So I missed about half of the presentation before a question... continued

An evening with John Waters is an amalgam of clever stand-up comedy and astute sociological observation. Waters talked non-stop for more than an hour about his movies... continued

Great show. The problem was that he went on 30 min early. Luckily I got there on time but half the crowd didn't. Tickets said 8pm and John waters even thought it was at 8pm until he said he heard his name being announced at 7:30.

I have not laughed as hard or as long in ages. He was amazing and had the crowd captivated.

John Waters was HILARIOUS as usual. I would have given this 5 stars except the Howard announced him way before 8:00 (which was the official start time), so he started the show before most people even got to their seats.

John Waters never disappoints! His unique take on current events and his stories about the movies that he has made make for a great night of laughter, shock and awe.

Glad I got there early and didn't miss any of the show! John Waters was, of course, fabulous.
The interior of the theatre was pretty fantastic, especially if you go up... continued

John Waters was marvelous - witty, outrageous, but kindhearted and genuine. Interior of the Howard was beautiful. Food was terrible - how can you screw up chicken... continued

Liked the venue. The renovation of the Howard Theater works well. Relaxed atmosphere. Good Show, but of course, how not? John Waters is such a funny and articulate, derelict character.
