Colin Quinn started his 12 year career as a stand-up comic in 1985, in such Manhattan clubs as Caroline's, and The Comic Strip. He was noted as being one of the standout comics of the Eighties. In 1987 he started a three year stint as the Co-Host of MTV's popular game show Remote Control. At the end of that show's run he hosted his own MTV show, Colin Quinn's Manly World, a sports/comedy show. 

At MTV he also wrote and starred in the comedy short, Going Back to Brooklyn with Ben Stiller (Oct 1989), and also starred in the comedy/variety show 2Hip4TV (1988) on another network.

In the early 90's he took on the hosting duties for "Caroline's Comedy Hour," a weekly show on the A&E network that showcased up-and-coming as well as popular stand-up comics.

In addition to his television work, Colin has also appeared in movies, including Who's the Man?, Married to the Mob, The Roxbury Guys, and most recently, Comedian
