A comedian’s comedian through and through, stand up veteran Steven Wright will take the stage at the Patchogue Theatre on June 23 for a special charity show. His deadpan humor is as iconic and consistent a trait as any comedian has ever presented on stage, and his monotone delivery made him perfect for his part as the radio DJ in Reservoir Dogs, essentially the “voice” of our favorite Tarentino flick (even if it is basically a remake/ripoff of the last 20 minutes of City on Fire).
The event is presented by the Rotary Club of Patchogue in conjunction with Island Outreach Foundation and proceeds will benefit Brookhaven Memorial Hospital and other local charities. According the theatre, “All ticket proceeds to directly benefit Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center and more than 20 local charities, including the Boys and Girls Club, The Patchogue Y, all 5 local food pantries, Salvation Army Patchogue, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, and a $12,000 scholarship program at Patchogue-Medford High School.” The Rotary will also hold its annual Steak & Cigar dinner at Pera Bell Food Bar at 5 p.m. before the show. We just hope they’ll play some K-Billy’s Super Sounds of the 70s.
