There are so many ways you could know Colin Quinn. Way back in the day he was on an MTV game show called Remote Control. Less back in the day he was on SNL. And recently he had his own show on Comedy Central — Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. He’s been a comedian for years and years and years and has the big-name friendships to prove it. (He’s the only comedian Louis C.K. follows on Twitter.) His latest stage show, Unconstitutional, is coming to Dallas and it’s basically 70 minutes of a Quinn-crafted history lesson openly mocking our culture and making astute observations on what this country was intended to be and what we’ve tragically become. Judd Apatow, Ben Stiller and New York Magazine all say you’re basically a moron if you don’t go see it. Seriously, if you can carve out 60 minutes a week for that craphole Walking Dead, you can go see Unconstitutional at 8 p.m. Friday at Wyly Theatre, 2400 Flora St. Tickets start at $30.
