✎ He worked 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, Allen began performing as a stand-up comedian, emphasizing monologues rather than traditional jokes.
As a comedian, he developed the persona of an insecure, intellectual, fretful nebbish, which he maintains is quite different from his real-life personality. In 2004, Comedy Central ranked Allen in fourth place on a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians.
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. He is often identified as part of the New Hollywood wave of filmmakers of the mid-1960s to late 1970s.
Allen often stars in his films, typically in the persona he developed as a standup. He has won four Academy Awards: three for Best Original Screenplay and one for Best Director (Annie Hall).
He also garnered nine British Academy Film Awards. His screenplay for Annie Hall was named the funniest screenplay by the Writers Guild of America in its list of the “101 Funniest Screenplays.”

Woody Allen is one of the final living legends of comedy directors. Judd Appatow is another.

Thanks Evan! One of my favorite directors of all time! He’s so funny, deep and full of imagination. The rule I liked the best was “define success for yourself”, because nowadays it’s so easy to fall in the trap of assumption according to which success is mandatory linked with money or fame for instance. Rather, and to me, success is a matter of subjectivity, personal perception of the things we did and the goals we achieved. The most important thing is to feel great and peaceful with ourself, to be proud of our work and to do our best.

At 784K subscribers you should buy yourself a microphone lavalier. Really, it will make a huge difference because now you sound horrible in intros.
