John Waters

Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas-obsessed, legendary filmmaker and raconteur John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame) rides into town on his sleigh full of smut-spreading Yuletide cheer with his critically acclaimed one-man show, A John Waters Christmas. Putting the X in Xmas, Waters's rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes traditional archetypes as he shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of true-crime holiday horror stories.
