Steven Wright is the 'Other' Stone Cold Steve - stone-faced and dead pan, he's a comedian known for his slightly-skewed commentary, off-beat sense of humor and lethargic, laid-back delivery. He's has been the recipient of several comedy awards as well as an Oscar which he won in 1989 for his short film "The Appointments of Dennis Jennings", a film he co-wrote and starred in.

A Massachusetts native, Steven grew up in Burlington but cut his comedy teeth at a club in Boston where he began performing stand-up shortly after graduating college. His unruly hair and disaffected tone quickly helped carve him a niche position in the world of stand-up comedy. In fact, it was only three years after he first started performing comedy that he was spotted by one of the producers of 'The Tonight Show' and booked a slot to perform on the show, a break that helped his career take off.

"I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she left me before we met."
