Steven Wright (born December 6, 1955) is an American actor, writer and stand-up comedian from New York, New York. He is known for his slow, deadpan, monotone delivery of ironic, witty and sometimes confusing jokes and one liners.
There are numerous lists of jokes attributed to Wright circulating on the internet, sometimes of dubious provenance. Wright has stated that "someone showed me a site, and half of it that said I wrote it, I didn't write. Recently, I saw one, and I didn't write any of it. What's disturbing is that with a few of these jokes, I wish I had thought of them. A giant amount of them, I'm embarrassed that people think I thought of them, because some are really bad."
