David Mamet (born November 30, 1947) captures colloquial, everyday dialogue—often of the profane variety—in his plays and screenplays. Credit that, perhaps, to his early days as a Chicago taxi driver and factory worker. Moving from drama to satire to comedy, he won a Pulitzer Prize for Glengarry Glen Ross and received Oscar nominations for screenplays for The Verdict and Wag the Dog.
