[ # ] Leslie Jones shares how she found out she landed SNL
January 31st, 2020 under Leslie Jones, Seth Meyers

Leslie Jones was on Late Night yesterday, and Seth Meyers wanted to know where she was when she found out that she was joining Saturday Night Live. That was when she told him the wild story of how it happened. You know it is going to be good when she lets out a huge laugh before she tells it.

She went in all cocky, thinking she was at the top of her game. Which at the time, she was for what she was doing. After spending a week watching how they did the show, she really wanted to be part of it.

When the week was over, she went back to LA and waited for their call. Well, not really. She went on her with her normal routine. As she was driving to get her nails done, she kept getting calls from a 212 number. She thoought they were going to tell her she didn’t get the job. As soon as she parked, she decided to pick up the call. The voice, on the other end, told her that Lorne Michaels was on the phone for her. Michaels told her, he wanted her to start out as a writer because he did not know what to do with her just yet.

Then when they got off the phone, she got out of her car and ran around the parking lot, screaming like a maniac. The security guard stopped her to find out what was wrong with her. She told him she got SNL, and he wanted to know if it was a disease.

Jones can make any boring story exciting. Just likeb she does on her standup special that is on Netflix now
