Miss Saturday Night - Leslie Jones: A Trailblazer And A Symbol Of Resilience And Determination

May 16, 2023

Leslie Jones is a Comedian and Actress who has taken the Entertainment Industry by storm in recent years. Known for her bold and hilarious performances on "Saturday Night Live" and in films like "Ghostbusters" and "Coming 2 America," Jones is one of the most in-demand performers in Comedy today.

On Saturday, May 13th, 2023 at 8:00 p.m., Jones will be performing live at The Parker in Fort Lauderdale as part of her Stand-Up Comedy Tour. She will be joined by Lenny Marcus, her Co-Host on the Podcast "The Righteous and Ratchet," for a night of laughter, irreverence, and fearless humor.

Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Jones got her start in Comedy as a Stand-Up Comedian, performing at clubs and festivals around the country. She was a finalist on "Last Comic Standing" in 2010, and soon after was hired as a Writer for "Saturday Night Live." Her standout performances on the show quickly made her a fan favorite, and she was eventually promoted to the cast.

Jones is known for her brash and unapologetic style, and her willingness to take on controversial and taboo topics. Her stand-up sets are a mix of personal anecdotes, social commentary, and hilarious impersonations, and she is equally at home riffing on Politics, Pop Culture, and her own experiences as a Black Woman in America.

In addition to her work in Stand-Up Comedy, Jones has also become a sought-after Actress, appearing in a variety of Films and Television Shows. She has been praised for her performances in movies like "Top Five" and "Trainwreck," and her role in the all-female "Ghostbusters" Reboot was hailed as a breakthrough for Black Women in Hollywood.

But despite her success, Jones has faced her fair share of adversity. She has been the target of Racist and Sexist Harassment Online, and has spoken out against the Discrimination and Marginalization faced by women and people of color in The Entertainment Industry.

Through it all, Jones has remained a fearless and outspoken voice for Comedy and Social Justice. Her performances are a testament to the power of humor to confront difficult issues, and her infectious energy and irreverent spirit make her a must-see performer for audiences of all ages.
