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 to stand-up comedy by enrolling her into the world famous Laugh Factory Comedy Camp for Children. Tiffany has been making people laugh ever since, appearing on VH1’s “Best Week Ever,” HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” “Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes” for TV One, and also on Comedy Central’s “Reality Bites”. Not only is she a comedian, she has proven to be a versatile actress appearing in such diverse projects with Guest Star roles in ABC’s “In the Motherhood” and Comedy Central’s “Reno:911.” She also was seen in the film comedy “Meet the Spartans” and the Lifetime drama “Racing for Time,” where she played a Lead role opposite Charles Dutton. Currently, she is appearing opposite Ice Cube in “Janky Promoters” and is one of the stars of the “OWN” series “If Loving You Is Wrong” created by Tyler Perry.
Tiffany Haddish credits her social worker for her success as a comedian/actress.
Tiffany’s comedy has taken her all over the world. She recently returned from
performing on the USO Tour in Japan for U.S. Troops. She has performed all over
Southern California at various comedy clubs and local venues such as: The Laugh
Factory, The Comedy Store and Improv. She also performs at a comedy show
“Chuckles Not Knuckles”, a program she developed for inner-city high school students
that promotes non-violence.
Tiffany sees herself as sexy as Halle Berry, as funny as Jim Carrey, raw like Richard
Pryor with the comedic timing of Lucille Ball, smooth like Eddie Murphy, Jewish as
Whoopie Goodberg and hopes to some day have money like Oprah.
