Steven Wright at bergenPAC

Thursday, October 5, 2017

Steven Wright is a stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and an Oscar-winning film producer. He is known for his distinctly lethargic voice and slow, deadpan delivery of ironic, philosophical, and sometimes nonsense jokes, paraprosdokians, non sequiturs, anti-humor, and one-liners with contrived situations. Wright was ranked as the twenty-third greatest comedian by Comedy Central in a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comics. He was awarded the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film for his 1988 short film The Appointments of Dennis Jennings. In 2006 Wright produced his first stand-up special in 16 years, Steven Wright: When the Leaves Blow Away, aired on Comedy Central. In 2017 Wright released his second album, I Still Have a Pony and a CD release of the material from When The Leaves Blow Away. It was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album.
