SYNOPSIS
My Trip Down The Pink Carpet is Leslie Jordan s rollicking, faced-paced collection of stories served up with wit, panache, and plenty of biting asides. Filled with overwrought childhood agonies, offbeat observations, and revealing celebrity encounters from Boy George to George Clooney it delivers a fresh, laugh-out-loud take on Hollywood, fame, addiction, gay culture, and learning to love oneself.

Recorded during Leslie s live one-man-show in Atlanta, My Trip Down The Pink Carpet shows the singular comedian in rare form as takes material from his book of the same name and brings it to life onstage. With his signature southern drawl and self-deprecating humor, Leslie recounts the trials of being a gay, southern man with aspirations of entering show business. Above all, his story affirms the importance of defining your own success even if you re a man who fell out of the womb and landed smack dab in your mother s high heels!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious September 17, 2010
By Jeff B
I have enjoyed watching Leslie Jordan for a long time on tv and in movies. I thought he stole every scene he was in on 'Will and Grace'. So when his first show "Like a Dog on Linoleum' first played here in Atlanta, I couldn't wait to see it. I don't think I have ever laughed so hard at any show in my life. (Note to Leslie and Breaking Glass Productions- PLEASE put that show on DVD too!). So when this show came to Atlanta, I knew it was going to be just as good, and I was right. Now everyone can see it on DVD. And it is well worth the price. Leslie can take the most common of 'gay' experiences (being bullied, trying to go into your first gay bar) and make it so hilarious through the humiliation and fear it actually was. Then he can turn around the describe his experience in a straight recovery group and really make you think.
Leslie is a truly gifted comedic talent, and I hope he is back on TV soon in a starring role. As he says towards the end of the show, he is one of the 'fabulous' queers. I think that is a perfect way to describe him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Old Southern Gay Boy Makes Good December 24, 2010
Leslie Jordan is probably best known for his role in the play, movie and TV series "Sordid Lives," but he's been making the rounds in Hollywood for over 30 years. "My Trip Down The Pink carpet" is his one-man show where Jordan delivers anecdotal stories, jokes and zingers about his life. It's highly entertaining, funny, and towards the end, when Jordan goes into the details about his rehab and ongoing sobriety (and how he has found a way to give back), serious.

It's a great deal of fun to watch a man who tells the audience "I fell out of my mother's womb and right into her high heels" describe a life that is gay with a capital G, and makes no bones about it. Certainly, he is preaching to the choir here, but "My Trip Down the Pink Carpet" shows Jordan as a man who survived the Hollywood machine with his wit intact. The stories about Boy George, George Clooney and Marc Harmon are funny and some of his one liners are laugh out loud bulls-eyes. More to the point, the success of this self described "I'm the gayest man I know" is inspirational.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must See Video December 21, 2010
Whether you're gay, straight,
or in between, you will love this concert.
Leslie's wit and charm will win
your heart. He also gets serious during
the last several minutes of the concert,
which will bring tears to your eyes.
I *highly* recommend this video.

Saw Leslie Jordan in San Francisco doing his one man show entitled "Like a Dog on Linoleum".........was in stitches or tears for almost two hours. "Pink Carpet" was good but not as good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing and a little thought provoking May 7, 2011
Verified Purchase
Leslie Jordan makes good comedy, there is no doubt about that. He has been around for a while and has picked up a lot of wisdom and has observed a lot during his life so far. His style is flamboyant of course and it can get a bit tedious, but all in all it is a good show. If you do not like gay stand-up comedians, I would not suggest watching this.
