Filmmaker John Waters has long been fixated on the weird things that pass for wholesome in American life, so it's no surprise he's fascinated by Christmas.

These days, Waters celebrates the season with a live, one-man Christmas show, which he's bringing to the Berklee Performance Center in Boston on Dec. 10.

Considering Waters is alternately called the "Prince of Puke" and the "Pope of Trash," one might wonder what "A John Waters Christmas" looks like. Apparently it includes an "S&M Santa Claus."

Guest:


  • John Waters, filmmaker

This program aired on December 2, 2011.
