The One and Only Steven Wright…Is He
Comedian Steven Wright
recently concluded a run at the fabulous Orleans Hotel and Casino.
Don’t miss him when he returns or comes to your hometown. He walks
out onto the stage sporting simple jeans, a T-shirt and jacket, a
beard, and stands there for an hour and a half, making the audience
of his sold-out show laugh until they cry. I was almost glad to see
the show end because I was laughing so hard that it hurt. I almost
walked out to rest for a second, but I couldn’t do it. After all,
laughing is healthy and, if that is true, Steven Wright will keep
you very healthy!
Readers, I can’t tell you what I would
give to spend a day exploring the inside of this man’s mind. You
really gotta give this funny man a lot of credit, if for no other
reason than his unique approach to comedy. His humor is monotone,
dry, understated, silly, sarcastic, smart, and there is absolutely
NO ONE like him. He is so original that no other comic could
possibly steal his comedy material, even if they tried.
Alexander Wright (born December 6, 1955) is an Academy Award-winning
stand-up comedian, actor, and writer from Burlington, Massachusetts.
Steven is best known for his slow, deadpan, delivery of ironic,
witty, deeply philosophical and sometimes confusing jokes and
His comic timing is uncanny. His ability to turn
any and everything into comedy is nothing short of genius. He makes
everyday mundane things into something to laugh at right down to the
lint in your dryer. In my opinion, he is the most under-rated comic
out there. I warn you, however, that it does take a few beats to get
into his rhythm and his monotone delivery. Wright crams five hours
of comedy into one hour. While in his audience, YOU MUST THINK FAST
AND KEEP UP! He leaves very little time for laughter before throwing
another joke at you. Don’t ask the person next to you, “What did he
say?” or you will miss the next five jokes!
What I find most
miraculous about Steven is how he manages to memorize his act. Most
comics have topics that lead into the next topic or they use notes.
HIS comedy routine is so random and no joke connects to the next. I
find this astonishing alone. In his act, Steven also plays guitar to
lyrics that he wrote himself.
He is a rare breed and his
humor is too funny to explain. Well, let me give it a try….For
“My problem is I was reincarnated without being
alive the first time.”
“The end of the cold war started
“Why are pictures square if the camera lens
“I finally figured out what to say on my
“I think it’s wrong that only one
company makes the game Monopoly.”
“I was married to a trophy
wife, but apparently it wasn’t first place.”
matter what temperature a room is, it’s always room temperature.”
The audience loved Steven and screamed out for more at the
end of his show. Steven Wright is a true comedy star. He is one of a
kind! GO SEE THIS VERY FUNNY, INTELLIGENT, INTROSPECTIVE, VERY
STRANGE GUY and enjoy a thousand more of these jokes for
