Comedy sensation Leslie Jordan dead at 67

Leslie Jordan, the diminutive but flamboyant comedian who rose to fame as the COVID pandemic swept the world, has died as the result of a car crash. He was 67.

Jordan first showed up on the pop culture radar in 20200 when he posted the above video, which spawned the catch phrase “daddy, watch me twirl.”

As of today, he has more than 5.8 million followers on his Instagram.

He was also known for his Emmy-winning performance on TV’s Will & Grace as Karen’s archnemesis.

In 2019, Jordan hosted the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s Creative Business Awards.

His charm and wit were fixtures of the WeHo Starbucks and will be greatly missed.

He was a kind and approachable person when he was a recognizable character actor; he remained just as kind and approachable after his rise to pop culture sensation.

I never had the pleasure of meeting him but many of my friends did and they all said he was a really kind, caring and hilariously funny friend.

A simple hello to him in the neighborhood (old Starbucks) was returned with the brightest smile you could ever imagine.

Poor dear Leslie. Very, very sad news today. He lives on in our hearts, YouTube and his long list of work. I believe his mother is still alive too 😢😔✝️
