On 1st December 2012, Woody Allen turns 77. To celebrate, we tried to find the earliest video of Woody Allen we could find on YouTube. We think it could be this one – Woody Allen performing a stand-up set on the Jack Paar Show – 14th December 1962 – almost 50 years ago.
It’s amazing how little his mannerisms have changed. His delivery that was such a delight in this year’s To Rome With Love was there back in 1962. His jokes are still sweet, absurd and weird. Some of the references though, like to former Candid Camera host Albert Funt, are utterly dated.
Happy Birthday Mr Allen. Here’s to 77 more.
