Word on the street is that her appearance in the upcoming summer comedy from super producer Will Packer and director Malcolm D. Lee – “Girls Trip” – just might help catapult her to comedy stardom. And the Showtime network may also be hoping to ride that wave when it premieres Tiffany Haddish in her very first stand-up special, “Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood,” on Friday, August 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, just under a month after “Girls Trip” opens wide in theaters (July 21, 2017).
In her Showtime special, filmed at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, the Los Angeles native Haddish tackles subjects ranging from her early days in foster care and being bullied on the playground, to getting revenge on ex-boyfriends and introducing Will and Jada Pinkett Smith to Groupon, says the press release. With her bold and unique style of comedy and refreshingly positive outlook on life, Haddish proves “She Ready” for the spotlight!
An early standout since first appearing on “Def Comedy Jam,” Bill Bellamy’s “Who’s Got Jokes?” and Comedy Central’s “Reality Bites,” in addition to “Girls Trip,” Haddish can currently be seen starring in the third season of “The Carmichael Show,” and will be starring alongside Tracy Morgan in his upcoming comedy series “The Last OG,” created and executive-produced by Tracy Morgan and Jordan Peele.
Haddish co-starred alongside Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in the film, “Keanu.” Her other film credits include “Meet the Spartans,” “Racing for Time” and “The Janky Promoters.” Her other television credits include recurring roles on “If Loving You Is Wrong,” “Real Husbands of Hollywood” and “New Girl.” She has made appearances on “The Tonight Show,” “Chelsea Lately,” and the most recent incarnation of “The Arsenio Hall Show.”
Get ready world! Tiffany Haddish is coming… if you don’t already know who she is.
