Woody Allen is an American film director, writer, actor, and comedian whose career spans more than six decades.

Described by film critic Roger Ebert as “a treasure of the cinema”, Allen has received numerous accolades and honors, including dozens of Academy Award nominations (16 for Best Original Screenplay alone), winning four (one for Best Director and three for Best Original Screenplay). He has also won nine British Academy Film Awards, The BAFTA Fellowship, and the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award. He was also nominated for a Tony Award (for Bullets Over Broadway) and a Grammy (for his 1964 comedy album, Woody Allen).

The Writers Guild of America named his screenplay for Annie Hall first on its list of the "101 Funniest Screenplays". In 2004 Comedy Central ranked Allen fourth on a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians, while a UK survey ranked Allen the third-greatest comedian.

Woody Allen is also a jazz musician whose band plays New Orleans style jazz at the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan regularly.

Along with Martin Scorsese, Allen created The Film Foundation, a nonprofit film preservation organization that collaborates with film studios to restore prints of old or damaged films.

Allen has also penned thirteen Broadway theater productions and directed six. He has released six comedy albums and is also the author of six books, including his most recent memoir, Apropos of Nothing.

Woody is the best!!! His films make life better. Keep creating, Woody! And, please, stay safe!

Good for you, Lawrence for not yielding to the cancel mobs and having Woody on. Glad to see there's still SOMEONE who's willing to uphold innocent until proven guilty - kind of an important principle.
My favorite Woody Allen quote:

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve immortality through not dying. I don't want to live on in the hearts of my countrymen; I want to live on in my apartment."

Paul Nistor:
I hope he gets to make that movie in France in 2021. Hopefully, a few more afterwards. Let's hope he'll make it to the same age as the legendary Kirk Douglas.
I love the sound of Woody's voice. 🙂
Wow, great interview! I've been a life-long fan of Woody Allen. Although he doesn't have much formal education, and he doesn't consider himself to be an intellectual, I would say that his work says otherwise; only an intelligent and educated person could write like him. I've listened to many interviews and have always been somewhat unsatisfied that the interviewer did not pursue more interesting avenues of conversation. Not here - great job Lawrence and thanks for posting!

A beautiful Sunday morning, a nice large cup of coffee, listening to two very interesting guys chatting casually about life and the universe... what a joy, thank you both.

A suggestion for Lawrence as an interviewer: let your guest talk, don't constantly react to every word in real time, just be quiet and let him/her speak. I love your podcasts, but sometimes it feels like you're just anxiously waiting to talk, not interviewing a guest

Sassan Sadeghi:
Gotta love Woody Allen's intellectual honesty when he refuses to swallow the materialist's way of sugar coating our deepest existential fears and trying to sell them as the meaning of life.
Chuck Deaton
Chuck Deaton:
I was happy to come across this interview. The interviewer interrupted alot and finished Woody's thoughts in order to expedite the answer and move along.
It was interesting hearing Woody talk about how school doesn't teach you anything interesting. In college I took a class where we analyzed romantic comedies so obviously my teacher showed us Annie Hall, and I've been a fan ever since. Probably one of the best class I ever took, and it counted for a literature credit, so instead of Shakespeare I got to watch a Woody Allen film, among other great films.

as a lifetime lover of WA and his films, this interview is pure joy. thank you.
Larry, thank you, thank you! What a brilliant talk!
In conversations I have had about Woody and his films I have always considered him to a great original writer.

47:00 the best piece of wisdom I have heard in a long time "in the end it is a bad deal that we got, and all you can do is to distract yourself"
Lawrence constantly saying, "uh huh..right..mhm..yeah..sure..uh huh..mhm...." So annoying!

Absolutely great interview!
Art and Culture

The tech industry tightened up life to the point that one can’t be a misfit and get a chance like we used to. Mr. Allen if a kid now wouldn’t be allowed to take courses at NYU unless he had adhered to his schooling in a different way, and was a part of the system before college. Love hearing him speak. Thank you for recording this interview and for sharing it.

