Steven Wright

Sleepy, wry, deadpan, philosophical, and funny, Steven Wright is a comedian, actor, and writer who won the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album in 1985 for his debut effort, I Have a Pony. Born just outside Boston, Wright attended Emerson College. After graduation in 1978, he combined the city's love of both elevated thinking and working-class attitudes and created a unique standup routine. He became the breakout comedian at Boston's legendary Ding Ho Comedy Club (a Chinese restaurant by day, comedy club by night) where in 1982, executive producer Peter Lassally saw his act and invited Wright to appear on The Tonight Show. A hit with both host Johnny Carson and the audience, Wright was invited back to The Tonight Show just a week later. In 1985, his HBO special I Have a Pony became an instant hit while its accompanying album, released on Warner Bros., won the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album.

Playing a dentist in the 1985 film Desperately Seeking Susan kicked-off his acting career, while 1988 saw Wright co-write and star in The Appointments of Dennis Jennings, winner of the Academy Award for Live Action Short Film at the 61st Academy Awards. His second HBO special, Wicker Chairs and Gravity, arrived in 1991, then in 1992 he began a recurring role on the television sitcom Mad About You. In 1999, he wrote, directed, and starred in the short film One Soldier, then in 2006 he released his television comedy special When the Leaves Blow Away, this time on the Comedy Central cable network. The special was released on album a year later as I Still Have a Pony. He joined the televised talk show The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson as regular guest in 2009, helping the host sift through viewer mail. In 2011, he joined the cast of Louis C.K.'s sitcom Louie, playing himself, a role he reprised from the TV show The Larry Sanders Show (1994), along with the films Half Baked (1998) and Coffee and Cigarettes (2003). ~ David Jeffries, Rovi

Whoever wrote this bio is an idiot with No taste.

The reason Steven Wright's bio is crappy and short is because this Larry Lapka guy is a moron. He's done other bios for other brilliant comedians like Sam Kinison and they were just as terrible as Wright's. Lapka needs to fired ASAP. Idk if he gets paid for these crappy bios but I hope not. Pandora should hire me to make these bios

Comics and other artists with 1% of Wright's talent have received far better bios. This is a pathetic bio -- very disappointed in Pandora here.

Bio is a little to short, but his monotone and dry humor does not appeal to all people.

Seems like the bio writer doesn't get his humor. He's right though, Steven Wrights humor isn't for everyone, just thoses that are intelligent enough to understand it. Larry Lapka does not possess the required intelligence .

What kind of bio is this? It's like, three sentences. The average comedian bio is like, three paragraphs.

I was wondering the same thing. The bio writer should keep his opinions to himself, or at least mask them better.

Agreed, terrible bio. Love his dry humor, not for everyone, but I think he is a great comedian, one of a kind! Probably one of the few comedians that can do a show without swearing every other word!!!

If you can't hear me its because i'm in parentheses. . .

I worked at Ding Ho in Cambridge. Steven started at the club. He has let the whole fame thing go to his head.

I came here to comment but apparently everyone already has stated, that bio is absolute rubbish. Steven Wright is the KING of one-liners and has developed a delivery method that can only be achieved by him.

Is this a bio or an opinion? Does no justice to the brilliance of Steven Wright.

Their is no heir or heir apparent to Bob Newhart. And even if i'm wrong and one comes along. It's definitely not this guy. I'm not saying he's not good but the comparison is ridiculous.
Report as inappropriate
This has got to be the most uninformativ e and useless bio I have seen. Steven Wright is simply brilliant, and one of a kind. Bob Newhart? really? Ironically, Pandora doesn't even associate Bob Newharts comedy with Steven Wright as a seed. This implies that even by Pandora's standards this is useless tripe. Nice.

Pandora is good in spots, but the insufficient biased bios, incorrect lyrics, reloading issues, missing albums, and miscategoriz a t i o n s of songs aren't for everyone's taste. - Steven Wright

Check out Sam Kinison's biography if you would like to see another one of Lapka's gems. I just hope he reads the comment board...

The guy who wrote the bio says on his LinkedIn profile I have been a professional writer, in one capacity or another, for the past 30 years or so. I have also done a lot of freelance writing and proofreading . He should stick to proofreading .

Yep. This bio is lousy. The comedian, on the other hand, is hilarious and brilliant.

Steven Wright is a great artist. He is himself and is still relevant. Keeps everyone giggling.
