Wednesday 2.23. - Free-Flowing Spoken-Word with Writer/Director John Waters @ UCLA Live's Royce Hall.

Director, actor, author and all-around filth elder John Waters brings his wildly popular one-man show to UCLA Live’s Royce Hall Wednesday February 23, taking aim at Hollywood during the industry’s most self-indulgent week--the Oscars--with “This Filthy World Goes Hollywood.”

Waters has performed his free-flowing spoken-word lecture entitled “This Filthy World” at colleges, museums, film festivals and comedy clubs worldwide, including a 2010 appearance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Last year, Waters also played to a sold out audience at the Traverse City Comedy Arts Festival and appeared in the Sydney Opera House.

In this UCLA Live appearance, the multi-talented artist focuses his rapid-fire wit on show business, the art world and his own lunatic career in a one-man vaudeville performance.

Independent filmmaker, sketch artist and actor (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) Matthew Gray Gubler serves as emcee and dynamic modern-rock artist Elvis Perkins opens the show with a solo set.

Waters’ sixth book, Role Models, debuted at No. 11 on the Los Angeles Times bestseller list in May of 2010, also earning spots on the bestseller lists for the New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle. Waters other books include Shock Value, Crackpot, Pink Flamingos and Other Trash, Hairspray, Female Trouble and Multiple Maniacs, and Art: A Sex Book (co-written with art critic Bruce Hainley).
