Steven Wright, a weathered veteran of the joke-slinging biz, uncorks a refreshing cask of caustic laughs during his simultaneously off-putting and engaging live show. The first inductee into the Boston Comedy Hall of Fame, Steven Wright’s countable appearances on film and television have made him a legend in the folklore of spoken absurdity. Known for his signature bray and sense of comic timing that’s tighter than a shrunken turtleneck sweater, Wright has received major accolades that would make his stage persona sigh, including an Academy Award for the short film The Appointments of Dennis Jennings and a duo of Grammy nominations for his albums I Have a Pony and I Still Have a Pony. Adored for three decades for his unique brand of inane, heady comedy that drips with deft wordplay, Steven Wright endears like a baby wrapped in $100 bills.
