Deadpan Comic Steven Wright Returns to Treasure Island April 13

Deadpan comic Steven Wright will headline the Treasure Island Theatre Apr. 13 at 9 p.m.

Renowned for his distinctive stand-up comedy, incorporating irony, philosophy, nonsense and delightful lethargic monotone delivery, Wright got his big break on “The Tonight Show” in 1982.  Johnny Carson enjoyed the performance so much that he invited Wright 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.  The comic soon found himself performing on “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with David Letterman,” and numerous trips back to “The Tonight Show.”

Wright expanded his career to include comedy albums, films and television appearances. Both his 1985 debut album, “I Have A Pony,” and 2007 follow up, “I Still Have A Pony,” earned Grammy nominations for Best Comedy Album.  In 1985, Steven starred in his landmark first HBO Special “A Steven Wright Special,” which he followed with “Wicker Chairs and Gravity” in 1990. His third one-hour special, “When The Leaves Blow Away,” premiered on Comedy Central in 2006.

The offbeat comic’s film appearances include “Desperately Seeking Susan,” Mike Meyers’ “So I Married An Axe Murderer,” Oliver Stone’s “Natural Born Killers,” and Nora Ephron’s “Mixed Nuts.” Wright was the voice of the DJ, K-Billy in “Reservoir Dogs,” played a Mountie in “Canadian Bacon,” opposite the late John Candy and had a supporting role in Dave Chappelle’s “Half-Baked.” He won an Academy Award for Best Short Film for “The Appointments of Dennis Jennings,” which he also starred in and co-wrote. Most recently Wright lent his inimitable voice to the upcoming animated film “The Emoji Movie” alongside TJ Miller, James Corden and Patrick Stewart.

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Wright was nominated for an Emmy Award as a producer of the hit FX series, “Louie.” He also guest starred in two episodes of Louie in 2011 and 2015 and can be seen in Louis CK’s critically acclaimed web series “Horace and Pete.”

Tickets are available starting at $50.95, plus taxes and service charges, and can be purchased by calling 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722, or visiting www.treasureisland.com.

Comedian Steven Wright Returns to The Orleans Showroom June 17-18

Steven Wright, the Academy Award-winning and Grammy-nominated comedian known for his trademark satire, absurdist one-liners, monotone voice and deadpan delivery, will return to The Orleans Showroom June 17 and 18.

After launching his comedy career at the age of 23 as a regular performer at Ding Ho’s Comedy Club and Chinese Restaurant in Cambridge, Mass., Wright got his big break and was booked on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson. Following his performance, Wright was invited to return to the show the following week for a rare back-to-back appearance. His new kind of comedy and lackluster voice caught the comedy world’s attention, and he later appeared on “Saturday Night Live” and “Late Night” with David Letterman.

As his fame grew, he starred in two HBO specials – “A Steven Wright Special” and “Wicker Chairs and Gravity.”

In 1985, Wright received a Grammy nomination for his debut album, “I Have a Pony.” Twenty-two years later, he received a second Grammy nomination for its sequel, “I Still Have a Pony.” Following his second nomination, he was the first inductee into the Boston Comedy Hall of Fame.

In 1989, Wright won an Academy Award for Best Short Film for his satiric film, “The Appointments of Dennis Jennings,” which he co-starred in and wrote. Wright has also shown his acting chops in several films, including “So I Married an Axe Murderer,” “Desperately Seeking Susan,” “Half Baked” and “The Swan Princess.”

In the past few years, Wright has teamed up with fellow comedic force Louis C.K. In addition to two guest appearances on the hit TV series “Louie,” Wright has assumed the character “Leon” in the Louis C.K. web series “Horace and Pete.”

Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $29.95 plus taxes and convenience fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.284.7777 or visiting www.orleanscasino.com.
