Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas obsessed, John Waters - legendary filmmaker (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame), and author of the 2010 bestselling book, Role Models - cruises into town on his sleigh full of smut this December spreading yuletide cheer and lunacy with his critically acclaimed one-man show, "A John Waters Christmas". Putting the "X" back in Xmas, Waters' rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories. Delving into his passion for lunatic exploitation Christmas movies and the unhealthy urge to remake all his own films into seasonal children's classics, "The Pope of Trash" will give you a Joyeux Noel like no other.
