Editorial Reviews

Steven Wright, the Confucius of
Comedy, recorded his first album, I
Have A Pony, in 1985. That Grammy -
nominated album, along with an HBO
special the following year, established Wright as one of the most inventive, peculiar and admired comedians of our era. Surreal and cerebral, his languid voice and deadpan delivery of ironic, witty and sometimes even deeply philosophical one-liners made him a unique and unforgettable performer. Now that classic, long unavailable album and that TV special are issued for the first time in a CD+DVD set that will introduce a new generation to a truly brilliant comic.

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get much funnier than this! December 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Is it the voice or the content of the jokes? Either way, this is one hillarious CD. The deadpan nature of his delivery turns incredibly simple jokes into some of the most fresh and funny material you'll ever hear.
I first bought the tape nearly ten years ago, and laughed hysterically then. Now, a decade later, the material is still as relevant and funny as ever. The key to good comedy is making the material relevant to the audience, by discussing subject matter to which everyone can relate. Steven Wright finds a way to do this with some of the the most outlandish subject matter you'll ever hear, (ie. elevators in the middle of the desert, poison ivy of the brain, a pony in his apartment) - all the while making you think "It's so simple - why didn't I think of that?"
With the exception of a few sexual references (nothing explicit) - the material is very clean. No swearing at all!
This is not the kind of comedy CD you'll listen to once, then put aside and forget about. There are so many jokes, you could never remember all of them - so every listen is almost like the first. This CD is well worth the purchase.

"Rachel got poison ivy on her brain. The only way she can scratch it is to think about sandpaper."
"I bought some batteries, but they weren't included."
"I parked in a tow-away zone, and when I got back the entire area was gone."
"I lost a buttonhole."
"Right now I'm having amnesia and deja-vu at the same time."
"I have an enormous sea-shell collection. I keep it scattered on beaches all over the world. Perhaps you've seen it."
"I want to get a tattoo over my entire body of myself, only an inch taller."
"But the sign says 'Open 24 Hours.'" "Not in a row."
"You know when you're leaning back in a chair and then you lean way back and you're just on two legs and then you lean just a little far and you almost fall but at the last minute you catch yourself? I feel like that all the time."
IMPORT? This isn't available in the U.S. anymore! And yet Adam Sandler is a megastar...
And another thing: why doesn't Amazon have a "comedy" category under the CD/tape section?

5.0 out of 5 stars Steven Wright has abilities no one else posesses. October 10, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Steven Wrights comedy is so cerebral that any person, with a frontal lobe, should appreciate it. With classic jokes like, " Last week I spilled spot remover on my dog..... Now I can't find him" and "I have the ability to levetate birds... but no one cares," everyone in the listening radius should be rolling on the ground. Steven Wright is a master of dead-pan and no one will ever superceed his prowess. Truly a perfect album for anyone who loves to laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic comedy!!! September 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Steven Wright is a hilarious comedian with a bland, straight delivery that might not be for everybody. But if you are a Steven Wright fan, this is the only comedy cd that he has released. This CD is old, probably 20 years old, so some of the stuff may be a bit dates, but it is still hilarious. Wright has gone on to do some acting and has appeared on talk shows. There are also many jokes attributed to Wright on the internet. Many of those sound like they could be, but really aren't. For true steven wright comedy, check out this CD. While there may be some sexual innuendo in a few jokes, the humor is really clean and not any bad language that I can remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Timeless Comedic Genius January 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Steven Wright has a unique style, that makes him stand out from many of the young and hip comics currently on the scene. He doesn't cuss, talk about sex, attack celebs, play into stereotypes, and play 3rd rate guitar to entertain. His wit is his talent, and his genius encourages You to think, and enjoy his clever observations, questions, ponderings, and line liners. With the exception of Groucho Marx, I have never seen a comic more widely quoted than Steven Wright. There will never be a movie like "Man On The Moon" to celebrate his genius, but his material, unlike many of today's comics, will stand the test of time.

I tried to get a few quotes from this CD to show you just how good it is, problem is, I'd end up reciting the entire album ! It's simply unbelievable how hilariously funny this CD is ! Truly unique and original ! Two things bother me, though ! ONE : Why do Americans have to buy this album as in import from Australia ? Shame on whoever is responsible for not releasing this album in the USA ! Thank you, Australia ! TWO : Why doesn't Steven Wright make more albums ? He's an absolute master of comedy !

5.0 out of 5 stars Found it cheaper. October 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I haven't actually ordered it yet, but I did notice that Steven Wright's website has a store with this on it, presumably not the import, for $12.99. google for Steven Wright should give you [...] There's some DVD's there as well.

UPDATE - Received this last Christmas. Very funny, if you like his style of humor. My advice is to watch the video stream on stevenwright.com for a sample of his style of humor. If you like that, there's 40 minutes of similar jokes on the CD. If you can't stream video for some reason, a google search for "Steven Wright jokes" should turn up some of the one-liners, although I often find them to be misquoted.
