The Mighty Quinn

The affable, unapologetic Colin Quinn visits Treasure Island May 13.

He's one of those salt-of-the-Earth guys and street-smart comics we root for even when he's off the mainstream grid. So it's been especially pleasing to see the career of former SNL cast member and Remote Control funny guy Colin Quinn take a sharp upturn with the run of his successful Broadway show Long Story Short, directed by Jerry Seinfeld and described as "the history of the world in 175 minutes."

See Quinn tell jokes in his affable, unapologetic style when appears in The Club at Treasure Island's Gotham Comedy Series, an impressive slew of events bringing some of the top names in comedy.

Future headliners include Don Irrera, June 10; David Allen Grier, July 8; Richard Lewis, Oct. 14, and Caroline Rhea, date later to be announced.

If you're a Club member, you can be treated to a VIP experience, mingling with the performers at an exclusive champagne after party. In the meantime, The Club is also offering tickets to non-members at $30 per ticket, which can be purchased at or 888-695-0888.
