Colin Quinn announces his UK debut

London gig next month

American comic Colin Quinn has announced his first UK gig in a 35-year stand-up career.

The former Saturday Night Live regular, who has hosted his own Comedy Central show Tough Crowd and played Amy Schumer’s father in Trainwreck, will be at London’s Leicester Square Theatre on December 28.

He said: ‘Yes…I’m as embarrassed as you are that this is my first show in England!’

Quinn has three specials on Netflix, including his latest – Red State Blue State – and 2016’s The New York Story, which was directed by Jerry Seinfeld.

Tickets for his UK visit, priced £26.50, are available here.
