Leslie Jordan , that small man and giant scene stealer, is one of the funniest men in America. He has created an outrageous tell-all that weaves together a hilarious collection of true life stories (which are also the basis for his popular memoir, My Trip Down The Pink Carpet, recently published by Simon & Schuster).
From small-town USA to the pink carpet of Hollywood – My Trip Down The Pink Carpet tells the unlikely tale of one of America’s true comic icons. With $1,200 sewn into his underpants, Leslie — who describes himself as “the gayest man I know” — boarded a Greyhound bus bound for L.A. and never looked back.
Filled with comically overwrought childhood agonies, dangerous temptations, and revealing celebrity encounters — from Boy George to George Clooney — My Trip Down The Pink Carpet delivers a laugh-out-loud take on Hollywood, fame, addiction, gay culture, and learning to love oneself.
