“When Jones kills at clubs — and she can lay waste to an audience in a way that few others today can match — it can seem like a force of nature, the work of raw charisma and a tornado of energy.”—The New York Times 

Leslie Jones is a three-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee as well as a Writer’s Guild Award and NAACP Award nominee for her work on Saturday Night Live. She has also been honored as one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. Jones recently wrapped production on season two of the MAX series Our Flag Means Death. The week of January 17th 2023 Jones kicked off a new era of The Daily Show as the program’s first guest host. In 2021 she starred opposite Eddie Murphy in Coming 2 America  for which she won an MTV Movie Award and was nominated for a People’s Choice Award.  Jones will next produce an untitled Christmas comedy for Lionsgate which she is currently developing as a potential future starring role. Additionally Jones co-hosts the podcast THE FCKRY with comedian Lenny Marcus. Each week Jones and Marcus interview guests and answer listener questions while exposing “the f*ckry” of any given topic.
