Overview

An individual widely regarded as one of the funniest men in show business, and also a fixture of gay culture, Leslie Jordan spent his first few decades in the industry racking up droll tales of his life and experiences. Those stories appeared in Jordan's bestselling memoir My Trip Down the Pink Carpet, and now form the basis of this performance video. Jordan toplines the program, speaking candidly and wittily about his initial trip from small town America to Los Angeles on a Greyhound bus, with $1,200 sewn into his undershorts; he also opens up about irresistible temptations, painful childhood angst, encounters with everyone from Culture Club frontman Boy George to Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney, and most of all, the long and touching journey of self-acceptance and self-love that he himself undertook.
