The great thing about life is that great unexpected and unpredictable things can happen. I mean, who would ever think that a 4'11", gay, flamboyant, and funny "ha ha" man would be one of the most sought-after scene-stealers on television?

That's Leslie Jordan.

He is the type of actor and comedian who can take the smallest of character parts and make them a pinnacle element of any sitcom or dramedy on TV. He's traveled far from his first TV series, "The Fall Guy" in 1986, winning an Emmy in 2006 for playing Beverley Leslie on "Will & Grace" and appearing in the acclaimed 2011 film "The Help."

Based out of San Francisco, BEBE SWEETBRIAR is the Omni Present Drag Chanteuse. As an entertainer and hostess, BeBe can be scene every week hosting and performing at countless events and parties in the San Francisco. One of the few drag personalities to sing live while performing, BeBe has literally graced every notable stage in San Francisco, bridging many gay sub-community gaps. She has also been the opening act for Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland, "Ugly Betty’s" Alec Mapa and Dance Diva Kristine W. Adding recording artist to her list of performance accomplishments in 2008 with the release of her first single "Save Me", Ms. Sweetbriar will soon release her fifth dance single in 2012 called "Show It Off"..
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
