Leslie Jones Explains Why She Doesn’t Miss ‘Saturday Night Live’
Leslie Jones has moved on from Saturday Night Live, and she’s not looking back. According to The Source, when asked if she missed her previous employee, she says she doesn’t.
She states, “I don’t miss it at all. I miss Kenan, but I don’t miss [it]. That job was hard, man. That job was like two jobs and very restrictive too. I wasn’t very free there.”
She also talks about her new gig, Supermarket Sweep. “It’s just, you know, a comedian’s dream come true.”
She explains that with the help of her roommate, she’d been training for the job since her initial audition. “I trained my roommate; I made her watch the show; I made her run up and down grocery stores,” Leslie says. “So when we got to the audition, we were destroying teams.”
Leslie Jones was on SNL for five seasons.
