Leslie Jones’ comedy special is coming to Netflix.
Entertainment Weekly offered up the first look at the trailer for the “Saturday Night Live” alum’s very first stand-up special titled "Leslie Jones: Time Machine."
Since the special is directed by “Game of Thrones’” mastermind’s David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, it’s only fitting that the trailer includes a ton of hilarious “GoT” references and assumes a “GoT” theme.
The first moments of the trailer start out ominous and dangerous – it’s definitely not what you’d expect from a comedy special.
“The mother of dragons is coming to Netflix,” the clip teases before switching gears to a more lighthearted and comedic soundtrack.
The official synopsis for the special reads, “Comedian, actress, and Emmy Award-nominated SNL alum Leslie Jones is all about having fun. Through the years that fun has encompassed wild times, crazy experiences, celebrity encounters, and a few awkward mishaps. Now older, and enlightened, the comedian imparts her hilarious wisdom on all ages. Strap in, because you’re headed on a wild, side-splitting ride from young adulthood to the present with Leslie Jones.”
The special was announced in August, around the same time Jones announced her exit from NBC’s “SNL” ahead of its 45th season.
The funny lady has a slew of gigs lined up for 2020 including voicing a character on “The Angry Birds Movie 2,” hosting the reboot of “Supermarket Sweep,” and landing a part in the “Coming to America” sequel.
Prepare to laugh when the special hits Netflix on Jan 14.
