She ain’t ready! It appears things didn’t go too well for Tiffany Haddish last night (New Years Eve) in Miami. It seems she wasn’t … er… “connecting” with the audience and some even started leaving during her show.

Haddish’s set  was at the James L. Knight Center and it was a full house. Unfortunately, as we just told you, something wasn’t working. She wasn’t funny. Nobody was laughing. Hell, at one point, as some people started leaving, she said:

“This is weird for me. Now, this is going to be on TMZ or whatever.”

WARNING: Graphic Language

Yeah, you’re right about that, Tiff! Anyway, during her routine, Haddish talks about her mom getting out of a mental institution … she says she told her mom to punch her in the back and burp her. She also griped about her family asking her for money. She says her sister wanted a refrigerator and a new stove, but Tiffany said she told her sister she had just paid her rent, so she just gave her a cooler.

Tiffany changed things up, cracked open a bottle of Ciroc and started drinking with the audience.

She did respond to her critics on Twitter afterwards.

For some reason, we can’t help but think of what Katt Williams had to say about Tiffany not being NOT being ready for prime time.

“She has not proven the ability to tell jokes back-to-back for an hour to nobody, Katt said back in September on the “Frank and Wanda in the Morning” show.

And for good measure, he added:

“She had a white husband for all of the 14 years she’s been doing comedy and then all of a sudden divorced him. Then said he abused her. Then wrote a book. Then said he didn’t and then now we’re at Brad Pitt,” he said, alluding to Haddish’s joke that she was dating Brad Pitt. Williams implied that jokes like that were the rising comedian’s way of appealing to white audiences.”

    I wonder if other famous comedians will write her jokes for her upcoming dates to help her because I don’t think she can do it on her own.

  2. The first time I ever heard of or saw Haddish was in the movie Girl’s Trip. If you think profanity, vulgarity and out and out silliness is funny, then this is the movie for you. The only reason I decided to see the movie was that Queen Latifa was in it. Even she couldn’t save this piece of trash. I haven’t seen anything Ms. Haddish does since that rates the kind of accolades she receives. She’s just not funny, nor is she a very good actor. Over the top, extra, and trying too hard to act like the stereotypical black ghetto hoodrat, yes. But good? Not even close.

  3. Wow! People are so harsh. Every comedian has bombed on stage. Sometimes it is just not their night. I do understand that this was New Year’s Eve, but give her a break. All of us have had a day on the job where we were not at our best. I think once she does some self-reflection, she will recover.

  4. I really hated her in Nobody’s Fool and Girls Trip. She ‘plays’ the same character in every movie–the loud, ghetto, over the top, stereotypical black woman who is just how the jews who run hollywood like to portray black women as. Monique had her run playing the stereotype, now it’s Tiffany’s turn. Say what you want about Whoopi, she’s always played roles that defied stereotypes. I think anybody who knows Tiffany’s childhood background are rooting for her but I would tell her to heed the history of hollywood and black comedians. Martin Lawrence, Dave Chappelle & Katt Williams have all had a taste of what is true in hollywood: they will build you up and place you on a pedestal just to later either watch you fall off or even push you off and laugh gleefully.

    When she cam to the Cleveland Improv in 2016, #TiffanyHaddish was not funny. Twerking and booty popping is NOT the same as telling jokes. #KattWilliams was right!!!! #SheAintReady for the big leagues.

    I’ve always felt from the first time I saw her in “girls trip” that she was a little over the top, and I did not find her particularly funny. I notice that a lot of her stuff seems contrived, and goes overboard using “black slang” to appeal to the black audiences. I’m not a fan, but wish her all the best

    I said it when she wanted Meryl Streep to play her mother in a movie, she has issues about being Black. Has no one noticed that her bf’s in movies are anything but Black. And if they are in the beginning they will not be in the end, oh yeah no kissing.
    This failure to capture the audience happened because she does not have a true connection with Black people, and does not care to have one. I am sure her advisors have told her this. No worries though Tiffany, You are not the first Black women to capture the attention of a White audience rather than the blessings of Black audience.

    We thought her latest movies were funny – Nobody’s Fool and Night School. If Michael Jordan can go after his baseball dream; Tiffany can go after her standup dream. She might get better or come to realize that standup ain’t her strong suit. Anyway, I wish this beautiful lady the best.
