Ordway Announces Comedian Steven Wright
Academy Award-winning comedian set for one-night-only show on April 7
SAINT PAUL, Minn. (Jan. 25, 2017) — The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts is excited to present Academy Award-winning comedian Steven Wright on Friday, April 7, in the Ordway Concert Hall. Tickets for this special one-night-only show start at $22 and are now available online, by phone at 651-224-4222 or in person at the Ordway ticket office.
Academy Award winning, Emmy- and Grammy-nominated comedian Steven Wright continually sells out theaters internationally with his skewed comedic view of the world. Since his “Tonight Show” debut, which caused such a stir that Johnny Carson invited him back to perform again within a week, the deadpan surrealist master has pushed the comedic boundaries in film, television and on the live stage. With an Oscar-winning short film, a 2014 Emmy nomination as a producer on the hit FX series “Louie,” two Grammy-nominated CDs, three critically acclaimed hour-long specials and countless appearances on TV and in film, Wright is a prototype comedian that others continually try to follow.
