LONG STORY SHORT OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS

Synopsis: Covering more than 2000 years in 75 minutes, Long Story Short is Colin Quinn's hilarious look at the ups and downs of great civilizations gone wrong. In this one-man sendup, Quinn channels comedic personalities of nations past, offering satirical takes on the attitudes, appetites and habits that toppled powerful empires. Charting a comical course from the excess of ancient Rome to WalMart/Costco/BestBuy, Quinn proves that the forces undermining the American empire are as old as time. Directed by Jerry Seinfeld, the moral of Long Story Short is that the greatest Empires of history, like most people, have a basic approach to life and never really change, even if it is clearly leading them to ruin.

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.

NEW YORK POST REVIEW:

"Here's the difference be tween seeing a stand-up comic in a theater and seeing one in a club: The material is usually framed by a "concept" in a theater, ticket prices are higher -- and drinks are . . . unavailable. "

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW:

"During his tenure behind the Weekend Update desk on Saturday Night Live, Colin Quinn seemed to have to work harder than most while wringing humor from the news headlines. True, it didn't help that his spell as fake anchor followed that of Norm MacDonald, whose meta-disinterest in courting audience approval just made his jokes funnier. Regardless, there were certainly weeks when, of the 10 pounds the SNL cameras deposited on Quinn, at least a couple appeared to be made up of flop sweat. "

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"In his new solo show, Long Story Short, at 45 Bleecker, former Saturday Night Live star Colin Quinn sets out, in his fashion, to tell the whole history of the world in a mere 75 minutes. While he may not totally accomplish that obviously impossible goal, Quinn nevertheless provides a clever and informative look at many past civilizations, while also making astute and often hilairous observations about how our current behavior is informed by where we've come from. "

NEW JERSEY NEWSROOM REVIEW:

""Long Story Short" is Colin Quinn's wryly funny summary of civilization (and lack of it) in 75 snarky minutes. Neatly staged by Jerry Seinfeld, Quinn's sharp new solo show opened Sunday and is a cinch to sell out the 300-seat Bleecker Street Theatre for as long as he cares to perform it."
