      Colin Quinn: An Overstated Book Tour

      Event Details:

      How can a nation composed of states that range from Utah (“The church of states”) to Vermont (“The state of relevant old people”) possibly hang together? In Colin Quinn’s new book "Overstated," the popular comedian, social commentator, and star of the Netflix specials and off-Broadway shows Red State Blue State, The New York Story, and Unconstitutional tackles the condition of our union today. Tune in to hear the stand-up comedian from Brooklyn discuss his new book "Overstated: A Coast-to-Coast Roast of the 50 States" with moderators Dr. Jennifer Aaker and Naomi Bagdonas. An opportunity for live Q & A will follow.

      COLIN QUINN is a stand-up comedian from Brooklyn (okay, Park Slope).  From MTV’s “Remote Control” to “SNL” to Comedy Central’s “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” Mr. Quinn is not one to take a hint and bow out gracefully.  He’s been on Broadway with “Colin Quinn: An Irish Wake” and “Colin Quinn: Long Story Short” (also an HBO special) and off-Broadway with his show “Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional” (available on Netflix) and “Colin Quinn: The New York Story,” directed by Jerry Seinfeld (also available on Netflix). Recent credits include “Trainwreck,” “Girls,” and his web series “Cop Show,” streaming now on His first book, “The Coloring Book,” is now out from Grand Central Publishing. In January 2019, Colin Quinn premiered his newest one-man show, “Red State Blue State,” to rave reviews at The Minetta Lane Theatre in New York.  The special was adapted into CNN’s first comedy special in May 2019 and started streaming on Netflix in August 2019.

      DR JENNIFER AAKER is the General Atlantic Professor at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and a leading expert on how purpose and meaning shape individual choices and how technology can positively impact well-being. Her work has been widely published in leading scientific journals and featured in The Economist, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, and Science. A recipient of the Distinguished Scientific Achievement Award, Aaker counts winning a dance-off in the early 1980s among her greatest feats.

      NAOMI BAGDONAS is a Lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and an Executive Coach. She helps leaders be more creative, flexible and resilient in the face of change by facilitating interactive sessions for Fortune 100 companies and nonprofits, and coaching executives and celebrities for appearances ranging from Saturday Night Live to The Today Show. Formally trained at The Upright Citizens Brigade, Bagdonas performs at comedy venues and teaches improv in San Francisco’s county jail. Her constant stream of foster dogs describe her as gullible and full of treats.
