Neil Simon's Biography

Neil Simon (born July 4, 1927) is an American playwright and screenwriter, considered one of the finest writers of comedy in American literary history. He has written over thirty plays and nearly the same number of movie screenplays, most adapted from his plays. Although he has received more Oscar and Tony nominations than any other writer, many feel that he has been underrated as a playwright during much of his career because he wrote comedy rather than drama.
