Show Description
This filthy world has certainly changed and so has John Waters’ spoken word show, now entitled “False Negative”. The all-new fast moving seventy-minute monologue gets a “Halloweener” holiday spin that will give fans of the artistically infected a really scary booster shot.
The man the French press recently called the “Queer Confucius” is back on the road and ready to give new goblins, witches, and everyone in between a reverse trigger-warning for this horror-house ride of post-covid comic thrills. John Waters doesn’t need a costume, he’s in disguise as himself every day of the year. Trick or treat. You must excrete.
