Steven Wright's hilarious performance I Still Have a Pony delights its enthusiastic live audience. Nominated for a Grammy Award for best comedy album, this show proves its staying power. Wright delivers one-liners with perfect timing in his characteristic deadpan voice. With an ironic and philosophical sense of humor, coupled with his laid-back tone, Wright has earned a cult-like following. His jokes take on everything from the New Testament to Santa Claus to the universe to Wright's ex-girlfriends. His delivery may be flat, but the jokes never are.
After almost 25 years in the making, the most rumored comedy album is finally hitting the streets. As the elder statesman of bizarre one liners, Wright has had a decades long career creating the smartest, surrealist, oddball comedy out there, delivered in his characteristic deadpan. His first album,

I think of Steven Wright as a genius comedy writer like Woody Allen when Allen performed standup comedy. Only instead of teller longer stories, Wright is briefer and packs in a lot more punch lines. I like the way he takes a new view of common words and adds a funny new twist and way to interpret them.
My preference for a good story is something totally unusual and not run of the mill stuff. Give me something I haven't heard before.
If you love quirky humor this is your download. This isn't your average airline, family, everyday situation type of comedy, this is stuff you probably never have thought about but once it's said you go "Yeah!" while laughing your ass off! You won't find this humor anywhere else. Wright is unique in his perspectives. Get this, you won't be disappointed. Or at least give the sample a try.
Steven Wright once again proved he is the Salvador Dali of stand-up comedy. Wright's deadpan delivery is right-on, having been honed by decades of one-line, high-concept, non-sequitors. Wright's mind is a twisted Mobius strip of concept and experience, and following his narratives will leave you similarly twisted and laughing out loud.
This performance is, as the title implies, very much a continuance of his previous body of work; nothing new here. If you loved Wright's previous material, you'll love this, too; some may feel disappointed as if it all had been heard before. If you *don't* like Steven Wright, why are you even reading this?
Steven Wright still has a pony, and still has a lock on my funny bone.
Wondered over and over if they paid to layover a laugh track. Normally Steven Wright is great, but I wasted money on this. If it was free, it still might be a waste of time.
An avid reader, who also loves to listen.
Wrigth has such a dry humor about him but it for him, considering his voice and his laid back style, it couldn't work any better! Two thumbs up for anyone who likes to laugh....
If you have never listened to this or the first "still have a pony" you are in for a treat, you will listen to it over and over again
