I Have a Pony is the debut comedy album by American stand-up comedian Steven Wright, released in 1985. It was recorded at Wolfgang's in San Francisco and Park West in Chicago. I Have a Pony is 40 minutes long and consists entirely of Wright's typical style of one-line jokes.

Despite his ongoing career, it was his only album release for many years: "When I made that album, I noticed that the material on it became so well known that I couldn't really perform it anymore."[2] On September 25, 2007, nearly 22 years later, Wright released a follow-up titled I Still Have a Pony (a CD release of the material from When The Leaves Blow Away).

The album peaked at number 194 on the Billboard 200.[3]
