We welcome back the incomparable writer and director, John Waters, to the Carnegie Music Hall with an all-new version of his solo stand-up performance, and his first in-person performance since the start of the pandemic. Waters’ joyously devious monologue celebrates the film career and obsessional tastes of the man William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash”. His latest book, Mr. Know-It-All: The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder, was published in 2019.

Please note: This performance contains adult subject matter and strong language.
