  • -Like I said, one of our guests tonight is Colin Quinn,

  • the great Colin Quinn,

  • and he has a book out called "Overstated"

  • where he basically roasts every state in the U.S.

  • It's funny, and you can just read it in any order.

  • It's a good book.

  • Well, I wanted to put him to the test,

  • so now it's time for "Overstated with Colin Quinn."

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -♪ Overstated, overstated, overstated, overstated

  • Yeah

  • -Colin, Colin, are you there?

  • Oh, I see you. -Oh, yes.

  • -Wow, yeah.

  • Colin, I thought we could go through some states

  • and you can give them a quick roasting.

  • Does that sound okay? -Sure.

  • -First of all, how are you doing?

  • Are you okay?

  • -Oh, I don't know why you would --

  • You should have said that before...

  • -I know, I know, I know, I know. I understand.

  • I know, but I -- I admit -- Sorry.

  • -Hey, you just started this.

  • -I know, but it wasn't on the teleprompter.

  • But, yeah, you look good. I hope you're okay.

  • -Oh, it wasn't on the teleprompter.

  • -It's not about being a big shot.

  • That's the way it works.

  • Acting like I'm trying to --

  • -No, I wasn't calling you a big shot.

  • I was saying -- I was making a dumb joke that,

  • "It wasn't on the teleprompter. I couldn't read it."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Sorry. -Oh, my God.

  • I guess we started with the first roast already.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • How about this, Colin? Arizona.

  • What could you say about Arizona?

  • -I call them the Instagram state

  • 'cause they're beautiful but empty.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • [ Applause ]

  • -How about -- How about Ohio?

  • -Ohio's like the middle, like the nice --

  • They're like your nice friend that waits in the car

  • while you're hooking up with somebody in the house.

  • They'll sit there and wait to drive you home.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Florida.

  • -Florida's the hot mess that you want to hang out with

  • but you always end up getting arrested with them.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Okay, last state. Pennsylvania.

  • -I don't want to do Pennsylvania

  • 'cause you're gonna feel like it's an attack on you,

  • but it's not.

  • -Why?

  • -Alright, I'll do it. But don't be paranoid, okay?

  • My joke is, it's a state that kind of, like, started,

  • it almost fell apart, then it came back strong.

  • You might call it like the "Fever Pitch" of states,

  • I call it. That's the nickname.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I didn't make up that nickname. That's the state nickname.

  • It's on the license plate.

  • -Why would I even do this?

  • How do I not take that personally?

  • How do I not take that personally?

  • How do I not take that personally?

  • Give it up for Colin Quinn, everybody.

-Like I said, one of our guests tonight is Colin Quinn,
