EDITOR’S PICK
Colin Quinn at Bay Street
June 23, 8 p.m.

Quinn is more than a local comedian. His politically incorrect sense of humor has caused raucous fits of laughter on Saturday Night Live, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, MTV’s Remote Control, Comedy Central’s Tough Crowd and Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center.

Now he brings his comedic stylings to the East End once more, with a night of nonstop jokes at Bay Street Theater. Tickets are $69–$89 and nearly sold out at press time.

Bay Street Theater, 1 Bay Street, Sag Harbor. 631-725-9500, baystreet.org
