Guys! Guys! John Waters is coming to Cleveland on Sept. 27 for a 90-minute one-man show.

Deets below. Tickets here.

John Waters, the Baltimore underground filmmaker ("Pink Flamingos") turned American cultural icon, appears in person to present a unique one-man show that has delighted audiences around the world. Waters' "vaudeville act" (as he calls it) is a 75-minute monologue in which the man whom William Burroughs once called "the Pope of Trash" dissects his checkered film career and unusual tastes. Listen and laugh as the outré auteur with the pencil mustache details his early negative artistic influences — from true crime and exploitation films to lunatic fashions — and explores the extremities of the contemporary art world. Waters' talk will be followed by a Q&A, then by a book signing. (Copies of his new tome "Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America" will be sold.) Note that "This Filthy World: Filthier and Dirtier" is a completely updated presentation of Waters' one-man show "This Filthy World", which is available on DVD. No one under 18 admitted! Cleveland premiere! Approx. 90 min.
