Leslie Jones performs surprise set at private club before book drops

Leslie Jones — who just released a candid new memoir — was a surprise performer at the Ned Nomad on Friday night, we hear.

Sources said that the former “SNL” star surprised the members club during Mike Young’s regular comedy show, and that Jones had the crowd in stitches with her especially raunchy act.

When she spotted New York actor Lorenzo Antonucci — who has appeared in shows such as HBO’s “Ballers” and “Game of Thrones” — in the crowd, Jones “immediately” started trolling his table with a series of jokes, a source told Page Six. 

When Jones strolled around the room, “to see who she wanted to f–k tonight,” she told the audience, she set her sights on Antonucci, and quipped to the actor, “We ain’t going to f—k, but I’m gonna sit on your face,’” our source related.

“He turned red and the table was dying in laughter,” the source said. “He was a perfect sport.”

Richie Akiva hosts the show in the club’s Magic Room. Young, who toured with the late Bob Saget, organizes the comics, and past acts have included Michael Rapaport. T.J. Miller and Theo Vaughn.

Chanel Omari, Sienna Hubert Ross, Luke Mones, Seatom Smith, and “The Tonight Show” writer Zahid Dewji were among the list of comedians at Friday’s show.

Mones, Dewji, and Smith had the room “rolling in laughs,” we hear, cracking, “jokes about COVID, Kanye West, finance guy culture in NYC and weed paranoia,” our insider told us.

Modeling in the Big Apple was also a hot topic as New York Fashion Week just came to a close.

“American Idol” finalist Sam Woolf performed a two-song acoustic set to open the evening, which had the room singing along to “Hey Jude.”

Young closed out the night making fun of the sex lives of Gen Xers.

Jones’ new book, “Leslie F–king Jones,” came out Tuesday from Grand Central Publishing.
