Comedian Steven Wright is a man of few words. Fortunately for us, they're funny.
If you like your humor understated and your delivery of the deadpan variety, be sure to catch Wright and all his frizzy-haired, monotonous genius Sunday, Oct. 21 at 8 p.m. when he performs at the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts ($49).
Wright is a master of the one-liner. He who practices the old pause in the punchline. His jokes spill out of his mouth almost as an afterthought, and he knows when to shut up and let it sink in. No 'splaining needed.
Some of his gems include:
"I went to a tourist information booth and said, 'Tell me about some people who were here last year.'"
"I spilled spot remover on my dog and now he's gone."
"I went to a place to eat. It said 'breakfast at any time.' So I ordered French toast during the Renaissance."
All right, all right, I won't share them all here. Want more? Get to the Arkley on Sunday and check out Dev Richards' interview with Wright at www.northcoastjournal.com right now.
Stay calm and joke on.
