Woody Allen, who cut his teeth in the early '60s in New York as a stand-up, is considering a return to the mic.

Comedian Andrew Dice Clay, who co-stars in Allen's latest film, Blue Jasmine, says the two powwowed about the possibility on set. "We got into the whole conversation about how he started, and then we talked about where I started, and it really got his juices going again," Clay told THR at the New York premiere July 22.

"I hope he does it," said Clay. "I think he should do Radio City with me, personally."
