From Jan. 17-19, comedian Leslie Jones made headlines hosting Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.”
In a now-viral clip, the former “Saturday Night Live” cast member questioned the new statue of Martin Luther King Jr. unveiled at Boston Commons.
His take on unconventional design was NSFW to say the least.
And now that her three-day stint as a guest host for “The Daily Show,” you can catch her live on stage.
Jones is set to conduct a short tour she calls “Leslie Jones: Live” from January 28 to June 15.
Along the way, she’ll stop at Atlantic City’s Sound Waves at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on March 11 and Red Bank’s Hackensack Meridian Health Theater on June 16.
Still not sold?
We’re happy to report that select tickets to see the unique “Ghostbuster” can be found for as little as $51 before fees on Vivid Seats at the time of publication.
It’s practically a steal considering you’ll get to see the comic that The New York Times called “a force of nature, the work of raw charisma, and a whirlwind of energy.”
Additionally, on all dates, she will be joined by comedian and “Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore’s” Lenny Marcus.

Leslie Jones on “The Daily Show”
From Jan. 17-19, 55-year-old Jones brought her uncompromising and hardcore perspective to the office where she slammed Stephen A. Smith for saying “Rihanna isn’t Beyonce,” George Santos and the Ban on TikTok in college.
If you want to catch his hot takes, brutal honesty, and hilariously hardened wisdom for yourself, check out his 12-minute monologue from the January 19 episode below.
Leslie Jones Comedy Specials
Although Jones has been performing since 1987, she has only released two specials during her career.
His first, the 2010 Showtime special “Leslie Jones: Problem Child” can be streamed on Amazon Prime.
Most recently, Jones recruited “Game of Thrones” show runners David Benioff and DB Weiss to direct his second “Time Machine” special.
Decider said “giving Jones an hour or more in the spotlight gives her the opportunity to shine in a way she never could on ‘SNL'”.

Opening act for Leslie Jones
At all shows, Jones will be joined by New York comedian Lenny Marcus.
Marcus, known for his “The Fckry” podcast with Leslie Jones as well as his appearances on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show with David Letterman, often works with Jones.
He co-wrote his “Time Machine” special and works and produces “Supermarket Sweep,” which Jones hosts.
You can see his acerbic stand below.

Jones has hosted “The Fckry” weekly podcast with Marcus since August 2022.
