It is a testament that the one person she credits her success to is her social worker which in itself says it all.

Growing up in South Central, the only race of people she saw on television were white.
Next year, Haddish returns to her co-starring role on the NBC comedy The Carmichael Show, alongside the show’s creator and star, Jerrod Carmichael.
