Colin Quinn brings his one-man show Unconstitutional to the Wyly Theater at 8 p.m. Friday. While he might be an SNL veteran, TV host, and stand-up comedian, Mr. Colin Quinn is better known these days for his conceptually ridiculous Twitter account. Sounding absolutely nothing like Colin Quinn himself, his account @iamcolinquinn has, for a while now, existed in some sort of anti-comedy netherworld where he tweets things that are either jokes which he has to explain in the tweet itself, or inspirational messages that are deeply shallow in nature.
While this might not sound like much to you, he really only does it to get people on Twitter to threaten him with death, maiming, serious disease and so forth. Put it this way, he's the only person Louis C.K.'s Twitter account follows. He even has an avatar that is pictures of him from the 1970s and 1980s. I am absolutely fascinated with his tweets, in the same way I might be fascinated with a car crash. Here are some examples of him infuriating the Internet.
@iamcolinquinn Religion is the ONLY reason for the conflict. What rock have you been under, genius? Do some research.

Hey girls, if you want to look more appealing to me forget the push up bras and push up the sides of your mouth. A smile is the new tits!
