Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn

Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn


Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn was a talk show on Comedy Central which borrowed heavily in premise and format from a previous Comedy Central production, Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher. Like Politically Incorrect, the idea of the show was to have roundtable discussions, except instead of inviting various guests of many views, mixing entertainers expressing themselves with experts and political figures, Quinn's guests consisted mainly of second-string comedians from the Olive Tree Cafe, the restaurant connected with the Comedy Cellar in New York City. It aired weeknights at 11:30 p.m. ET, immediately following The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It debuted in 2003, and was put on an "indefinite hiatus" in October 2004, with what was presumably its final episode airing on November 4th of that year. The show featured Colin Quinn and four other comedian guests discussing current events and issues. the emphasis was on the comedy and the debates were never settled. The show opened with a monologue by Quinn; after the opening credits, the debates happened throughout most of the show. Near the end there was usually a sketch of some sort, followed by each of the four guests doing a brief monologue on a particular topic that was discussed earlier in the episode which. The comedians usually prepared these monologues ahead of time.
