Born in Baltimore, MD in 1946, Waters was drawn to movies at an early age, particularly exploitation movies with lurid ad campaigns. Famed the world over for his trash epics including Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, Hairspray, Cry Baby and many more, John Waters takes the Strand stage with his rapid-fire one-man spoken word “vaudeville” act that celebrates the film career and joyously appalling taste of the man William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash”.

Waters will share his early negative artistic influences, his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, the extremes of the art world, Catholicism, sexual deviancy and a love of reading.

His one man spoken-work lecture entitled "This Filthy World" is performed at colleges, museums, film-festivals and comedy clubs around the world. In 2010, he played to sold out audiences at the Traverse City Comedy Arts Festival, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival and the Sydney Opera House. In 2006, Netflix released a film version of the live act that was screened at the Toronto, Berlin and Edinburgh Film Festivals. In 2004, the music compilation CD "A John Waters Christmas" was release by New Line Records and was followed up in 2007 by "A Date With John Waters".
