Plot Summary
John Waters is known as the "Prince of Puke," a moniker he embraces in both his life and his art. As he muses on his early childhood in Baltimore, Waters identifies his earliest influences, including tacky drive-in movies and local burlesque performers. He recalls his rocky introduction to film, how his longtime friend Divine, a genderbending drag performer known for his outlandish stunts, inspired some of his most famous work and what he really thinks about "this filthy world."

  • Tossing off one-liners about drugs and porn to a New York audience, even Waters sounds a little bored. show more

  • Some long patches in this show are surprisingly boring and unfunny. Maybe part of the problem is that the rest of the world has caught up with Waters -- nowadays everyone's a provocateur. In-your-face gay-themed material is no longer such a novelty; there are simply fewer boundaries left to transgress. show more

  • Even if he's never able to mount a full-scale return to the happy depravity of his youth, Waters is one of bad behavior's most likable champions. show more
