Leslie Jones hopes SNL cuts down on the "political stuff" next season
“I hope next year we can do more funnier stuff instead of a lot of political stuff this year, which we had to,” Jones said in an interview with The Wrap. “There was so much stuff that was happening, there was no way that our show, with the responsibility that we have, would not to cover that stuff. It was just too important. But I do hope that next year will be a lot more funny-funny based stuff, more comedy based stuff instead of a lot of political stuff.” Jones added that comedy can't "always be serious. You need The Three Stooges just as much as you need John Oliver.” Jones also expressed frustration that longtime cast member Kenan Thompson isn't more appreciated. “People are not really realizing how much of a foundation he is to the cast," she said. "Most of the stuff that you see him in that works, it works because of him. He’s the glue to all of it. It’s very infuriating to see people not notice that.” ALSO: SNL's Pete Davidson paid $93,000 for the engagement ring he gave Ariana Grande.
