With his longtime partner Jack Rollins, Charles H Joffe founded a management-production office that had a client list including Ted Bessell, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Tom Poston and David Letterman. But Joffe and Rollins found their biggest success in collaboration with writer- director-actor Woody Allen. Beginning with Allen's 1966 play "Don't Drink the Water" which they co-produced (with famed impresario David Merrick) on Broadway and Allen's feature directorial effort "Take the Money and Run" (1969), Joffe and Rollins have served as producers or executive producers on every Allen film.Joffe has also occasionally produced or executive produced other comedies including 1979's "The House of God" (which never received a full theatrical release) and Steve Gordon's screwball comedy "Arthur" (1981). He also served as an executive producer on Martin Ritt's McCarthy-era drama "The Front" (1976), that featured Woody Allen in a dramatic role.
