“I was born. When I was 23 I started telling jokes. Then I started going on television and doing films. That’s still what I’m doing. The end.”
With a biography that’s reflective of his distinctly lethargic voice, slow delivery, and one-liners, Steven Wright is an iconic comedian, actor, and writer. He has appeared in films such as Desperately Seeking Susan, Canadian Bacon, and Coffee and Cigarettes, and also lent his voice to a collection of films including Reservoir Dogs as the voice of DJ K-Billy. Wright has been a regular guest with Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel among others, and continues to tour internationally.
