Colin Quinn performs his one-man show about the history of the world, juxtaposing modern-day behavior with the rise and fall of empires. From his personification of Caesar as the original Italian mobster to his complaints about ancient Greece and Antigone giving way to Costco and Snooki, he is at his satirical best, taking on the attitudes, appetites, and bad habits that toppled the world's most powerful nations.
