I Have a Pony by Steven Wright on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

Comedy in the ’80s was loud, crass, and manic—but not Steven Wright’s. His creaking delivery, uncomfortable gaps of silence, and neurotic peculiarities make 1985’s I Have a Pony a captivating oddity. Part stand-up, part psychedelic philosopher, the Bostonian uses the one-liner to crack open reality and expose the endless absurdities hidden inside. Some are short (“A lot of people are afraid of heights; not me—I’m afraid of widths”), and others are even shorter (“I lost a buttonhole”). He's a true original.
