I Will

I was sad to hear about Leslie Jordan's passing yesterday. 

Inarguably (IMHO), he was the only consistently funny thing about Will & Grace

Yeah yeah, most of them had their moments here and there, but consistently......it was him. Honestly, it's the reason they had so many guest stars traipse through that landmine of a show - the four regulars, especially the title characters were the - pun firmly intended - straight men. 

I'm not 100% sure Jordan was acting, as the number of things I have seen him in - and his IMBD credits are quite extensive - he's been a version of his Beverly Leslie character.  Maybe that was just him, and that was fine. 

He's been in other series - dating back to when apparently John Ritter and Billy Bob Thornton were on tv together. I'm now quite sure when that happened.....or why.....but it did.  He's also in some new show I've  never seen with Blossom / Amy Farrah Fowler / Jeopardy host. 

....and most importantly, he was on Pee Wee's Playhouse

Jordan was doing some pandemic videos - I think on Instagram. They were funny and on-point, so those will be missed. 

Of course, my big hope is that this will not get the WIll & Grace back together anytime soon
