Billed as the “Confucius of Comedy” by the New York Post, Academy Award winner and Grammy Award nominee Steven Wright brings his trademark wit, absurdist, one-liners, and monotone voice to the Playhouse. Wright’s ironic, deadpan comedy and bizarre observations continue to earn him regular guest spots on the late night talk show circuit with David Letterman, Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel and Craig Ferguson.

Steven Wright was awarded an Oscar in 1989 for Best Short Live-Action Film for The Appointments of Dennis Jennings, which he co-wrote (with Michael Armstrong) and starred in.
