Ladies and gentlemen... Steven Wright.
I got a postcard from my friend George, it was a satellite picture of the entire Earth. On the back he wrote, "Wish you were here".

If you enjoy the more well-known (late) comic Mitch Hedberg, you'll love Steven Wright. He did everything Hedberg did, only he did it first. (Which isn't to take any of Hedberg's talent away from him - he was a great talent, too.) Wright's "I Have a Pony" is one of the best comedy albums of all-time. It's no surprise that he hasn't released another album since - it's gotta be hard to come up with so many amazing one-liners. Some of the psychological stuff will seriously screw up your mind. "I put my instant coffee in a microwave -- I nearly went back in time," as another user here on IMDb quotes him as saying in their review.
One of my favorites -- "I was walking in the woods all by myself. A tree fell down right in front of me and I didn't hear a thing." "Steven Wright Live" is mostly stuff from the "I Have a Pony" album. It's sixty minutes of pure intellectual comedy that will satisfy anyone looking to laugh themselves silly.
