Leslie Jordan follows up his book with a anecdote laden tour "My Trip Down the Pink Carpet." He'll be in Charleston on Tuesday (July 14) at 8 p.m. at the Charleston Music Hall.

The openly gay man is best known for his role on Will & Grace as Karen's pretentious rival. He often plays eccentric, effeminate southerners in many TV.

The Los Angeles Times offers this tidbit about his tour:
"So there I stood at the 2006 Emmy Awards," Jordan coos, his tale of co-presenting with Cloris Leachman setting the riotous tone of bemused candor. In sly collusion with director David Galligan, Jordan sails through a stream of tartly written anecdotes, some blue, some dishy, all affectionate, while building his point about the internal homophobia that plagued him from his Tennessee childhood through nearly 40 years in show business, substance abuse and acute crushes on divas and male costars.
