Last New Year’s Eve, Tiffany Haddish made headlines for “bombing” during a standup show in Miami. At the time, she tweeted a response to acknowledge that it happened and that she “prayed on it” and felt it would not happen again. Now, almost a year later, Haddish has used her new Netflix special, “Tiffany Haddish: Black Mitzvah,” to go into more detail about what went wrong in Miami, Fla.
“I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Miami, but this is where the devil is,” Haddish said on stage. “I didn’t know; I found out.”
She shared she landed in the Florida city at around 10 p.m. on Dec. 30, the night before her scheduled show, and she had a lot of friends in town because they all wanted to be at her show. “Anybody got that one friend — that one friend that can motivate you to do s— you ain’t got no damn business doing?” Haddish said. “You ever see that movie ‘Pinocchio’? Pinocchio was trying to go to school; he was trying to be a good little boy. And then his friend came up … and then they turned in f—ing donkeys — they turned into jackasses. That’s what the f— happened to me!”
Haddish said she had a friend who called her to entice her into coming out, in part to actually celebrate the big year she’d just had, which included — Haddish reminded the crowd — becoming the first African American female comedian to not only host “Saturday Night Live” but also win a guest comedy actress Emmy for that host stint, as well as writing a book and then being nominated for a Grammy for “reading out-loud” (aka the audiobook) after struggling with literacy during her child and teen years.
Haddish admitted she was “out there partying my ass off, dancing, drinking — drinking more than I had ever drank in my entire life. I was drinking everything; anything somebody handed to me, I was drinking it.” She remembered being “so messed up my kidneys failed on me” and “was pretty sure I peed in the Uber.”
