She has Ellen and Oprah’s approval

When Oprah surprised Tiffany during her appearance on The Ellen Show, Oprah kept telling her how amazing and funny she is. If Oprah loves someone, then you know they’re good. Watch the video here.

Girls Trip is easily the funniest movie of 2017

Full of grapefruits, zipline malfunctions, and hallucinations, you’ll laugh so hard you’ll cry. Tiffany stars alongside Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, and Regina Hall, a.k.a. the women I want to lead all comedies from now on.

She’s already a New York Times bestselling author

Tiffany tells one unbelievable story after another in her new book, The Last Black Unicorn. Do yourself a favor and get a copy. You’ll thank me later.

Her stories are wild

Haddish is a hilarious storyteller. My personal favorite is the story she tells about going on a date with a coworker at LAX in this interview with Trevor Noah. I mean, just look at the way Trevor Noah reacts to her story at the very end. He flails around and it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

She took Will and Jada Pinkett Smith on a Groupon swamp tour

After she told this story on Jimmy Kimmel, I realized Tiffany is truly one of us. Down to earth, genuine, and relatable. Just casually trying to tour swamps with her world-famous costar and her husband. 

She beat the odds

Tiffany grew up in foster care. Even after going through traumatic experiences, she still has the most positive outlook on life. Her resilience is undeniable and now she’s a huge success.

She hosted SNL

Need I say more? You know you made it when you host Saturday Night Live. Tiffany Haddish is already an icon. You don’t even need to make an effort to pay attention. Her talent will demand it.
