Steven Wright

When: Sat., Sept. 17, 8 p.m. 2016

Academy Award winner Steven Wright is a prototype comedian that many others continually try to follow. This comedian, actor and writer is known for his distinctly lethargic voice and slow, deadpan delivery of ironic, philosophical, and sometimes nonsensical jokes. Steven got his big break with an appearance on the The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1982. 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.

Price: $49, $40, $35
