Colin Quinn, the Irish-American comedian returns in the spotlight with another political set of jokes. The one-man show is all about the Constitution and an imperfect union and he explains why: �I�ll tell you why. Because it�s the one thing that we�re all experts about, which is amazing and impressive because none of us have read it,� he says. �It�s four pages long. That�s kind of a hassle.�
He is well documented with articles and amendments and, at the end, he comes to a conclusion: Our divided nation needs a new Constitutional Convention. �We set it up so it wouldn�t work. But I don�t think it�s supposed to not work this way,� he says.
It�s one unique show. Of course other comedians talk about politics but most of them include that in daily aspects and the references are only some one-joke per show. His ability of talking about it and making fun of something that affects us is not common. Even if he�s right or wrong you get a whole new point of view on politics.
His new show is called �Colin Quinn Unconstitutional� and it opens Thursday at The Barrow Street Theatre.
He has no limits when it comes to talking about what it bothers him. He jokes in a serious way about defending gun owners and why no one moks President Barack Obama.
�This political correctness is so annoying to me. It�s always bugged me. Any comedian worth his salt is going to be bugged by it. It�s censorship,� he says. �It�s social censorship.�
When it comes to what he stand for, he admits that he is ideologically all over the map � pro-gun, pro-abortion rights, pro-death penalty and pro-gay marriage. One thing he�s against is overcrowding.
