Personal Quote:

[To Stu Hample on developing the comic strip "Inside Woody Allen"] Need more character engagement--instead of jokes being free-floating, they must be jokes on the way to character development. Jokes are like the decorations on the Christmas tree--but it's a beautiful tree you need to start with. Only then can you hang baubles on it. (Sorry for the disgusting metaphor.) See more »

Trivia:

After completing his first musical, Everyone Says I Love You (1996), he stated that he'd like to do another in the future with an all-original score. Since making that statement, however, nothing has yet materialized. See more »

Trademark:

A lot of his movies feature at least one character who is a writer. This is often Woody himself. See more »

Star Sign:

Sagittarius
