"[When I was on SNL,] people would always be like, 'Leslie, why is you messin’ up?'" Jones recently told EW. "I was like, 'I gotta read out loud and I can’t see the [cue cards]!'" Comparing that experience to her work on Supermarket Sweep, she added, "Here, I gotta have a [rapport] with the contestants and I still got to read all this text. So, yeah, it was difficult. But because of stand-up, I was able to make it… through Leslie Jones’ eyes."
