A John Waters Christmas in February

CL Critic Matthew Warhol Recommends: For John Waters, Christmas continues way past December. Baltimore’s B-movie icon and comedian John Waters loves Christmas. Not because of the capitalist bloat that occurs during December, but for the lasting memories and togetherness the holidays bring. His yearly Christmas tour is a stand-up celebration of the joy and madness of the holidays. According to Waters, the set is different every year with the same bones. So just like the holiday itself, even if you think you know what’s going to happen, the unexpected is sure to surprise you. — MW
From the venue:There are currently no COVID-19 mandates applicable to the show. Given the changing nature of the virus and local mandates, our COVID-19 protocols are subject to change. Please visit our website for more information. It's a John Waters Christmas :and your eyes will pop right out of your head. Yep, he's back, with Christmas lunacy throbbing in his veins. Cockeyed. Rabid. Ready to reinfect the lunatic fringe with holiday jeer. "The Pope of Trash", as William Burrough once called him, is coming to your fair city on his annual festive home-invasion to slide down your chimney of burning gift-wrapped needs, igniting your lust for presents and sparking the sexual desires of the newly perverted. It'll be a combustion of Christmasly-incorrect kindling that will blaze into a glorious nut-case Noel fire from hell. Go ahead! Knock over that tree! Stomp your presents! Manger Danger! A raging new critical theory that no PTA can ever stop. Scream! Scream again! It's a John Waters Christmas for Chrissake!
