35 Inspirational Steven Wright Quotes On Success

Steven Alexander Wright is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and film producer. He is known for his distinctly lethargic voice and slow, deadpan delivery of ironic, philosophical and sometimes nonsensical jokes, paraprosdokians, non sequiturs, anti-humor, and one-liners with contrived situations. Wright was ranked as the 15th Greatest Comedian by Rolling Stone in their 2017 list of the 50 Greatest Stand-up Comics. His accolades include the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film for starring, writing and producing the short film The Appointments of Dennis Jennings (1988) and two Primetime Emmy Awards nominations as a producer of Louie (2010–15). He is known for his supporting role as Leon in the Peabody Award-winning tragicomedy web series Horace and Pete. Wright was born at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and grew up in Burlington, Massachusetts, one of four children of Lucille “Dolly” (née Lomano) and Alexander K. Wright. He was raised as a Roman Catholic. His mother was Italian-American, and his father of Scottish descent. Wright’s father worked as an electronics technician who “tested a lot of stuff” for NASA during the Apollo spacecraft program. When that program ended, he worked as a truck driver. Wright attended Middlesex Community College in Bedford, Massachusetts, for two years to earn his associate’s degree, then continued his education at Emerson College.
