Colin Quinn’s critically acclaimed stage show Unconstitutional will get a second life. Following its five-week run at the Barrow Street Theatre in New York, the historical comedy will open again on July 4, but this time at the Cherry Lane Theatre.

The 70-minute show finds the veteran comedian and creator of the prematurely canceled Tough Crowd on Comedy Central, “tackling 226 years of American Constitutional calamities in 70 minutes,” according to the show’s official description. “He offers his unique comedic perspective on our national character. From predator drones to the Kardashians, he pulls no punches in asking if this is what the founding fathers planned.”

In addition to the new run off-Broadway, Quinn also plans to take the show on the road this fall, starting with the 13 original colonies. You can buy tickets to the Cherry Lane Theater shows here. Quinn’s previous stage show, the Jerry Seinfeld-directed Long Story Short had a successful run on Broadway before it ran as a comedy special in 2011 on HBO.
