It was typical John Waters 'Off the Wall' humor - very good, although I noticed 3 or 4 'older' members of the audience get up and leave!
Both my companion and I enjoyed the evening and are now going to try and locate his films to rent and view...continued

Super fun. It was pretty much just him standing there telling stories and making jokes, but I enjoy listening to him talk even more than I enjoy watching his movies so it was great.

John Waters is always a hoot, as witty, cynical, and contemporary as ever. I would like to have seen Matt Gubler do more of a schtick, and Elvis' musical act was funny, but got repetative. He could have shortened it by one or two numbers.

Description

As a screenwriter, director, artist, actor, and all-around filth elder, John Waters has become a rotten renaissance man of unprecedented cultural influence. Not only was his movie Hairspray turned into a wildly successful Tony Award-winning musical, his recently published memoir, Role Models, has been called  “alarmingly refined.” Waters’ one-man vaudeville act, This Filthy World Goes Hollywood sends up show business, the art world, and his own lunatic career in a rapid-fire performance. Dynamic modern-rock recording artist Elvis Perkins opens the show with a solo set, and actor Matthew Gray Gubler hosts as the evening’s emcee.
