Leslie Jordan on Getting Pranked by George Clooney and Singing with Dolly Parton- Late Night with Seth Meyers

Late Night with Seth Meyers

  • Here’s me wishing I had 1/10 of Leslie Jordan’s charisma.

  • I will never understand why that would so rarely happen. Leslie Jordan is one of the best and funniest people that has even been in front of a camera or at all for that matter. He should always be called back, the world needs more of his positive attitude.

  • I wish that every gay man from the south was as accepted as Leslie is, in that community. It shouldn't have to take getting famous or having a giant personality. But I think he has opened many minds and hearts. I love him so much and I love Dolly, wish I was a fly on the wall during that conversation! 💖

    • Lol, that's an assistent, for instance at tv shows, that makes sure she's on time when they want to start recording. They can also get them something to eat and drink, etcetera, so that the artist doesn't have to worry about things and can relax and concentrate on performing.
