John Waters Christmas

If the yuletide cheer of the holiday season makes you want to gag, then you can't do worse than spend a night during December with 'The Pope of Trash,' John Waters. The "Pink Flamingos" director returns to New York next month with his acclaimed one man show, "A John Waters Christmas."

Per the show's site:

Placing the ‘X’ firmly in X-Mas, Waters shares some of his favorite holiday traditions, from his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts to his religious fanaticism for Santa Claus and an unhealthy love of real-life holiday horror stories.

The show runs December 13 and 14 at Stage 48. For tickets go here.

And for a taste of what a John Waters-style Christmas entails, here's one of his carols, titled "Here Comes Fatty Claus."
