General George Patton was born on this day in 1885. He was known as Old Blood and Guts… If you’re not familiar with his personality, just imagine Janet Reno with 5 stars.
DON’T MISS OUT ON A COMEDIC NIGHT
OF HISTORICAL PROPORTIONS!
Directed by Jerry Seinfeld
HISTORY OF THE WORLDIN 75 MINUTES.
Comically channeling the demise of great world empires, Colin Quinn uses his “articulate brand of comedy” in taking audiences through an uproarious history of the world in 75 minutes. From his personification of Caesar as the original Italian mobster to his complaints about Ancient Greece and Antigone giving way to Costco and Snooki, Quinn is at his satirical best, taking on the attitudes, appetites and bad habits that toppled the world’s most powerful nations. Colin Quinn Long Story Short proves that throughout human history, the joke has always been on us.
Begins October 22nd at THE HELEN HAYES THEATRE – 240 West 44th St. (Between 7th and 8th)

“IMMORTAL. Quinn’s funniest material is casual, offbeat commentary of intensity and complexity in the skeptical,
confiding style of the wiseacre.” - The New York Times
“HISTORICAL AND HYSTERICAL. While he dutifully traces his saga from the caveman era to the present, Quinn happens to be very, very funny. Clearly benefited from Seinfeld’s influence, with tight pacing and a procession of hilarious one-liners.”
- New York Post
“A CLEVER and informative look at many past civilizations. Astute and often hilarious.
Long Story Short is a tale worth attending.” - TheaterMania
“Clever. INSPIRED. Hilarious. GENIUS.” - Variety

On this day in 1938, Lil’Abner cartoonist Al Capp created Sadie Hawkins Day, a day when women become aggressive about dating… For Madonna, every day was Sadie Hawkins day.
On this day in 1989, the Berlin Wall was opened… Making just about everything Bob Villa did look small by comparison.

On this day in 1950, Entertainment Tonight personality Mary Hart was born. One woman claimed that Mary’s voice caused her mental disorder… While many man seem to have been driven crazy by her legs.
On this day in 1952 Hugh Hefner’s daughter, Christie Hefner was born… It must have been weird being a toddler at the Playboy Mansion… Particularly during the stage of breastfeeding.

On this day in 1919, romantic screen lover Rudolph Valentino was married. It lasted six hours… So looking back, Lyle Lovett didn’t do so bad with Julia Roberts.
On this day in 1968, Richard Nixon was elected president. He appeared on Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In… Perhaps an appropriate show for the current US president would be Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?
