Naughty-listers rejoice—it’s the filthiest time of the year! Christmas isn’t for a few more weeks, but John Waters is roasting the chestnuts a little bit early with his hysterical one-man show. He’s the pencil-mustachioed director behind trailblazing cult films like Pink Flamingos and the more commercially successful Hairspray, and has also authored books like Role Models and Carsick. In 2015 Waters shared his corrupted wisdom with the Rhode Island School of Design’s graduating class in a commencement address that serves as the basis for his newest book, Make Trouble. Now he’s touching down in Portland to present A John Waters Christmas, which celebrates the season’s most intriguing delights: gay reindeer, satanic nativity scenes, unsafe children’s toys, and much more. Nervous your parents won’t get you those goddamn cha-cha heels? Dreading familial fisticuffs over the honey-glazed ham? The Pope of Trash is coming to salve those yuletide woes. CIARA DOLAN
