Steven Wright at The Paramount
This Academy-award winning comedian (that’s right, look it up) has had a career spanning 30 years, with his most recent gig as a consulting producer for Louie. With his trademark deadpan, monotone delivery, he’ll offer up witty one-liner observations like, “I went to a restaurant that serves ‘breakfast at any time.’ So I ordered French toast during the Renaissance.”
