Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn ran from 2002 to 2004. It was a breathe of fresh air in a politically charged society. It also started a format that is still used today in the podcast world. Colin Quinn was the host and would have a variety of topics that his 4 comic panelists would share witty and sometimes controversial opinions. With regular appearances from Nick Di Paolo, Greg Giraldo, Patrice O’Neal, and Jim Norton, the show from beginning to end was smart, clever and funny. Tough Crowd is probably best known for when Dennis Leary and Greg Giraldo got into a fight while taping. Never a dull moment, Tough Crowd is a great throwback to a time when funny was just funny. Watch the video of Di Paolo, Giraldo, Carlin and Norton on Tough Crowd. Though it is topic driven, it still remains relevant and speaks to the culture today.
