At the Podium
She’s ready? Are you?
Sidesplitting, hysterical, edgy, Tiffany Haddish is one of the most memorable talents of our times.
Growing up in one of the poorest neighborhoods of South Central Los Angeles, Tiffany learned to survive by making people laugh. If she could do that, then her classmates would let her copy their homework and the other foster kids she lived with wouldn’t beat her up. Or at least she could make enough money—as the paid school mascot and in-demand Bar Mitzvah hype woman—to get her hair and nails done, so then she might get a boyfriend.
These early and humble beginnings allowed Tiffany to imagine a place for herself where she could do something she loved for a living: comedy. Tiffany can’t avoid being funny—it’s just who she is, whether she’s plotting shocking, jaw-dropping revenge on an ex-boyfriend or learning how to handle her newfound fame despite still having a broke person’s mind-set.
Finally poised to become a household name, she recounts with heart and humor how she came from nothing and nowhere to achieve her dreams by owning, sharing, and using her pain to heal others. Her New York Times best-selling book, The Last Black Unicorn, chronicles her journey and invites you into her world of humor and hope.
