If Steven Wright's uncanny revelations about day-to-day life aren't unmistakable, his tall, lanky frame, long face and wiry hair are. Add in Wright's monotone delivery and odd twists and even the most simple of jokes become a comedic masterpiece. Along with touring, his deadpan comedy and outlandish observations continue to make him a frequent guest on the late night talk show circuit.
Extremely successful on network and cable TV, Wright has appeared as a host on "Saturday Night Live," made appearances on Johnny Carson, Jay Leno and David Letterman's shows. Wright now appears on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" as occasional fixture of the show, to help out with the fan mail segment, and has has appeared in many movies, such as "Desperately Seeking Susan," "So I Married an Axe Murderer" and "Half Baked."
In 2006, he produced a new stand-up special, his first in 16 years, called "Steven Wright: When the Leaves Blow Away." The following year he released a follow-up to the successful album "I Have a Pony" titled "I Still Have a Pony," which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. In 2008 he became the first inductee into the Boston Comedy Hall of Fame.
