Since her breakout role in the movie Girls Trip, Tiffany Haddish has been stealing scenes in films like Night School and Bad Trip, and establishing herself as a force across mediums: on television where she was the first Black woman stand-up comedian to host SNL; on the stage starring in the comedy specials Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood! and Black Mitzvah (which won the Grammy for Best Comedy Album); and on the page as the author of the memoir The Last Black Unicorn and the new essay collection, I Curse You With Joy. Struggle, perseverance, and empowerment are recurring themes in her life and work, and her truth-telling is inspirational. It is clear that Haddish is relishing her hard-earned successes, and it’s a pleasure and an honor to get to laugh along with her.
