A hilarious look at the ups and downs of great civilizations gone wrong! Charting a course from the excess of ancient Rome to WalMart/Costco/BestBuy, Quinn proves that the forces undermining the American empire are as old as time.

I thought Long Story Short was going to be a comedic look at world history, but it turned out to be a look at different cultures, joking about their cultural stereotypes. The delivery of Colin Quinn's jokes was good, and the show was pretty funny, but it didn't meet my expectations. It also seemed a bit expensive for just a standup comedy show.

Long Story Short is a one-man show starring Colin Quinn. It was more like a stand up comedy show with a theme of different cultures throughout history. The show was hilarious, and I was laughing for most of the show. It was a lot of fun, but I felt that the tickets were a bit over-priced for a one-man stand-up comedy show.
