Steven Wright's Biography by Steven Wright
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 am doing. The end.
Steven Wright is a prototype comedian that many others continually try to follow. It was in 1982 when Wright got his big break after being booked for his first television appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. The former “King of Late Night” enjoyed Wright’s performance so much, he invited him to appear again within a week … 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 offbeat routines on Saturday Night Live and Late Night with David Letterman along with numerous trips back to The Tonight Show.
