand-up show, Colin Quinn Long Story Short, on Broadway. A filmed version of the performance aired on HBO, and in 2011, Quinn brought the performance to other cites around the nation, including Philadelphia and Chicago.
Colin Quinn still performs regularly in New York City, at the Comedy Cellar. He ranks on the Comedy Central list of the 100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time.
