In 1961, Woody Allen decided to become a stand-up comic and performed before small audiences at clubs in the Greenwich Village section of Manhattan. His next career move took him uptown to Broadway where he wrote such plays as "Don't Drink The Water" and "Play It Again, Sam," both of which enjoyed successful runs and were well-received by the theater-going public.
