OK, if you don’t already know the name Jordan Temple, you really ought to commit it to memory. As both a stand-up and a writer (of so many different types), he has set himself apart with one-of-a-kind voice that is subtle, introspective, wildly imaginative, and so powerfully funny.
For one, Temple has been writing on Atlanta, but he also wrote a play based off the awards season flub of Hidden Fences that was one of the most hysterical stage productions we’ve seen in years.
So, Jordan is embarking on a solo show, Sweet Lorraine, that celebrates the life of his grandmother, Lorraine, and, given his resume, it should be something wholly affecting and very special.
Don’t miss out on Jordan putting it up at The Elysian on Sat. May 14th at 8PM PT. Tickets are $16 and you can (and very much should) go get ’em here.
