Episode #82: Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish ended up in foster care after a serious car accident left her mother with even more serious complications. Getting into trouble herself, Tiffany found refuge and more as a teenager at the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp. It hasn’t all been easy since then, but after appearing on several TV comedy competitions, Tiffany has landed a supporting role on the critically acclaimed NBC sitcom, The Carmichael Show, and the new Key and Peele movie, Keanu.

Haddish described attending the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp at the same time as Amanda Bynes and getting feedback on her earliest jokes from the legendary Richard Pryor, the revelation that she was sleeping in her car outside the Beverly Hills home of a future employer, and how a pep talk and prayer session from Kevin Hart almost instantly changed her life.

So let’s get to it!
