Leslie Jordan is a small town man with a giant propensity for scene stealing. He is perhaps best known for his raucous, outrageous recurring role as Karen Walker’s nemesis Beverley Leslie on the television comedy Will & Grace, having won the coveted Emmy Award for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series in 2006, as well as his career defining role as ‘Brother Boy’ in both the original film Sordid Lives and the Logo TV prequel sensation, Sordid Lives the series.
Leslie returns for a long-anticipated three-week run at The Palm Cabaret and Bar on Sunday, Jan. 4th at 7:00 p.m. in his all new show ‘Say Cheese! My Life In Front Of The Camera’, which humorously examines his life in front of the camera; more specifically, his relationship with the camera of good friend and professional photographer Jim Cox. Cox’s photos of Leslie and friends are featured prominently, as the show’s subject matter.
Leslie Jordan is well-known for his outrageous and memorable appearances in commercials and hit television shows including Reba, Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, Ally McBeal, Boston Legal, Murphy Brown, Monk, and American Horror Story, opposite Hollywood heavyweights Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson and Francis Conroy.
