John Waters putting the X back in Xmas on tour, coming to Durham

Eccentric writer, artist, filmmaker, actor and many other titles, John Waters, is heading out on a one man Christmas tour this December that promises to put the X back in Xmas.

Waters' "rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions as he shares his compulsive desire to give and receive perverted gifts, a religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories." It should be pretty crazy.

The tour will stop at the Carolina Theatre in Durham on Wednesday, December 15. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday, October 22 at 10 a.m. here for $39 or $29.

Stream the the song "Here Comes Fatty Claus" from Waters' 2004 album A John Waters Christmas below.
