Heywood "Woody" Allen (born Allan Stewart Konigsberg; December 1, 1935)[1] is an American director, writer, actor, and comedian whose career spans more than six decades. He began his career as a comedy writer in the 1950s, writing jokes and scripts for television and publishing several books of short humor pieces. In the early 1960s, he performed as a stand-up comedian, emphasizing monologues rather than traditional jokes, where he developed the persona of an insecure, intellectual, fretful nebbish, which he maintains is quite different from his real-life personality.[2] In 2004 Comedy Central ranked Allen fourth on a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians,[3][4] while a UK survey ranked Allen the third-greatest comedian.[5] By the mid-1960s Allen was writing and directing films, first specializing in slapstick comedies before moving into dramatic material influenced by European art cinema during the 1970s, and alternating between comedies and dramas to the present.
