It's Tiffany Haddish's time to shine
For Tiffany Haddish, 2017 was her year. The comedian and actress, 38, has appeared on more than two dozen shows and films, but it was her role in the box office hit Girls Trip that made people take more notice of her talent.
Following Girls Trip, many doors opened up: She debuted her first stand-up comedy special, became the first black female stand-up comedian to host Saturday Night Live, released her first book (a New York Times bestseller) and won a New York Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actress in Girls Trip. The spotlight this year is all over Haddish, but the road to stardom wasn’t easy. Haddish learned to turn her pain into laughter at an early age and gives fans an inside look into her life on her headlining comedy tour, She Ready, which kicked off at the top of the year. She holds nothing back. She might talk about what it was like growing up in South Central Los Angeles, being homeless, open up about her dating life or even her obsession with Groupon. Whatever she brings to the stage, it’s her time to shine.
