At 1pm today, Colin Quinn has to give a speech that, in recent years, has been knocked out of the park by Marc Maron, Patton Oswalt and Lewis Black respectively, and been a major highlight of Just For Laughs. The last two went viral, with genuine and empowering undertones being passed around and celebrated by the comedy community. The general message? "There are no more gatekeepers... we don't need you any more, so you're gonna have to either jump on board, or get out of our way." Powerful stuff. But don't worry, Colin's been working out his speech on his much beloved, satirical Twitter feed, and it's looking sharp. We're sure Colin will deliver a smashingly intelligent, mush mouthed, inside-joke filled, self-loathing, shoulder shrugging, stuttering masterpiece that will more than match up with his contemporaries. But it's fitting that Colin Quinn is giving an address on the state of comedy, and it's also very fitting that it's titled "Loners in Unity: How Not To Go Insane On The Journey". As the general on the unheralded cult hit Tough Crowd, Colin is no stranger to leading a pack of insane loners, and is one of the most beloved and versatile comedians of the last 20 years. Long before they were household names, there was Colin, showcasing the likes of Patrice O'Neal, Jim Norton, Greg Geraldo, Louis CK and Bill Burr on his innovative cable show. From Saturday Night Live, Tough Crowd and years of grinding it out on stage, never quite becoming a 'star' - Quinn took all his experiences, all of his talents, and changed the game, with his ground-breaking one-man show "Long Story Short" (Watch it on Netflix if you have it.) Long have comedians been fans of the one-man show, but it's been relegated to fringe festivals for the most part, never really reaching main stream audiences. With Jerry Seinfeld's guidance, Quinn was able to take this art-house format, instil his years of stand-up, and produce a comedy special that opened up a whole new world for comics, allowing comedy to co-exist with substance, a point, performance art and even some book learnin'! And so, after years of slaving away at other people's game, Colin Quinn decided to change the game to fit his strengths. And it not only worked... it might have just made him the A-list star he's almost been for a long time. Either way, it's fun to watch him work on his terms and bring notoriety to the one-man-show. We'll be seeing a lot more comics working in this medium, and with Netflix announcing they'll be producing stand-up and documentary specials... we ask the obvious question. Why not a full season of both hosted by Colin Quinn?! Your move Netflix.

Which doesn't include our rag-tag operation. But hey, just in case he reads this after a good old fashion selfie-google-ego-search. Here's the questions we were going to ask Colin Quinn. Feel free to answer them if you want big guy.
