Tiffany Haddish to Headline Comedy Special on Netflix

Special to Debut Globally in 2019

Comedian Tiffany Haddish will be featured in an original hour-long stand-up comedy special. Haddish will tape the special in early 2019 and it will premiere globally later in the year. 

Haddish, whose performance in last year’s “Girls’ Trip” earned her wide acclaim, can currently be seen opposite Tracy Morgan on TBS comedy “The Last O.G.,” and will soon star in “Night School,” “The Oath,” and “Nobody’s Fool.”  She will also voice the character Tuca in the upcoming Netflix adult animated series “Tuca & Bertie.”

“Tiffany Haddish is a force,” said Lisa Nishimura, VP of Original Documentary and Comedy. “Hilariously funny, brash and self-effacing, she’s an incredible artist who is winning over audiences while breaking barriers, and we are tremendously proud that she will showcase her formidable talent on Netflix.”
