The U.S. Constitution may be the highest law of our land, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it, as happens when Philadelphia Theatre Company presents Colin Quinn’s Unconstitutional at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, June 13-July 6.
In this one-man show, Quinn offers a satirical take on 226-year old document, riffing on assorted topics currently confronting our country, such as immigration law, gun control and health care reform.
Although Quinn has at it with the Constitution, it’s obvious he’s a patriot who truly respects what our Founding Fathers had in mind when they concocted the document back in 1787.
He’s a genuine history-lover who delves deep into the Constitutional text, and American history, before cracking wise with a sharp absurd point of view.
Quinn is likely best known for his role as a cast member of Saturday Night Live, where he served as a snarky anchor of “Weekend Update.” He also appeared in the Adam Sandler film Grown Ups and has a recurring role on Girls on HBO.
A regular on the stand-up comedy circuit, with this show Quinn does a stand up job of combining astute commentary with lots of laughs.
Tickets, starting at $49, are available online.
