When the 2017 summer smash, ‘Girls Trip‘ catapulted Tiffany Haddish into instant fame, people started asking where she had been till now. This is because, Haddish was everywhere, from stealing the show at the Dolby Theater in 2018 or ‘Saturday Night Live,’ the actress became the biggest breakout star in recent times in the U.S. When she dedicated her day as the host of the 2018 Oscars, she told the fully packed Dolby Theater, “My father passed away this year and he’s from Eritrea. He told me ‘one day you’re going to end up at the Oscars and when you go, you have to honor your people.’
That’s Tiffany Haddish, who jumped into stand-up comedy after trying it for the first time at the request of a social worker when she was 17. She survived in Hollywood with a number of important and unimportant supportive roles till ‘Dina’ of ‘Girls Trip’ came in search of her. Tiffany Haddish never looked back ever since.
