John Waters, renowned cult film-maker most famous for his 1988 musical hit Hairspray, is coming to Melbourne this October to perform his one man show This Filthy World. In his first ever national tour, Waters' show celebrates his own film career and self-confessed obsessive tastes, giving audiences a glimpse into the life of the man once described as "The Pope of Trash".

Waters has described his show as a self-help group for people who don't need self-help. "It's to try to make yourself feel good about being nuts, which I think is important these days," he says. Littered with literature, history, fashion lunacy, true crime and high art, with an abundance of laughs thrown in, this is a once in lifetime opportunity to see a quirky, down-to-earth show.
