Critically Acclaimed artist LEA DELARIA seems to have achieved overnight stardom with her two-time, SAG Award-Winning, stand-out role as 'Carrie 'Big Boo' Black' in the Netflix hit series "Orange Is the New Black." However, DeLaria's multi-faceted career as a comedian, actress, and jazz musician has spanned decades. She's received Obie & Theater World Awards. She is the first openly gay comic on television to pull some Ella Fitzgerald magic out of the hat and do a scatting duet with fellow comedian Conan O'Brien. Lea has performed in some of the most prestigious houses globally, including Newport Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Chicago Symphony, Hollywood Bowl, The Royal Albert Hall, and the Sydney Opera House. Her sixth album, House Of David delaria+bowie=jazz released to rave reviews.
