Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Actor and comedian, Leslie Jordan is a small town man with a giant propensity for scene stealing. Best known for his raucous, outrageous recurring role as Karen Walker’s nemesis Beverley Leslie on the television classic Will & Grace (garnering an Emmy for Best Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, 2006) as well as his career defining role as ‘Brother Boy’ in both the original film Sordid Lives and the recent Logo TV sensation, Sordid Lives, The Prequel, Leslie begins his long-awaited run at The Palm on Friday, Feb. 15 with an already sold-out opening night (don’t worry: 7 performances follow). Leslie is also well known for his outrageous and memorable appearances in commercials and hit television shows including Reba, Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, Alley McBeal, Boston Legal, Murphy Brown, Monk and as a series regular on the 80′s sitcom Hearts Afire. Most recently, Jordan gave us a brief yet indelible splash performance (cartwheels anyone?) in the Academy Award winning box office sensation The Help.

A veteran of the live stage as well, his one-man autobiographical shows include Hysterical Blindness, and other Southern Maladies That Have Affected My Life Thus Far, Full of Gin & Regret, Stories I Can’t Tell Mama (which he’ll perform in Vallarta), Deck Them Halls Y’All and My Trip Down the Pink Carpet which was based on the best-selling autobiography of the same name and filmed as an HBO Special. Mr. Jordan also won the Ovation Award, The Garland Award and The Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for his portrayal of Preston Leroy, the aging, sodden barfly in Del Shores hit play Southern Baptist Sissies.

Advance reservations are highly recommended. Tickets for ‘Stories I Can’t Tell Mama’ are 350 pesos (plus two drinks minimum) and may be purchased online at www.ThePalmPV.com or at the door starting 2 hours before showtime each evening.
