Who is Brian “Q” Quinn?
Brian “Q” Quinn was born on March 14, 1976, in Staten Island, New York City, as Brian Michael Quinn in the family of James Quinn and Carol Murphy.

As a child, Quinn attended Monsignor Farrell High School where he participated in various extracurricular activities, with sports and theater being his favorite. Quinn recalls that he was a football enthusiast and an avid fan of Manchester United Football Club.

The Tenderloins have so far participated in several comedy competitions on television and won the NBC show “It’s Your Show”, which won the main prize of $100,000.
