Colin Quinn Is ‘Actually Glad’ He Got COVID

Colin Quinn got COVID-19 for the jokes. Well, not exactly. But as the stand-up comedian and star of HBOMax’s ‘Colin Quinn & Friends: A Parking Lot Comedy Show’ explains in this episode, he’s already developing new material about the experience. “And guess what? If I find out other comedians are doing a corona routine, I want to make sure they had it,” he jokes. “I don’t want any medical appropriation!” During this hilarious conversation, Quinn goes deep on his long comedy career, including why he turned down a chance to perform on the ‘Tonight Show,’ how his friend Jerry Seinfeld ended up directing his one-man shows and why he ended up “sabotaging” himself on ‘Saturday Night Live.’
