John Waters gets holier and dirtier for Christmas at the Plaza Live on Tuesday

John Waters has been America’s favorite filthy filmmaker since the early 1970s, so at age 69 you might expect that the “Pope of Trash” would be taking it easy for the holidays. Instead, the near-septuagenarian has been all over lately, appearing on the recent season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and penning multiple upcoming books. And rather than putting up his feet (clad in fabulous slippers, natch) by the fireplace this winter, he’s hitting the road with a revamped reprise of his John Waters Christmas one-man monologue. Waters, who last appeared in Orlando during 2013’s Come Out With Pride event, has been performing variations on this satirical seasonal survival guide for more than a decade. This year’s adult-oriented Holier & Dirtier edition promises to “put the X in Xmas” with a fast-paced filleting of beloved traditions, from Santa Claus to Christmas trees. Feel free to dress like the late Divine (Xmas was her favorite holiday) but leave the dog crap at home, even if it’s eggnog-flavored. 

7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8 | The Plaza Live, 425 N. Bumby Ave. | 407-228-1220 | plazaliveorlando.com | $38-$48
