Film-maker, screenwriter, author, stand-up comedian, art collector, hitchhiker, and friend of Amoeba John Waters will be doing another one of his popular one-man Christmas show tours this upcoming holiday season. The tour kicks off in San Francisco at the end of this month features back to back California dates including LA on December 5th, all before heading back East to wind up the four-week tour.
Themed loosely around his 2004 release A John Waters Christmas, Waters' live show focuses as you would expect on the offbeat and the kitsch end of the holiday. He covers a lot of territory, discussing gifts to give and how to react to ones you receive. Also, as he states in an interview from last holiday season with his hometown TV interview below ? of Baltimore's WBAL TV, he offers invaluable tips on how to survive the drama of the holidays and "how to react to the trauma of it, if your family's crazy, and how to get through it."
Tickets are on sale now, but some shows are already sold out including the SF date. California dates include San Francisco at the Great American Music Hall on November 29th, San Diego at The Stephen and Mary Birch North Park Theatre on December 1st, Palm Springs at McCallum Theatre on December 2nd, San Juan Capistrano at The Coach House Dec 3rd, Agoura Hills at The Canyon on December 4th, in Los Angeles at The Comedy Store in Hollywood on December 5th, and back up in NorCal at the City Winery in Napa on December 6th.
