The master of cinematic filth walks the boards to deliver a stand-up routine as impressive as any of his films. As a John Waters fanatic I relished this material; cosily familiar, but hilariously shocking nonetheless. But this will come as no surprise to the initiated as the beast of Baltimore ploughs his crude furrow with a wit as sharp as Divine's costumes. New comers to Waters' Filthy World should also benefit as he provides an engaging and colourful history of his film making career, suffused with on and off screen anecdotes, gracious tributes to various actors (not least the irreplaceable Divine but also Mink Stole) and fellow directors, bawdy accounts of Baltimore nightlife, loveable freaks and outsider humour. If you've only seen Hairspray be cautious of this 18 rated show.
