Known for his unique style and deadpan delivery, Steven Wright has earned his status as a legendary comic. Consistently voted a top comedian by his peers, Steven Wright has influenced entire generations of stand-up stars, including renowned stand-up comedian Mitch Hedberg.

Academy Award winner Steven Wright is a prototype comedian that many others continually try to follow. Wright got his big break and was booked for his first “Tonight Show” appearance on Friday, August 6, 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. The comic soon found himself performing his off-beat routines on “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with David Letterman,” and numerous trips back to “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.”

Wright expanded his comedy career to include comedy albums, film, and television appearances.  His 1985 debut album, I Have A Pony, earned him a Grammy nomination. In 1985, Steven starred in his first HBO Special “A Steven Wright Special.” In 1989, Steven was honored with an Academy Award for Best Short Film for his film entitled “The Appointments of Dennis Jennings” in which he starred and co-wrote. In September of 1990, Steven starred in his second stand-up special for HBO called “Wicker Chairs and Gravity.”

Steven has been seen in numerous films including Desperately Seeking Susan, So I Married An Axe MurdererNatural Born Killers, and Mixed Nuts. Steven was the voice of the DJ, K-Billy in Reservoir Dogs, and starred with John Cleese and Jack Palance in New Line’s animated film, The Swan Princess as the voice of Speed, the turtle. Steve also appeared as a sitcom actor in MGM’s Speechless with Harry Shearer, and as a Mountie in the MGM release Canadian Bacon, opposite the late John Candy.
