Molly Shannon Used To Run A Scam Pretending To Be David Mamet’s Assistant
We can all appreciate a good scammer over here in this corner of the internet, especially one with hustle and initiative. Even better, is when the scam is essentially a victimless crime. Better still, when the mark has just proven himself to be, not just worthy of derision, but worthy of a hale and hearty “get her, Jade!” In this case, the mark is pedophile-obsessed playwright David Mamet, and Saturday Nnight Live alum Molly Shannon already done got him way back in the 90s! In her new memoir, Molly talks about the “Mamet Scam” she and her friend Eugene Pack used to run, that led to her landing a role in a 1991 episode of Twin Peaks. Always be closing? Ha! How about always be conning. That’s how Molly learned the ABCs.
David Mamet Gave A Bonkers Interview To Fox News Where He Accused Teachers Of Being Student-Grooming Creeps
David Mamet is an iconic American playwright, and maybe the most iconic line from his extensive body of work (which isn’t even material he actually wrote, it was specifically written for the film) is Alec Baldwin’s monologue from Glengarry Glen Ross, in which Alec reminds the agents that coffee is a privilege for closers only, and that one should ABC – always be closing. David Mamet must have misremembered what that acronym stood for, because he recently appeared on Fox News and brought some major ABC energy, except in this case, his mental motivation was to always be crazy. David spoke about the recent conversation surrounding teaching sex, sexuality, and gender in schools, and almost everything that came out of his mouth could have filled 20 coffee mugs with bullshit. Like David’s theory that most teachers are pedophiles, whether they know it or not. Zosia Mamet, come collect your father.
