    Leslie Jordan, AKA "Beverly Leslie", AKA "Brother Boy" is coming to do a one man show at the Capitol Theater tomorrow, March 2 in Charleston, WV.
    Can't wait! Should be a (filthy) fun time!

    "This is a gay bar??"

    "My associate, Armando...."

    Jack, offering a tray to Beverly as he prances through a party:"Shirmp?"
    Beverly, over his shoulder "Queer!"

    ~~~~~~~~~

    "Oh, Dr Eve! You ain't got no panties on!! And I had enchiladas for lunch!!"

    "Shoot her, Wardell. Shoot her in the head!"


    "I will NOT participate in my own recovery!"

    Good thing this isn't voice-required....I'm hoarse from laughing so hard!!!


    Leslie Jordan is too funny for words on paper....you need to see him in person.
    The after-show at a local gay bar was well attended especially for a mid-week night. Many people (myself included) stood in a long line waiting for a chance to make another donation by buying his book "My Walk Down The Pink Carpet" and a DVD by the same name and getting his autograph and picture taken with him.

    He is a tiny man with a huge humor! Or as he put it "She wasn't any bigger than a worn-out bar of soap!" when he mentioned first meeting Megan Mullally...aka Karen Walker! Who, he said, stole every scene on Will & Grace!

    If you get a chance to go see Leslie Jordan, by all means DO!

    He got 6 standing ovations for his stories but the biggest one was at the ending when he got serious about his friend dying from AIDS in the early 80's who had been delusional and like an Alzheimer's patient but who--in a moment of lucidity--said he prayed to God and God told him "The soul has no gender, it loves who it loves, and that's all you are required to do while on this earth...Love with all your heart."

    PS:He told a hilarious story about how the actress who portrayed Dr Eve tricked him the last night of the play "Sordid Lives" when she lifts up her skirt (with her back to the audience) to show him her vagina while saying "I think it's time you had sex with a woman, Brother Boy!"

    It's better to hear it live, with all the gestures!

    Met him twice and caught his show "Like a Dog on Linoleum". He likes to drop in to Atlanta (lived here decades ago), and is apparently a staple at the male strip club, Swinging Richards. I'll bet money DancerJack has met him there.
