David Mamet’s love for Chicago shows up all the time in his works, including his new novel which is called, yup, Chicago. The prolific playwright-director-novelist-screenwriter talks with Marc about his Chicago roots and how he learned a lot about drama by watching the improv actors at Second City. They also talk about David’s theories on acting (very few are good at it), William H. Macy (one of the very few), Eugene O’Neill (he wasn’t that great), Shakespeare (he was), and marriage (you can take a mulligan on the first one). This episode is sponsored by Ricky Gervais: Humanity on Netflix, Spotify, Amazon Music, and IFC Films’ The Death of Stalin.
