Steven Wright's Sayings -
Researched by Alan Turnham

There are at least two famous people called Steve Wright. Alan Turnham has unearthed quotes by the American Comedian, (not the British Radio 2 Presenter) To get the most from these one-liners, you have to imagine Steve's deadpan delivery.

These quotes are very much to the point.It's so clever of comedians that they know exactly where to find the most illogical items in expressions.
