Leslie Jones: Stand-Ups

Jones started to do stand-up comedy in college in 1987, when a friend signed her up for a “Funniest Person on Campus” contest. After she won the contest, Jones left school and moved to Los Angeles. She performed at regular clubs and worked at Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles and UPS to make ends meet. Mother Love and Dave Chappelle encouraged her to move to New York City to hone her craft for two years, where she appeared on BET’s ComicView before returning to Los Angeles.

She performed at The Comedy Store in West Hollywood but received unfavorable reviews. She opened for Jamie Foxx and was booed by the audience. Feeling she lacked experience, Jones stopped performing for three years. Fearing that she would only ever be known in African American circles around 2010 she began to stop playing so called “black clubs” One night Chris Rock saw her perform and gave her name to several of “the biggest managers in comedy” all of whom “didn’t get it.” Rock would eventually help Jones get a job at Saturday Night Live.In 2008, Jones was part of Katt Williams’s It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin’ tour.

Leslie Jones: Some of the Memorable Jokes

Benioff and Weiss cannot ruin any of Jones’s jokes. Right from the beginning, she lets us know she is keeping it 100 in her 50s. “Y’all know I don’t care. I got my knee brace on the outside. I don’t give a f—.”

In her one nod to GoT, Jones describes younger versus older womanhood as the difference between finding angels or dragons underneath those panties. “When your angel turn into a dragon, that’s when you’re gonna know how to f—.” The audience cheers. “All the dragons.” Jones points to those cheering. “You know what I’m saying? Dragon keep the dick warm (exhales). Dracarys! (exhales) Winter’s coming, bitch.”

Benioff and Weiss do keep the camera focused on Jones long enough, too, for her to re-enact her go-to strategy for catching Prince’s attention at a Grammys after-party back in the 1990s. For more than two minutes, Jones keeps the microphone dangling down by her knee brace, just dancing. The only sounds we hear here come from the audience laughing and cheering her on.

She pivots from this scene into a description of her 30s and later when she realizes she’ll attract neither Prince nor “Prince Charming,” and remind us she has not grown into a “Sleeping Beauty” herself, which she illustrates with a re-enactment of her nightly routine, sleep apnea and all. Her 40s were all about denial, and Jones pokes fun at herself for trying to think that 42 could be the new 22.
