Steven Alexander Wright (born December 6, 1955) is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and film producer.

His accolades include the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film for writing and producing the short film The Appointments of Dennis Jennings (1988) and two Primetime Emmy Awards nominations as a producer of Louie (2010–15).
