Presidential talking points: KPCC interview about ‘November’
In the extended version of an interview with 89.3 KPCC, Ed offers up some backstory on November, the David Mamet play he starred in at the Mark Taper Forum in October 2012:
The President is a big target for humor, what does “November” do differently?
“I had seen [past David Mamet plays] “American Buffalo,” “Glengarry Glen Ross,” and “Oleanna,” and then I got to work with [Mamet] on “The Cryptogram,” and I realized personally how funny he was. He is so funny in person, I went ‘Wow, wouldn’t it be great if he wrote a comedy?'”
