Part of why I love Colin Quinn is that, unlike other "edgy" celebs, he's so edgy, he falls off regularly.

That said, the Broadway show is pretty polished ("NO HECKLING," said the flyer passed out in the theatre). The audience was mixed -- T-shirts and fancy Broadway dress having some good laughs together.

It was great.
