  4. Congrats on your new special Leslie. I can't wait! You are hilarious!!! πŸ˜πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Best wishes.

  5. I love her as a stand up. That's where i found her on youtube doing star up and it was hilarious! Happy to hear about the Netflix special!

  6. When you whatch a video like that and klick the like button in the first few minutes and then there are so many more good moments you wanna klick like for. 1000 likes for this video. You go girl!!

  7. What I love about her is that she’s not a one trick pony like haddish, Jones can be loud she can be witty and she can formulate actual jokes and not just have to nae nae and talk about bootyholes πŸ˜­πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

  8. I frequent a small comedy club in my area that bring in some big names that hold around 150 people. I've seen some well known comedians and her performance is still my favorite. There was a lady in the front heckling and Leslie straight up destroyed her.
