Colin Quinn’s “Red State Blue State” special will premiere Memorial Day on CNN

Colin Quinn has done Broadway, HBO and Netflix. For his next trick, his new comedy special is premiering on CNN.

Red State Blue State debuts Memorial Day (Monday, May 27) at 9 p.m. Eastern and 9 p.m. Pacific on CNN.

It’s not completely out of character for the Cable News Network, which already has W. Kamau Bell roaming the country for his series, United Shades of America; CNN also previously gave D.L. Hughley a weekly comedy news program. Quinn’s socio-political work allows the network to give audiences another take on the news.

Here’s a little tease from his earlier off-Broadway run of the show.
