Leslie Jones Lands Ticket To Olympics After Enthusiastic Twitter Commentary

Elle Women In Comedy Event


Leslie Jones is headed to Rio! After a ton of enthusiastic Olympic tweets, the very patriotic star was invited by NBC Olympics executive producer Jim Bell to the Olympics as a commentator.”We’re thrilled to have Leslie come to the Olympics. She’s a member of the family, and her passion for the Olympics is remarkable.”

Leslie was super excited for the opportunity tweeting, “Guess who’s going to Rio? Guess who’s coming to Rio? You guys I’m gonna show y’all everything lmao!! Good and bad!! Hopefully it’s all good!! SO EXCITED!! USA!USA! Ok packing I’m in the middle of watching Olympics so I might miss some stuff!!”

Sounds like an awesome gig for the comedian—she will attend swimming, track and field, gymnastics and beach volleyball events.
