Tiffany Haddish          

Comedian, Actress, Dancer & Author

Emmy & Grammy award winner Tiffany Haddish has established herself as one of the most sought-after comedic actresses and performers worldwide. She can currently be seen in Sony’s Here Today where she stars opposite Billy Crystal, as host of CBS’ "Kids Say the Darndest Things" and in Netflix’s "Bad Trip". Haddish also reprises her role as Tuca in the animated series "Tuca & Bertie" which second season airs Sundays on Adult Swim and Apple TV’s murder mystery series "The Afterparty".

Haddish is perhaps best known for her breakout role in the smash comedy "Girls Trip", where she starred as the scene-stealing "Dina" alongside Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, and Regina Hall. Her other film and television work include "Like A Boss", "The Kitchen", "Between Two Ferns: The Movie", The Secret Life of Pets 2.

Her Emmy-nominated and Grammy-winning comedy special, "Tiffany Haddish: Black Mitzvah", debuted on Netflix in December 2019. Haddish became the second black woman ever to win a Grammy for Outstanding Comedy Album and the first since Whoopi Goldberg won in 1986. Her first stand-up special, "Tiffany Haddish: She Ready!" From the Hood to Hollywood was released on Showtime in August 2017. Just three months after the special’s release, Haddish made history by becoming the first black female stand-up comedian to host Saturday Night Live, which earned her the 2018 Emmy Award for "Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series". In June 2018, Haddish took the reins as the host of the MTV Movie and TV Awards, a role that earned her critical acclaim and significant ratings boost for MTV.

Haddish’s first book, a memoir called The Last Black Unicorn, was released in 2018. The book made the New York Times Best Sellers List, and the companion audiobook, narrated by Haddish, was nominated for a 2019 Grammy Award for “Spoken Word Album.”

Haddish’s journey and life experiences have inspired her comedy and sense of humor both on and off the stage. She has been very candid about her experiences growing up in foster care in South Central Los Angeles. Her excessive talking and imaginary friends prompted her flustered social worker to steer her into stand-up comedy. She enrolled in the Laugh Factory’s Comedy Camp, a place for at-risk and underprivileged children to transform negative energy into something positive. The experience was just the beginning of her comedy career. Haddish recently founded The She Ready Foundation to help and support foster kids in need. In 2021 The She Ready Foundation launched an Internship Program with Ready To Succeed for foster youth in the SoCal area. She currently lives in Los Angeles.
