Comedian Steven Wright is coming to Minnesota


In a rare, one-night-only appearance, Steven Wright is coming to the Ordway.

The talented standup, actor, and writer got his big break in the '80s on The Tonight Show. Since then, he's gone on to win an Academy Award for short film, has been nominated for an Emmy for his work on Louis CK's Louie, and has received two Grammy noms for comedy CDs.

Wright is known for his deadpan and lethargic speaking style, as well as his irreverent punchlines.

Tickets for the show, which will be April 7 at the Ordway in St. Paul, start at a reasonable $22 and are on sale now. Check out for more info, or call the box office at 651-224-4222.
