KW Comedy Festival Opening Gala

featuring Steven Wright

Centre In The Square

The Centre is pleased to partner with the Kitchener-Waterloo Comedy Festival to present the iconic stand-up comedian Steven Wright at this year’s Comedy Festival Gala. Wright's unbelievably dry sense of humor and thought-provoking, dead-pan one-liners considered revolutionary by some have made him an audience favourite since his first break back in 1982.

The Academy Award-winning writer, director and comedian has been seen in numerous television shows including two HBO specials (A Steven Wright Special, Wicker Chairs and Gravity), featured in films like Desperately Seeking Susan, Mike Myers andCanadian Bacon (opposite John Candy) and has received two Grammy nominations for his ground-breaking comedy albums I Have A Pony and I Still Have A Pony.

The event will be hosted by Jon Dore and features Elvira Kurt, Gilson Lubin, Graham Chittenden, Erica Sigurdson and Landry.
