John Waters is best known for the 1988 film Hairspray which became an international success and was later adapted into a hit Broadway musical. Waters has written and directed other films, including Polyester (1981), Cry-Baby (1990), Serial Mom (1994), Pecker (1998), and Cecil B. Demented (2000). His films contain elements of post-modern comedy and surrealism.

This weekend the 75-year-old is presenting "It's a John Waters Christmas... the booster shot you need" in northwest Houston at The Heights Theatre.

It is Water's doing what he does, spoofing life. The one-man show stated in San Francisco, California at the Great American Music Hall and will terminate in his home town of Baltimore, Maryland.

The Brooklyn Vegan.com describes Water's efforts, "Filmmaker and trash connoisseur John Waters is heading out on his annual "A John Waters Christmas" holiday tour starting next week. What to expect? "This rapid-fire monologue for adult delinquents asks the holiday questions, ‘Was Joseph a virgin, too?’, ‘Is Santa now an incel?,’ ‘Is Rudolph a bossy bottom?’, ‘Prancer a no-fats-or-femmes top?’ And Vixen, well, ‘Did she make love with Russ Meyer?’

Faux miracles really do happen if you pray to a lower power and Waters begs for the Satanic Temple to convert Greta Thunberg, hopes for a holiday ‘wilding’ outbreak against the Christmas spirit from non-Christian minority children worldwide, and dreams of a new Catholic saint based on Chucky, the horror movie icon. John Waters, the Santa Clause who will give you pause, the fucked-up Father Christmas is coming to town to put the X back in Xmas. Be there or die.”

The promotion around the production says, "Contaminated presents. Infected sticks and stones. Who says Santa has been vaccinated? Not even an elf! Expect the big-boned guy with a glandular problem to, once again, home invade your chimney without the slightest nod to modern science. Mask less Christmas! Carrier New Year! Santa flicked the light switch and its suddenly back to a safe capitalist holiday for all. Like an obsessed and shell-shocked St. Nick from quarantine, John Waters, the “people’s pervert” or “queer Confucius” as the press recently called him, is back after a two-year home detention in Baltimore to hit the road again for his 25th Annual Xmas Tour. Bad little boys and girls and everybody in between and beyond, will be thrilled to take a sleighride-of-sleaze down the slopes of good taste and over the ski jump of religious beliefs to a snow drift of candy cane anarchy. They’ll be no silent nights this year. Not after a year of unsafe kissing and government ordered masturbation. No, the sanitization of Christmas cookies and the wiping down of presents must stop. It’s time to celebrate. Even Jesus wants to party! Touch your face! Breathe on your family! Sit in the middle seats on airplanes. Dance naked in retirement homes. It’s fun! It’s f***ed up! It’s a John Waters Christmas and fa-la-la, you’re not dead yet. "
