FEB. 15 UPDATE: Colin Quinn has had a heart attack and the show will be rescheduled for another date.

Below is a statement from Quinn:

"I've had a health scare in the form of a heart attack. My heart goes out to all the people who bought tickets to my show. Literally. My heart went out. I know you people are still mad that I postponed the show even though I had a heart attack. I felt the same way when I bought Lou Reed tickets last year. I will reschedule once you tell me which weekends are best for you." 

From earlier:

Are you ready for a laugh at the expense of our nation's political state? Colin Quinn and his "One in Every Crowd" tour is coming to the Lowcountry on Feb. 19 at The Arts Center of Coastal Carolina.

"You look at the country and it really is, like everyone says, more divided than it's ever been," says Quinn. "It's amazing. â¦People see things differently. They see life differently and they're not willing to compromise."

Quinn is 30 shows in on a nationwide tour roasting the politics, politicians and the folks so set in their ways they won't even acknowledge that another opinion is allowed.

"Nobody's changing their opinions," he says. "Everybody feels like they're in the right. ⦠There's always the person that's going to ruin it for everybody. And that's how it goes."

Quinn has made his name laughing at the world around him. He's been a part of the hit HBO series "Girls" and the comedy feature film "Trainwreck" with Amy Schumer. And don't forget his runs hosting Weekend Update on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and as host of Comedy Central's fan-favorite series "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn."

But this is his first traditional stand-up tour in more than seven years after the successful runs of his Broadway and off-Broadway one-man show "Colin Quinn: The New York Story," directed by Jerry Seinfeld, and earning a Drama Desk Award nomination for his show "Colin Quinn: Long Story Short."

He says touring is the measuring stick to learn how funny you really are.

"Going to places where you have to see people and you have to deal with people where they live. The attitudes are different around the country," he says. "The bottom line with comedy is people don't really care about my opinions as long as I'm getting laughs. It's almost false advertising to call myself a comedian."

As for how to mend the country's broken lines of communication, Quinn says he's got a couple of ideas in the show. But most of them aren't really helpful. Still, it means he's got plenty of material.

"[The show's] going to go on until the country elects me as a benign dictator or Netflix films a special," he says. "Either one."

Quinn promises he's done his homework on the Lowcountry. He wants to entertain you and, after all, he says, laughter is the best medicine.

"You talk about serious stuff, but you have to make people laugh or you're not a comedian. It is a gift and it is an honor [to make them laugh]," he says. "Because, if everything does fall apart, at least you were trying â¦"
