Woody Allen Shot A Moose


Here's a TV clip of Woody Allen's legendary moose routine. A perfect example of Allen's standup -- carefully crafted, strong authorial vision, clearly the work of a guy who wrote 1000 gags a week for a living. It's amazing to me how completely dated this is, yet how fresh and funny it remains. It's dated 1965.
