The one and only John Waters returns to Australia with his world acclaimed one-man show, filled with “comic anarchy” – the unique brand of outrageous insights and urbane wit that once earned the cult filmmaker and pop culture icon the moniker, ‘The Pope of Trash’.
As raconteur, Waters has been touring to adoring crowds around the world for nearly 15 years – though his insights are as sharp as ever.
In his own words, “It is a show that I’m constantly updating. I try to make it filthier and dirtier.”
Hysterical, shameless and revelatory, Waters serves up salty reflections on the world today, his camp obsessions and life lessons such as the downsides to being famous (none), all studded with cameos from his larger-than-life stars, from Divine and Mink Stole to Johnny Depp, Kathleen Turner and Patricia Hearst.
Joyously devious, Waters elevates all that is trashy in life into a call to arms to “filth followers” everywhere.
