Comic Stephen Wright plays River Rock
Just single tickets were still available this week for an upcoming comedy show in Richmond starring Stephen Wright.
Wright is known for his monotone voice and slow, deadpan delivery of offbeat jokes. The comedian got his big break in 1982 after being booked for his first TV appearance on The Tonight Show. Johnny Carson enjoyed Wright's performance so much, he invited him to appear again a week later.
The rare feat helped put his fledgling career into high gear.
Wright performs Saturday, Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. at River Rock Show Theatre. Tickets, $49.50 to $59.50 (plus fees), at ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000
