Tiffany Haddish is quickly establishing herself as one of the most sought-after comedic talents in television and film. She most recently starred alongside Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and Regina Hall in Universal’s Girls Trip, one of the stand-out comedy hits of 2017.
Haddish’s journey in life has inspired her comedy and sense of humor on and off stage. Growing up in foster care in South Central Los Angeles, it was her excessive talking and imaginary friends that prompted her increasingly flustered social worker to steer her into standup comedy by enrolling her into the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp for children.
In 2017, Haddish debuted her Showtime comedy special,Tiffany Haddish: SHE READY! From the Hood to Hollywood, and will next be seen starring alongside Tracy Morgan in the new TBS show, The Last O.G. and with Kevin Hart for Universal’s Night School. In December she released her first book, The Last Black Unicorn; a collection of autobiographical essays about Haddish’s journey through life, comedy and inspiring others.
Haddish has many other TV and film credits to her name, including appearing as a series regular on NBC’s The Carmichael Show, co-starring with Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in the film, Keanu, a recurring role on the Tyler Perry’s OWN soap opera series, If Loving You Is Wrong, Kevin Hart’s BET show Real Husbands of Hollywood and FOX’s New Girl. She has also made many television stand-up comedy apperances including the Tonight Show, Chelsea Lately and The Arsenio Hall Show.
Haddish currently tours all over the world bringing her edge, unusual take on life and love, and tons of laughter. She sees herself as "Sexy as Halle Berry, as funny as Jim Carrey, raw like Richard Pryor with the comedic timing of Lucille Ball, smooth like Eddie Murphy, Jewish as Whoopi Goldberg, and hopes to someday have money like Oprah". VanityFair.com has simply called her “the funniest woman alive.”
