On May 25th, 1787, fifty-five delegates in wigs and tights sat down to create a country from scratch. In 2014, comedian and satirist, Colin Quinn tackles 227 years of American constitutional calamities in 70 minutes in his hit one-man show, Colin Quinn Unconstitutional. Quinn offers his unique comedic perspective on our national character in a blazing fast and hilarious US history lesson. From predator drones to the Kardashians, Quinn doesn’t pull any punches in asking if this is really what the founding fathers had originally planned. Tickets ($27/$42) are still available to see the show at the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz at 8Pm on Friday, May 2nd, 2014.
