SAN FRANCISCO (October 26, 2015) – Feinstein’s at the Nikko is thrilled to welcome back Emmy Award winner, Leslie Jordan, for two performances of his brand-new one-man show, Not In My House! – Friday, November 13 (8 p.m.) and Saturday, November 14 (7 p.m.). An active supporter of the LGBT community, Jordan was inspired to create his new show after a headline-making confrontation with a pair of assailants using anti-gay slurs while at his local West Hollywood Starbucks. Jordan began yelling the phrase, “Not in my house!,” while helping to lead the pair out of the establishment. The confrontation ended with police arriving to assist. Tickets for Leslie Jordan range in price from $25–$40 and are available now by calling 866.663.1063 or visiting www.ticketweb.com.
Leslie Jordan is one of the most consistently recognizable faces in popular entertainment. His journey towards stardom has provided one of the quirkier, impressive varied career trajectories of the past few decades. His arrival in Hollywood back in 1982 (with $1500 sewn into his clothing by his steel magnolia Mother) was the starting gate. After a brief career as a jockey, Jordan has enjoyed the full show-business spectrum; the lean days, the bumps in the road, the acclaim, reaching the pinnacle of television performing with award recognition, the ensuing victory laps followed by an alarming and unexpected down slope, the dangers of being type cast or stereotyped, the challenges to remain relevant in a rapidly changing world of technological advancement, and the ever present threat of being put “out to pasture” by a youth obsessed culture and industry. Through it all, Leslie Jordan has remained constant, relevant and, above all, funny! His ability to take it all in stride has kept him moving onward and upward, through it all.
Leslie Jordan is the prestigious Emmy Award winner in 2006 for “Will & Grace”. He has enjoyed rapturous reviews for his original stage plays (My Trip Down the Pink Carpet, Stories I Can’t Tell Mama, Fruit Fly), and supporting presence in one of Hollywood’s most prestigious, message-minded films of the last decade (“The Help,”2012). He’s been singled out with great notices for his off-Broadway musical theatre debut in 2011 (“The Lucky Guy”). His defining role as “Brother Boy” in the cult film sensation “Sordid Lives” evolved into a well-received prequel on the LOGO Channel.
As the celebrated author and star of his own HBO Special (“Pink Carpet”); Leslie Jordan remains consistently sought after as a Guest Star on every imaginable form of episodic, comedic television (TV Land’s “The Exes”, Fox’s “Raising Hope,” Disney Channel’s “Shake it Up!” ABC’s “The Neighbors.” He enjoyed a star turn in the third season of FX’s instant classic “American Horror Story” opposite Hollywood heavyweights Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson and Francis Conroy. He recently appeared in the smash reality competition “Celebrity Big Brother UK”.
Leslie Jordan has conquered the international stage with sold out runs in Mexico, Canada and the U.K., and remains an in-demand mainstay as a stage/TV/film performer, voice-over artist, fund raiser, spokesperson, out artist, equal rights activist and all around Southern Baptist celebutante.
