Jess welcomes the best butch in showbiz — comedian, jazz singer & Orange is the New Black’s “Big Boo” — Lea DeLaria! Lea discusses her big break performing as the first openly gay comic on TV in America (on Arsenio), working with Goldie Hawn on The First Wives Club and how her life changed within 24 hours of Netflix dropping the first season of Orange is the New Black. We also chat about Lea’s friendship with Sandra Bernhard, rising to fame with RuPaul, why the Cubbyhole is her fave bar and a lot more!
