Recording of the hilarious John Waters commencement speech, originally given at RISD graduation in the Spring of 2015. This spoken word 7″, entitled Make Trouble, features the cult-hero filmmaker delivering his thoughtful and riotous advice to fresh young faces entering the working world. You never forget your first time watching a Waters film (for me, Pink Flamingos) and you won’t forget his words on this recording either.
Third Man is proud to present John Waters reading excerpts from his subversive and brilliant commencement speech. This speech was originally read at RISD’s spring 2015 undergraduate commencement in its entirety, released earlier this year by Algonquin Books, and now read by Waters himself.
