Comedian, actor, writer and frequent on Craig Ferguson’s show, Steven Wright is known for his distinctly lethargic voice and slow, deadpan delivery of ironic, philosophical and generally brilliant humor. One of the great and original stand-up comedians of his time, Wright peppers his routines with nonsensical jokes, anti-humor, and one-liners with contrived situations. For the most part, he “works clean” and makes his audiences think their way to his punch lines, usually with hilarious result.
The first inductee in the Boston Comedy Hall of Fame, Wright has appeared in more than 25 films and the NY Times recently acknowledged his impact on a plethora of disciples including Demetri Martin, Ben Kronberg Tig Notaro, Flight of the Conchords and Zach Galifianakis. Louis C. K. has cited him as an influence, cast him on “Louie” and made him a consulting producer for his latest season.
