Steven Wright - A Comedy Original
- Sep 17, 2016
Academy Award winner Steven Wright is a prototype comedian that many others continually try to follow. This comedian, actor and writer is known for his distinctly lethargic voice and slow, deadpan delivery of ironic, philosophical, and sometimes nonsensical jokes.
Steven got his big break with an appearance on the The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1982. The king of late night enjoyed the performance so much he invited Steven to appear again the following Thursday, a rarity on The Tonight Show. His back-to-back appearances helped put his fledgling career into high gear.
Steven has since expanded his comedy career to include comedy albums, film and television appearances, including an Academy Award for Best Short Film for The Appointments of Dennis Jennings in which he starred and co-wrote.
