With multiple high-profile projects and buzzworthy appearances to her name, Tiffany Haddish has quickly established herself as one of the most sought-after comedic actresses and performers. She can currently be seen opposite Tracy Morgan on the TBS comedy series The Last O.G., currently in production on its second season. She also stars alongside Kevin Hart in Universal Pictures’ Night School, opposite Ike Barinholtz in Roadside Attractions’ The Oath, and alongside Tika Sumpter in Paramount’s Nobody’s Fool. She is also a first-time Emmy Award Winner for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for hosting Saturday Night Live.
Haddish is perhaps best known for her breakout role in the smash comedy Girls Trip, where she appeared as the scene-stealing “Dina” alongside Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, and Regina Hall. The performance earned her critical praise from the media, with Vanity Fair calling her “the funniest person alive right now” (7/17) and Vulture writing “you cannot take your eyes off Haddish when she’s onscreen” (7/17).
Haddish’s journey and life experiences have inspired her comedy and sense of humor both on and off the stage. While growing up in foster care in South Central Los Angeles, her excessive talking and imaginary friends prompted her increasingly-flustered social worker to steer her into standup comedy by enrolling her in the Laugh Factory’s Comedy Camp, a place for at-risk and underprivileged children to transform negative energy into something positive. The experience became just the beginning of her comedy career.
