Heywood "Woody" Allen is an American actor, writer, director, comedian and playwright, whose career spans more than 50 years.

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, while a UK survey ranked Allen as the third greatest comedian.

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.

He is often identified as part of the New Hollywood wave of filmmakers of the mid-1960s to late '70s.

Allen often stars in his films, typically in the persona he developed as a standup.
