Charles Ludlam (April 12, 1943 Floral Park-May 28, 1987 Manhattan) also known as Charles Braun Ludlam was an American actor, playwright and theatre director.

He co-founded the Ridiculous Theatrical Company in New York City in 1967, and the company rose to prominence for their avant-garde and often controversial productions. Ludlam wrote and starred in many of the company's productions, including the critically acclaimed play "The Mystery of Irma Vep", which he wrote in 1984 and starred in alongside his partner, Everett Quinton. Ludlam was known for his flamboyant and inventive performances, often playing multiple characters in the same production. He died in 1987 at the age of 44 due to complications from HIV/AIDS. Despite his relatively short career, Ludlam left an indelible mark on the world of experimental theatre and continues to be remembered as a pioneering force in the off-off-Broadway movement.
