The Prince of Puke

Join us in welcoming the legendary “Sultan of Sleaze” John Waters to the Fox stage with an ALL-NEW, fast-moving monologue called End of the World — with a ‘Halloweener’ holiday spin, ready to take goblins, witches and everyone in between on a horror-house ride of the comically absurd.

Costumes encouraged! (John Waters doesn’t need a costume; he’s in disguise as himself every day of the year). 

Lookin’ to jack your lantern?!? Mash your monster?!? 

John Waters is a man of many monikers: The Prince of Puke, The Duke of Dirt, The Sultan of Sleaze. Any way you put it, John Waters is famed the world over for his trash epics including Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, Polyester, Serial Mom, Cecil B. Demented and Hairspray.

Halloweener is the next chapter in Waters’ rapid-fire one-man spoken word Vaudevillean act, This Filthy World, celebrating the film career and joyously appalling taste of the man William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash.” In this live performance, the legend himself talks about his early negative artistic influences, including his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, the extremes of the art world, Catholicism, sexual deviancy and a love of reading.

John Waters’ knack for creating weirdly lovable characters shines in his first (and recently released) novel, Liarmouth: A Feel-Bad Romance, a hilariously filthy tale of sex, crime, and family dysfunction. 

Marsha Sprinkle: Suitcase thief. Scammer. Master of disguise. Dogs and children hate her. Her own family wants her dead. She’s smart, she’s desperate, she’s disturbed, and she’s on the run with a big chip on her shoulder. They call her Liarmouth―until one insane man makes her tell the truth. Perfectly perverted, Waters invites readers to hop aboard this delirious road trip of riotous revenge.
