Comedian Steven Wright – “Quote”

Steven Wright has always been a favorite comedian of mine. I am not a big fan of ‘standup’ comics but his sensibility and surreal slant to his routine just struck me the right way. Here is some more information on him.

Steven Alexander Wright (born December 6, 1955) is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and film producer. He is known for his distinctly lethargic voice and slow, deadpan delivery of ironicphilosophical and sometimes nonsensical jokesparaprosdokiansnon sequitursanti-humor, and one-liners with contrived situations.

Wright was ranked as the 15th Greatest Comedian by Rolling Stone in their 2017 list of the 50 Greatest Stand-up Comics.[2] His accolades include the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film for writing and producing the short film The Appointments of Dennis Jennings (1988)[3] and two Primetime Emmy Awards nominations as a producer of Louie (2010–15).[4] He is known for his supporting role as Leon in the Peabody Award-winning tragicomedy web series Horace and Pete.

Here is a nice interview with Steven Wright from 2006 from AV Club
