“I feel like you always have to bring a little bit of yourself as a performer. You always put a little bit of your soul out there so people can connect to it way faster.”
Recently, Tiffany Haddish landed her first hour-long special with Showtime network. She revisits her roots in LA’s South Central, for a live taping at the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center. Tiffany Haddish’s set touches on everything from her foster care upbringing to ex-boyfriend revenge. Catch the debut of ‘Tiffany Haddish: She ready!
