10 of Leslie Jones’ Best Moments On Her 50th Birthday
Today, comedian Leslie Jones celebrates her 50th birthday. Check out some of our favorite moments from her on the following pages.
Her come up
I remember watching Leslie Jones on Def Comedy Jam and not knowing exactly what to make of her. But by the end of her set, I knew that she was funny and unforgettable.
Showing her appreciation for Whoopi Goldberg
This was a beautiful moment for Black women on tv and yet another argument about the necessity of representation.
Her interview on Wendy Williams
From telling Wendy that she only came on her show to get some shoes from a woman of her stature, from talking about her odd jobs marrying people and waitress-ing at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles and more, this was fun to watch because she was genuinely happy to be there and Wendy asked her some pretty good questions. Then there were the moments where she slid in some realness saying that the more successful she becomes, the more single she is.
Speaking out against designers
Speaking out against racism at the Ritz
Speaking out against Twitter trolls
This dance as an old woman
What can I say, it just tickles me.
On Jimmy Fallon
When Jimmy Fallon got Leslie Jones on his show, he wanted to keep her there all day. Not only did she tell an incredible story about how Jamie Foxx helped her out early on in her career and mixing up White celebrities he also invited her back for a game of True Confessions With Keegan-Michael Key and Fallon himself. Check out the sit down above and the True Confessions game below.
