Leslie Jones has had a long career in stand-up, starting in 1987. She has won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2017 and 2018 for her work on 'Saturday Night Live.' She recently starred in the all-female 'Ghostbusters' remake.

Directors 

Leslie Jones and Seth Meyers had a series of reaction videos to 'Game of Thrones' called 'Game of Jones', which is what brought the 'Game of Thrones' directors DB Weiss and David Benioff in to direct her special. 

Trailers

Netflix released a trailer for the stand-up special on January 7. The trailer shows her celebrating her age, and making fun of today's 20-year-olds. There is also a minor 'Game of Thrones' reference, as the credits of her name burn away to reveal the directors' names. 



 

The trailer was released with the following synopsis: "From trying to seduce Prince to battling sleep apnea, Leslie Jones traces her evolution as an adult in this joyfully raw and outrageous stand-up special."
