When Leslie Jones announced her departure from Saturday Night Live in late 2019, she did mention her plans to release a new stand-up special. Now, just a few months later she is fulfilling that promise with the folks at Netflix. A teaser for Jones’ new special, Time Machine is set to be released on the streaming platform on January 14th.
The special was directed by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, if those names sound familiar to you it’s because they’re the creative team behind the HBO mega-hit Game of Thrones TV show. A show which Jones spent a lot of time commenting on on her social media feed.
