    OH MY GOD!

    Did anyone see this Mon. night? Perhaps the most politically incorrect, offensive, and racially charged show in a long time...anyone?

    P.S. It was hysterical!

    It wasn't what I was expecting at all. I agree, however, it was very funny. It's bound to piss a few people off.

    I like what I'm hearing from the first two posts...however I have to admit I am still baffled as to how Colin Quinn got his own show. I guess I'll have to check it out though...I love offensive material.

    I just don't find the guy funny ... which is a shame since I realize his potential. It just looks like he doesn't come as prepared as he should be or he doesn't rehearse enough. He definitely needs a speech coach.

    I understand what you mean there, Don. I remember back when he was doing the news on SNL, he stuttered and got mixed up a lot. Sometimes, it just completely ruined the jokes......

    Must not be my "cup of tea." I did not laugh at all during the show. Instead I found it to be a time-filler between Fear Factor and the SNL John Belushi tribute.

    I saw the show last night and I agree that it is the most politically incorrect show I have ever seen. Man, they made fun of EVERYBODY and EVERYTHING, Colin had Nuclear War in his stand-up for crying out loud.

    I like Colin Quinn and they way he speaks and comes off on camera.

    There was some very funny stuff, the italian talking about Olive Garden was very funny and Quinn talking about Guliani(like he was mayor of all these cities) and Bush(looks like a kid getting pushed out on stage to sing for his parents. He just has low self esteem that's all). The news updates cracked me up to, the guy that always pokes you when he talks.

    I thought it was pretty funny too. I did especially like the Olive Garden bit...mainly because I always bitch about those commercials.

    ...overall, pretty funny stuff.

    How long before pressure makes them tone it down a notch?
