Actor-comedian Leslie Jordan visits FOX 11 News at Noon

Leslie Jordan is best known by today's audiences for his stand-up comedy and his recurring role as Beverly Leslie on NBC's "Will & Grace."

The show was a success in the '90s and '00s and was recently renewed after 11`years off the air with most of the original cast, including Jordan as Karen Walker "frenemy," played by Megan Mullally.

Long before "Will & Grace," Jordan made a name for himself in Hollywood.

In his latest stand-up comedy show "Exposed," Jordan explains some of his early days in the biz--arriving here in the early '80s with stars in his eyes and dreams of making it in tinsel town.
