Steven Wright has been performing comedy for more than two decades. So it’s amazing he’s only had one album in that time, 1985’s “I Have A Pony.” Wright’s finally delivered a follow-up and delightfully it’s called “I Still Have a Pony.” Nothing like a twenty-plus-year callback.
This track called “Shopping Carts” is woefully undescriptive, as it only applies to the first joke on the track. But really how can you describe the series of devastating one liners? So think of the track titles of a Steven Wright album as auditory landmarks, as in “You have to hear this joke. It’s so funny. I believe it’s somewhere after ‘Shopping Carts.’”
