“I Wound Up a Comedian”



I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member.

I was watching Annie Hall for the umpteenth time and that’s when I was hit by a strong desire (yes, yet again) to be more like Woody Allen‘s character, Alvy Singer. Agreed he’s not exactly the epitome of male perfection but there’s something about him in spite of his neurotic mannerisms and sometimes unnecessarily lengthy expositions that make him something of a role model.

There is this scene where he expresses his wariness of God men and religion when he exclaims to Diane Keaton’s character,

Look! There’s God coming out of the men’s room!

Setting aside his witty yet profound musings on every aspect of culture, he is also an embodiment of childish hopefulness in a sea of cynicism. His character always maintains the middle ground, not too much of an intellectual yet has more going on upstairs than the average person.

Now if only I could find a girl more like Diane Keaton

    FINALLY I ordered Manhattan again 🙂 Just dropped by to tell you this. Will let you know how it went when it arrives.

  3. @Ruhi After Manhattan, do watch Annie Hall (if you haven’t already). Both are pretty damn amazing!
