This week, Ira spoke with iconic filmmaker, actor and author John Waters, author of the new book, “Mr. Know-It-All, The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder.” In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Waters talks about his practical tips for making movies and dealing with Hollywood; how rejection is part of show business; his connections with Las Vegas; the day Liberace called him; how this is a country where he can be a provocateur and not face the firing squad; why old friends are important; and his only regret in life.
Waters’ books, Role Models (2010) and Carsick (2014) were national bestsellers, and his spoken-word shows This Filthy World and A John Waters Christmas continue to be performed around he world. Indecent Exposure, a retrospective of Waters acclaimed artwork, was recently shown at the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio. He is at work on a novel.
