Tiffany Haddish: Tiffany Haddish credits her social worker for her success as a comedian/actress. Growing up in foster care in South Central Los Angeles, it was her excessive talking and imaginary friends that prompted her increasingly flustered social worker to steer her in to stand-up comedy by enrolling her into the world famous Laugh Factory Comedy Camp for Children. Tiffany has been making people laugh ever since,appearing on HBO's "Def Comedy Jam," "Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes" for TV One, and also on Comedy Central's "Reality Bites". Not only is she a Comedian. she has proven to be a versatile actress appearing in such diverse projects as the film comedy "Meet the Spartans" and the Lifetime drama "Racing for Time," where she played a lead role opposite Charles Dutton. Currently, she is appearing opposite Ice Cube in "Janky Promoters".
Tiffany’s comedy has taken her all over the world. She recently returned from performing on the USO Tour in Japan for U.S. Troops. She has performed all over Southern California at various comedy clubs and local venues such as: The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store and Improv. She also performs in a comedy show “Chuckles Not Knuckles”, a program she developed for inner-city high school students that promotes non-violence.
Tiffany sees herself as sexy as Halle Berry, as funny as Jim Carrey, raw like Richard Pryor with the comedic timing of Lucille Ball, smooth like Eddie Murphy, Jewish as Whoopie Goodberg and hopes to some day have money like Oprah
