The first time I saw a John Waters' film, I turned to my friend and stated, "I don't know who this guy is, but I can tell you he went to Catholic school." Well, as it turns out, I was absolutely correct. His reaction to the Church's comments about him just about made me choke with laughter.
Everything about John Waters is just so genuine that you can't help but like him.
Funny, intelligent, and off-the-wall John Waters is as colorful as his movies and he'll keep you entertained for the 86 minutes he's on stage.
For special features there's a lengthy Q&A with the audience.

I have only seen John Waters on interviews and had a passing knowledge of his films. While watching interviews I always found him a funny and witty man. I bought the DVD and kept my fingers crossed that the same sense of humour would be transfer over. I shouldn't have worried, John tells the story about his childhood and his fascination with showbiz and movies; which continues to the struggles of making movies and the interesting characters he has meet on the way.
For a film director, he does come across as a funny and charismatic story teller which would make the best stand ups green with envy.
