What does it mean to be a New Yorker?
“Rude, opinionated, pushy, loud, fast-talking, sarcastic” — those are just a few words that Brooklyn-born comedian Colin Quinn uses to describe NYC residents in his Netflix special, streaming now.
In “Colin Quinn: The New York Story,” the standup comedian takes viewers through a not-so-PC account of NYC’s history, touching on countless immigrant groups and how they’ve been woven into the city’s culture.
“All the people that came here came here because they were miserable where they were, so now, you know, you’ve got a city filled with miserable people,” he quips.
The whole special is definitely worth a watch, but here are some of our favorite bits from “The New York Story.”
