The year 2017 was a turning point for Tiffany Haddish. After working for years as a comedian and actress, Haddish became a household name when she starred in the 2017 hit film “Girls Trip.” For that role, she was nominated for a host of awards and walked away with trophies from the NAACP Image Awards and the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.
Later that year, she released her memoir “The Last Black Unicorn,” which quickly became a New York Times bestseller. Since her breakthrough, Haddish has appeared in a host of films and television shows including “The Lego Movie 2,” “Night School,” and “The Secret Life of Pets 2.” Beginning in October, you can watch Haddish as she hosts “Kids Say the Darndest Things” on ABC.
