No, didn’t see Colin Quinn while he played Toronto
That would involve leaving the house.
And if anyone had doubts Quinn could make American history funny and entertaining to a theatre packed full of Canadians, he proved them wrong. Unconstitutional was a funny, thought-provoking and tight hour of comedy that proved Colin remains one of the masters of observational humor.
