One of the greatest comedians of all time
10 September 2001 | by (Uptown, Downtown, Sometown) – See all my reviews

Steven Wright is one of the greatest comedians, and the greatest deadpan comedian ever. His style is so unique and timeless, that no matter how much time has passed, his jokes will still be as fresh and as funny as ever. Anyone who doesn't laugh at Steven Wright's deadpan type of humor, is humorless themself.
