    Alvy Singer 

    An anal-retentive, extremely self-conscious Jewish comedian and the protagonist of the film. Alvy?s quick wit is hilarious and often endearingly self-effacing. He claims his adult life is based on the joke ?I would never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member.? He also claims to be alienated by the ?intellectual? climate of New York City of which he himself is so much a part. Obsessed with death, sex, and anti-Semitism, among other things, Alvy has been seeing a psychoanalyst regularly for fifteen years, with little success. He has a wry, pessimistic outlook on life that informs his actions, especially as pertains to his relationships with women.
    Now THERE’S someone to quote…
