Monday To-Do: Leslie Jordan




5:30 p.m., Clear Channel Metroplex. $25-$250.

"Will & Grace" fans remember Leslie Jordan for his scene-stealing (and Emmy-winning) recurring role as Karen's nemesis, Beverly Leslie, an effete Southerner with a wicked knack for insults. Jordan's also appeared on "Ally McBeal," "Monk" and the stage, film and TV versions of Del Shores' cult hit "Sordid Lives." Within the gay community, he's an icon, known for his one-man stage testimonials about life as a tiny gay man (he's 4' 11") growing up in a conservative family in Chattanooga. Monday, he presents his latest one-man show, "My Life Down the Pink Carpet," in a benefit for the Stonewall Democrats of Arkansas. Expect plenty of stories about childhood agonies, celebrity encounters — from Boy George to George Clooney — and sex and alcohol addiction. Booze will be available for purchase during the pre-show reception at 5:30 p.m. Jordan hits the stage at 7 p.m., and will be available to sign books and DVDs afterward.
