Andy Warhol's Ridiculous Screenplays is a fascinating first-person account of writer Ronald Tavel's experiences collaborating with the artist on his films from the winter of 1964 through the summer of 1967. During this period, Tavel wrote seventeen screenplays for Warhol, including some of the most significant works in the artist's filmography and in American underground film more broadly: "Screen Test #2," "The Life of Juanita Castro," "Horse," "Vinyl," "Kitchen" (all 1965), "Hedy," and two sections of "The Chelsea Girls" (both 1966). The nature of filmmaking in Warhol's Silver Factory of the mid-1960s meant that Tavel's role as screenwriter was not restricted to a film's pre-production. In most cases, he was responsible as well for directing, performing, and facilitating the performance of the screenplays during filming itself. -from the introduction by Marc Siegel Includes Tavel's essay "The Roots of the Theatre of The Ridiculous in the Scripted Films of Andy Warhol"

In the late 1960s, Charles Ludlam (1943-1987) first brought his unique brand of theatre to New York audiences. Based in part on traditional comic characters, his ridiculous school included such inspirations as Hollywood B movies, camp, drag, opera and theatrical artifice. His shows were also a study in self-collaboration; Ludlam performed simultaneous roles as playwright, director, designer, and actor in his own Off Broadway theatre--the Ridiculous Theatrical Company. Critically, Ludlam's works were often overlooked or misunderstood, and since his death The Mystery of Irma Vep is the only one of his 29 plays that is consistently performed in regional theatres. His work was very visually oriented; much is lost in the simple reading of them. This work provides an overview of Ludlam's life and the roots of the ridiculous. It explores the theatrical underpinnings of his work and then the whole Ludlam canon. The work includes detailed examinations of such plays as Le Bourgeois Avant-Garde, Bluebeard, Galas and Stage Blood. It concludes with a look at Ludlam's work in the 1980s when he redirected his efforts towards presenting new plays, many of them original farces.

As a theatrical form, the "ridiculous" thrived in the 1970s and early 1980s, playfully subverting dramatic and social convention in its mix of camp, role-playing, literary and cinematic allusions--and anticipating the current interest in gender, cross-dressing, and popular culture. Originally published in 1979, THEATRE OF THE RIDICULOUS (now revised and updated) was the first book to document this innovative and challenging form.

In 1961 a fashionable commercial artist named Andy Warhol created an artistic furor in New York with his deadpan versions of the Campbells Soup can. Since then he has become the most talked about but least understood artist of the late 20th century. Warhol made acceptable the use of industrial techniques in the creation of paintings obsessed with modern clichscar crashes, Coke bottles, sex symbols such as Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor. At the same time, his films Blowjob, Sleep, Chelsea Girls, Lonesome Cowboys forced us to look at the object/subject, transformed the bizarre into the banal, and remade the form and content of cinematic experiment and production.
