Steven Wright (here is some of his material ) was an A-list comedian in the 80's and early 90's. Dozens of Tonight Show appearances (back when that actually meant something). He was a complete original and I doubt anyone could ever match him. He would come on TV and blow your mind ... never had to curse, either. Which was a rarity among comics during this time.
I just followed your link and laughed til I cried. Genius! I can't believe I never heard of him.
