NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"In “Long Story Short,” a snappy recap of human civilization as seen through the skeptical eyes of a standup comic, Colin Quinn traces the roots of various contemporary phenomena, including the economic crisis, the Middle East conflict and “Jersey Shore,” back through the centuries to the Greeks and beyond. "

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW:

"The History Channel meets Comedy Central in "Saturday Night Live" alumnus Colin Quinn's whip-smart dissertation on the rise and fall of the world's great empires."

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"Though it combines elements of political cartoon and history lecture, "Colin Quinn: Long Story Short" is basically a 75-minute standup routine, and a mostly funny one."

NEWSDAY REVIEW:

"In a country where more and more people get their news from Jon Stewart, what's so unthinkable about getting our world history from Colin Quinn?"

NEW JERSEY NEWSROOM REVIEW:

"Following a successful summer stint downtown with "Long Story Short," snarky humorist Colin Quinn reopened his very funny solo show on Tuesday at Broadway's Helen Hayes Theatre, where he intends to remain in residence until early January."

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS REVIEW:

"Global studies just got funnier and faster. Thank Colin Quinn whose solo show, "Long Story Short," opened Tuesday night at Broadway's Helen Hayes Theatre. "

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW:

"This past summer, former Saturday Night Live comedian Colin Quinn enjoyed a successful Off Broadway run with Colin Quinn Long Story Short, his one-man show directed by Jerry Seinfeld (original review). Now arriving on the Great White Way, Long Story Short manages to hold on to its small-scale appeal while also comfortably filling a much larger stage."

CURTAIN UP REVIEW:

"If you buy a ticket, or otherwise enroll, for the Long Story Short class/lecture given by the personable comedian Colin Quinn, you will undoubtedly be impressed and possibly delighted at how he compresses the history of mankind/civilization into a fact and fun packed seventy five minutes. His humor-inflected monologue focuses on the why, how, and therefore behind the dissolution and in some cases the total demise of the world's greatest empires, nations, and cultures. Quinn stands among some faux stone steps and in front of a large curved (think mini-Cinemascope) screen upon which are projected a stunning array of classical scenes, the work of designer David Gallo. Behind the screen is an expansive map of the world. What a world it is that we are about to learn about. "

NEW YORK MAGAZINE REVIEW:

"As empire-burning barbarians go, Colin Quinn is a flaming moderate: the wiseguy with the midsized battle axe and just one human head hanging from his belt (not a family-of-three, like those other showoffs). “No offense,” says the SNL alum at the top of Long Story Short, his one-man, seventy-minute history of the world, “but we’re the descendants of the pricks. We’re not the people who starved to death waiting their turn.” This more or less sums up Quinn’s tilt on genus Homo: two parts self-taught Social Darwinism to one part brisk, Seinfeldian essentialism. (That’s only natural, considering Sir Jerry directed and subsidized this show.)"
