How can a nation composed of states that range from Utah (“The church of states”) to Vermont (“The state of relevant old people”) possibly hang together? In Colin Quinn’s new book "Overstated," the popular comedian, social commentator, and star of the Netflix specials and off-Broadway shows Red State Blue State, The New York Story, and Unconstitutional tackles the condition of our union today.

Tune in to hear the stand-up comedian LIVE in a chat about his new book "Overstated: A Coast-to-Coast Roast of the 50 States" with moderators Dr. Jennifer Aaker and Naomi Bagdonas. An opportunity for live Q & A will follow.


COLIN QUINN is a stand-up comedian from Brooklyn (okay, Park Slope).  From MTV’s “Remote Control” to “SNL” to Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” Mr. Quinn is not one to take a hint and bow out gracefully.  He’s been on Broadway with “Colin Quinn: An Irish Wake” and “Colin Quinn: Long Story Short” (also an HBO special) and off-Broadway with his show “Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional” (available on Netflix) and “Colin Quinn: The New York Story,” directed by Jerry Seinfeld (also available on Netflix). Recent credits include “Trainwreck,” “Girls,” and his web series “Cop Show,” streaming now on LStudio.com. His first book, “The Coloring Book,” is now out from Grand Central Publishing. In January 2019, Colin Quinn premiered his newest one-man show, “Red State Blue State,” to rave reviews at The Minetta Lane Theatre in New York.  The special was adapted into CNN’s first comedy special in May 2019 and started streaming on Netflix in August 2019.
