When we sat down with Leslie Jones to talk about comedy, being a big chick, and why there were no black women on SNL, she had not yet been called to audition for the show, which would ultimately end up with her being hired as a staff writer.
While she’s put in work getting ready for her break, that didn’t stop me from arguing with her about why a sista can’t get ahead. Owen sat back and enjoyed this. It got heated. I think we both were right. Chris Rock thinks Leslie Jones is one of the funniest women in the business. You wanna know why? Punch Play.
