Wright This Way

Mark at Witnit has posted (I think) every joke that Steven Wright ever told.

I remember being on a flight from Chicago to Hartford back in the mid-80's. One of the audio selections available was a Wright concert. I could tell that practically the entire plane was listening to it because of the laughter that erupted in all parts of the cabin at exactly the same moments.

Is Wright still performing? It seems to me I haven't heard anything about him in quite some time.

He did a very small bit with Roberto Benigni in Coffee and Cigarettes, but I don't think that was filmed recently. I remember hearing Jarmusch, the director, filmed the vignettes that make up the film over a twelve year period, but I could be wrong.

Yep, he's still performing live. One of the funniest people on the face of the earth, IM(NS)HO.

He also gets the occasional film role and TV guest appearance.