What a joy to listen to this conversation with wonderful Woodie Allen. Thank you Sir.
To the interviewer: let the people speak for more than two seconds before you interfere with another question or another platitude. Find ways to better handle your anxiety!

Thank you so much for doing this! I have missed Woody's voice and not everyone has enough courage these days to interview him despite all the controversies.
Thank you for this!
What a great way to start 2021. Really enjoyed this conversation. Thank you Mr. Krauss. Thanl you, Mr. Allen.

What a treat this was! Philip Larkin is the author of Aubade, the poem mentioned at the end.
If they don't talk about Sleeper I'll be disappointed.
Great interview but I was surprised at the start when you felt the need to pander to the snowflake Progs
Perfect 2021 gift, thank you.

hilarious interview
I so enjoy listening to Woody Allen. Thank you.
Really nice listening to Woody Allen in an interview because he’s no bs at all. And he’s so self -deprecating without looking to be complemented for it.

Chi Chi:
I could’ve gone on forever, also. What a great interview. I never knew I’d be able to hear a 2 hour interview with Woody Allen with all the great questions, the depth of conversation, the mild disagreements, the laughter, on & on. Made my day!

Good to hear from Woody again...
I saw Part 1 of "Allen vs. Farrow." I don't buy Farrow's story. Everything Woody did relative to Dylan can be easily explained as a father who has bonded with his daughter. Nothing sexual involved.
Patrick Villers
Patrick Villers:
God bless you woody, My favorite joke is the one where you stole hubcaps off cars as they were moving, and My favorite movie is, and I love them all is "Take The Money And Run"

Strangely this will bring hope to some people. It is the only truth laden interview they could of done when discussing the deep questions. I enjoyed listening. Thank you.

Never miss a Woody Allen interview. Really enjoy his POV.
In "Broadway Danny Rose" A theatrical agent represents a parrot that sings, "I gotta be me"

Boris Petrov
Boris Petrov:
Fantastic int’w with two of my favorite people. And — Mia Farrow lied...
PS: And - he took a stand. When Israeli soldiers were ordered and started to brake hand and arm bones of children when captured after throwing a stone — Woody was the only one in Jewish community in the US saying “Common guys, don’t defend BS” or something like that

OMG!! WE LOVE YA WOODY ALLEN!! There are 2 Movies were I Literally Fell Off the Coach Laughing...’LOVE AND DEATH’ & ‘ISHTAR’ if I even Think of Any Scenes from ‘SLEEPER’ I Laugh until I Slowly Stagger Over to My Sofa to Fall Off it ;] The Orgasmatron scene, it’s Brilliant...Who Thinks These Things?? WOODY ALLEN does ;]
Laurel Avery
Laurel Avery:
A magnificent interview. It was a joy to feel like a fly on the wall for this conversation. Hearing Woody Allen in his own voice speak about everything from film to philosophy was an absolute pleasure.
Arthur Schopenhauer once wrote, "life is a sad sorry affair, and I intend to spend my life reflecting on it."
Very interesting right off the bat
Alan Winter
Alan Winter:
I love both Woody and Lawrence, and really love this interview. Also appreciate Woody's tolerance to what Lawrence (inaccurately, imo) describes as cancel culture. Rather than ascribing this to some radical liberal conspiracy to shut down free speech (which it's it not, if it even exists as a conspiracy, which it doesn't), Woody explains that commercial and for-profit ventures have a vested interest in avoiding controversey, and will do so if they have the option.

That's much different than claiming, for example, that Ann Coulter is offering a logical, substantive alternative worldview that warrants careful consideration if only the cancelers would shut up and let her present it.
Duke Allen
Duke Allen:
Nice treat. Lawrence you rock. And make be feel normalish. Ha
Salman Hyder
Salman Hyder:
Love woody. Live the interview. And the new doc IS a one sided blatant hit job.
Woody seems to keep a somewhat dated image of a ‘liberal left’.
