Amazon.co.uk Review

Compiled from Woody Allen's legendary standup routines of the mid 1960s, Standup Comic is an absolute necessity for any acolyte of the man's solid work from his Casino Royale and New Yorker phase.

"Here's a good example of oral contraception. I asked a girl to go to bed with me, and she said 'No.'"

Between a youthful stint as a TV gag man and his groundbreaking films of the 1970s, Allen tried his hand at standup. He was, predictably, a success. Taken from nightclub dates in 1964, 65 and 68, Standup Comic shows how stylistically similar he was to contemporaries like Bill Cosby but also how his absurd flights of imagination made him utterly unique.

"I took a puff of the wrong cigarette at a fraternity dance once. The cops had to come and get me. I broke two teeth trying to give a hickey to the Statue of Liberty."

Now that he's a junior-varsity Ingmar Bergman, it's easy to forget that Allen's first public face was that of a world-class shlub--a rumpled redhead who shared stories of analysis, sexual frustration and failure. The long-form tales featured on Standup Comic (including Allen's famous bit featuring a moose and a cocktail party) provide plenty of laughs as well as an early glimpse at this protean comic genius. --Mike Gerber

This CD is a compilation of the 3 LP's Allen released in the 1960's. Having been a very succesful and highly-paid television-writer, Allen took to being a lowly-paid (at first) stand-up comedian. Anyone who is familiar with Woody Allen's comedy movies will instantly recognize his style of humor on this disc. Psychiatry, his disastrous relationships with women, his relatives, etc. are his favourite topics, and they are treated with the typical Allenesque point-of-view, which somehow manages to put you on the wrong foot every single time. Some of the jokes on this album later turned up in his movies. This CD actually doesn't include all the material that was available on the original LP's, but what it lacks in quantity, it more than makes up for in quality, and, like it or not, this is all we're ever going to get. Somehow I don't think he'll ever go back to standup. It's our loss.

Far from limiting himself to movie roles and directing, Allen has a rich past of musicality and stand-up, as well as fiction writing (have you read his Complete Prose?).
This is a CD of some fantastic early material, featuring the wonderful and individual style of comedy that is unmistakable Allen: he's abstract, fantastic, imaginative, creative and caustic all at once.
This is a real treat to anyone interested in outlandish and frivolous comedy - please sample it, it's simply brilliant.

"I want to have a quick word about oral contraception. I was involved in a classic example of oral contraception a few weeks ago. I asked a girl to go to bed with me, and she said no." Woody Allen only ever released three albums, all contained here, but he changed the face of comedy forever. Classic skits such as The Moose and Mechanical Objects makes this a must have.

I bought this album off the back of his films and i was expecting it to be good but it exceeded my expectations. Some great srrueal anecdotes. You can really see how he inspired some other great comedians. (Emo Philips for example.)

Buy this CD, and then listen to it in private. If you put it on your ipod/ music player, like I did, you will end up embarrassing yourself as you crack up with laughter on trains, underground networks and airport lounges. Utter genius at work. Enjoy a man with a really strange view of the world. Strange but very, very funny. Laugh out loud funny!

As a big fan of Woody Allens movies I was always curious how his stand-up comedy sets have been. I really didn't think of that they have been recorded! I got this CD as a present from a dear friend and it was a great choice, a nice surprise and a present from the heart. This is a collection of the sixties, the time before his first bigger movies, but still you can detect his qualities and humour already then! I listened it together with my friends and it was really hilarious!

This is a very funny CD, I first heard it as a tape cassette 20 years ago and lost it in a house move. It has everything you would expect: religion, sex, sport and the Klu Klux Klan with a moose playing a walk on part at a fancy dress party. Wonderful material with great timing and delivery. Classic comedy.

Woody Allen is most famous for his brilliant films both as an actor and a director.
But in his early days he was a superb stand up comedian. In my view he is the best stand up of all time,
This is a compilation of his finest sets, recorded before live audiences in the early sixties.
Utterly brilliant although some of the political references are of the time and may not make sense to younger generations
without explanation.
I still laugh out loud, even when hearing this for the umpteenth time.
A comedy masterclass from a genius.
