Woody Allen Performs ‘Midnight in Paris’ as Stand-Up in the 60s

Midnight in Paris
Sony Pictures Classics

If you were a fan of Woody Allen‘s ‘Midnight in Paris’ last year, it might interest you to know that his whimsical comedy about an author suffering writer’s block — and a shrew of a fiancee — who travels back in time to the 20s via a Parisian nightclub (seriously, stay away from the absinthe, kids) wasn’t exactly new material for the writer/director.

Allen was performing ‘Midnight in Paris’ as part of his stand-up act in the 60s. This audio from YouTube features Allen describing a summer of insanity as he hangs out with Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, and Picasso. things get a little tricky when criticism comes into play — those sensitive artist types can be so difficult. As expected, Hemingway punches Allen in the mouth several times.
