3 Fools 4 April is the first CD/DVD made by the actor Viggo Mortensen, released in 2006. The album was recorded at Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center in Venice, California (like his two live albums Live at Beyond Baroque and Live At Beyond Baroque II) on April Fools Day (April 1) of 2005.

The album features the reading of Viggo Mortensen, his son Henry Mortensen, and Scott Wannberg. Some of the readings come from poets like the Chilean Nobel prize winner Pablo Neruda, Chuang Tse, or even his ex-wife Exene Cervenka, while some of them are anonymous.
