About This Event
Academy Award winner Steven Wright is a prototype comedian that many others continually try to follow. Wright got his big break on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.” The king of late night enjoyed the performance so much he invited Steven to appear again the following Thursday, a rarity on “The Tonight Show.” His back-to-back appearances helped put his fledgling career into high gear. The comic soon found himself performing his off-beat routines on “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with David Letterman,” and numerous trips back to “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.” Wright expanded his comedy career to include several comedy albums, and numerous film and television appearances as a performer, director and writer. Wright was the first inductee into The Boston Comedy Hall of Fame in 2008 and was the recipient of The Johnny Carson Comedy Legend Award. Steven is a regular guest with Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers and continues touring the U.S., Canada and overseas.
