Nothing is off-limits for Leslie Jones’ stand-up routine.
“If I see another 45-year-old white woman from Williamsburg saying ‘black lives matter,’ I’m going to punch you in the mouth,” the “Saturday Night Live” star said during her recent four-night stint at New York comedy club, Carolines on Broadway. “Stop doing that.”
In what the New York Times dubbed “a raucous, high-volume” set, the 49-year-old’s politically focused act tackled the Black Lives Matter movement and other protests that have followed Donald Trump‘s presidency.
“Not one black woman out there,” she said of the marches. “Black woman at home watching ‘Housewives of Atlanta.’”
In August, nude photos of Jones were leaked on her personal website. She laughed off the hacking scandal during her routine, explaining that although it was hard to explain to her relatives, she’d been trying to send out pics of herself in her birthday suit.
“You really just helped a sister out. Thank you for the distribution,” she said.
