Colin Quinn is a stand-up comedian from Brooklyn (OK, Park Slope). From MTV’s “Remote Control” to “Saturday Night Live” to Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” Quinn is not one to take a hint and bow out gracefully. His credits include two Broadway performances, “An Irish Wake” and “Long Story Short” (also an HBO special); two comedy specials, “Unconstitutional” and “The New York Story,” directed by Jerry Seinfeld (both available on Netflix); the movie “Trainwreck;” popular TV show “Girls;” and the web series “Cop Show.” His first book, “The Coloring Book: A Comedian Solves Race Relations in America,” was released by Grand Central Publishing in 2015.

In January of 2019, Quinn’s newest one-man show, “Red State Blue State,” premiered to rave reviews at the Minetta Lane Theatre in New York, was adapted into CNN’s first comedy special in May, and started streaming on Netflix in August.

One of the longest-running cast members in the 41-year history of “Saturday Night Live,” versatile comedian Tim Meadows crafted some of the series’ most memorable characters during his 10 years on the popular late-night show. Such characters included “The Ladies Man,” Leon Phelps, and Lionel Osbourne, host of the fictional public affairs show “Perspectives,” as well as uncanny impressions of OJ Simpson, Ike Turner, and Sammy Davis Jr. Meadows played the school principal in the hit comedy “Mean Girls” and co-starred with Adam Sandler and Chris Rock in the blockbuster comedies “Grown Ups” and “Grown Ups 2.” He co-starred with Andy Samberg in “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” for Universal Pictures and in the Fox hybrid live action/animated comedy “Son of Zorn” from Chris Miller and Phil Lord.

Currently, Meadows can be seen in his lead role in “No Activity” on CBS All Access and is a frequent recurring character on ABC’S hit comedy “The Goldbergs” and its spin-off, “Schooled.”
