Colin Quinn net worth: Colin Quinn is an American comedian and television host who has a net worth of $2 million. Colin Quinn got his start in the mid-1980s when he quit his job as a bartender to pursue a career in comedy. With tremendous luck, he found fame only a few years later, landing a job as co-host on the MTV game show Remote Control. From there, he worked as a writer and stand-up comedian, most notably on the sketch comedy series In Living Color, before getting hired by NBC's Saturday Night Live. His time on Saturday Night Live was polarizing, with many viewers finding his idiosyncratic and deadpan delivery style out of sync with the show at the time. Still, Colin managed to land the coveted spot of "Weekend Update" anchor, serving as Norm Macdonald's replacement. After leaving Saturday Night Live, Quinn attempted to traverse the dangerous territory of prime-time network sketch comedy with The Colin Quinn Show, which only lasted three episodes. He then made a move to Comedy Central, where his round-table discussion show Tough Crowd failed to find an audience. His most recent project was Long Story Short, a one-man show about the history of America, the premiere of which was directed by Jerry Seinfeld.
