Leslie Jones Complete Bio & Career

Leslie Jones attended college on a basketball scholarship before turning to stand-up comedy. After several years on the comedy circuit, Jones joined Saturday Night Live as a writer in 2014, and soon became one of the show's most popular performers. She went on to appear in films like Trainwreck, Ghostbusters and Masterminds, while also earning attention as a contributor to NBC's coverage of the Olympic Games.
 
She worked several odd jobs while in college, including as a cook, waitress, cashier, assistant to a judge, receptionist and perfume salesperson, but comedy kept calling her. She returned to Los Angeles and performed at The Comedy Store, the legendary comedy club in West Hollywood, but her act bombed. Jones didn’t let the deflating experience stop her, and she went on to open for Jamie Foxx. She bombed again and this time the audience even booed her. 
 
Eventually Jones started to appear on TV in commercials and programs like In the House, Coach, Snap Judgment, Malcolm and Eddie and Girlfriends. She performed at the Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, the Aspen Comedy Festival, on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and Laffapalooza – Urban Comedy Arts Festival, BET’s The Way We Do It and Comicview and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam.
 
With Saturday Night Live looking to add an African-American woman to its ensemble, Jones landed an audition for the late-night comedy show in December 2013. She was ultimately offered a writing position instead of a featured player role, which was instead given to comedian Sasheer Zamata. One of the show's most popular performers, Jones earned Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2017 and 2018. In August 2019, a month before the start of the new season, Jones announced she was finished with her run on SNL.
