Tiffany Haddish is quickly establishing herself as one of the most sought-after comedic talents in television and film. Haddish brings her #SheReady tour to the College Street Music Hall in New Haven on Friday, April 6, showcasing her edge and unusual take on life, love and laughter. Tickets range from $48-$78 and 100% of the VIP ticket proceeds will directly benefit the Connecticut Alliance of Foster and Adoptive Families.
Haddish was recently seen starring in Universal’s Girls Trip alongside Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and Regina Hall. Girls Trip had the highest opening for an R rated comedy in the past two years and VanityFair.com called Haddish “the funniest woman alive.” She will next be seen starring alongside Tracy Morgan in the new TBS show, The Last O.G and recently wrapped production alongside Kevin Hart for Universal’s Night School. She most recently released her memoir The Last Black Unicorn, which made the NY Times bestseller list. Additionally, Haddish is breaking barriers and became the first black female stand-up comedian to host SNL, which she did this November, coming off the success of 2017 and Girls Trip. Upcoming projects she is currently developing include Limited Partners for Paramount which she will EP and star in and The Temp for Universal which she will star and serve as EP on as well.
Previously, in August she debuted her comedy special for Showtime titled Tiffany Haddish: SHE READY! From the Hood to Hollywood and she was a series regular on NBC’s The Carmichael Show. Other past credits include co-starring alongside Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in the film, Keanu, a role in Meet the Spartans and the Lifetime drama Racing for Time, where she played a lead role opposite Charles S. Dutton and opposite Ice Cube in The Janky Promoters. Her television credits include a recurring role on the Tyler Perry’s OWN soap opera series, If Loving You Is Wrong, Kevin Hart’s BET show Real Husbands of Hollywood and FOX’s New Girl.
Haddish was an early stand out since first appearing on HBO's Def Comedy Jam, Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes? for TV One and on Comedy Central's Reality Bites. Haddish’s journey in life has inspired her comedy and sense of humor on and off stage. Growing up in foster care in South Central Los Angeles, it was her excessive talking and imaginary friends that prompted her increasingly flustered social worker to steer her into standup comedy by enrolling her into the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp for children where she got her start in the comedy world.
