Format: Paperback
(Hee, hee, hee.) Psss...t! (Hee, hee, hee.) Wanna hear somethin' funny? Culture Clash. The book presents their most memorable work to date, although the point can be easily argued (e.g., at the Japan America Theatre, their wickedly hilarious, cathartic "S.O.S." following the mop-up of the L.A. Riots/Rebellion/African-Korean Turf Wars). "The Mission" (1988), "A Bowl of Beings" (1991), and "Radio Mambo: Culture Clash Invades Miami" (1994) are the published plays. Japanese-American playwright Philip Kan Gotanda introduces the Chicano comedy troupe--Herbert Siguenza, Ric Salinas, Richard Montoya--in a 9-pg. transcribed interview, covering the education and work experience of each member, group evolution, collective creation, and comedy group alliances. A 4-pg. glossary of bicultural terms/refs. can be found in front. Each play is prefaced by a different member of the group. BW production photos give the reader the illusion of watching the show in between script consultations.
I haven't seen "The Mission" yet, but I've caught other shows and benefits they've done, enough so that I could hear C.C. talking in my head as I read through the script. Weird. Lalo Guerrero's song "No Chicanos on TV" pretty much summarizes what this play is about and how desperate out-of-work actors can get, in this case kidnapping Julio Iglesias for their 15 minutes of fame. There's also some irreverent stuff (I didn't say irrelevant) about Father Junipero Serra.
"A Bowl of Beings" premiered at the Los Angeles Theatre Center in July 1991; it was the first time I saw them. I watched "Bowl" on PBS the following March and saw it yet again that October at Univ. of Calif., San Diego.

Format: Paperback
This books provides a written guide to the hilarious stage antics and dead serious social commentary of this comedy trio. Richard, Rick and Herbert have that strange ability to make you laugh out loud then make look over your shoulder wondering whether you should. Those fortunate enough to have experienced Culture Clash will recognize where the improv begins and ends. This book gave me the opportunity to revist the many places these guys took me, at my own paso.
