The Wright kind of genius
14 September 2004 | by FunklordMSee all my reviews

Black and White aren't funny, its all those grey in between areas of life that are hilarious. I was lucky enough to catch this short on IFC more than once a few years back. I was so excited the first time I saw it I started every week by combing through the TV guides to see if it was going to be on again so I could tape. My one attempt at taping failed due to pore VHS quality.

But the important part is that I saw it. And highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. If you are able to understand Steven Wright's comedy this is the quintessential experience. Whether screaming to his wife that they should boil the furniture upon her announcement pregnancy, or explaining how life is an interruption from nothingness, Steven Wright is a genius. Fingers crossed I find this on DVD one day.
