What is Tiffany Haddish's net worth? Here's how the stand-up comic built fortune after financial troubles
In 2019, Haddish took on a voice-acting role in 'The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part'
Tiffany Haddish’s Netflix stand-up series, featuring six comedians personally chosen by her, is returning for a second season and is set to film with an audience this weekend.
The 41-year-old streamer has renewed 'Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready' and the shooting happened in Long Beach, California. It will release on Netflix on February 1, 2021. Now Haddish's fans want to know how much money this diva has made.
Born on December 3, 1979, in Los Angeles, Haddish's father was an immigrant and her mother owned a small business. Her father left the family when she was three years old, leaving her mother to raise the children. In 1988, when Haddish was eight years old, her mother was involved in a serious car accident, damaging her brain and triggering schizophrenic episodes. This made the next two years incredibly difficult for Haddish and her half-siblings.
She spent her childhood in foster care and was left homeless three times as an adult, forcing her to live out in her car. Haddish’s first big financial move was to get her mom out of a mental institution, she told GQ. After spending three months in the hospital for treatment after the accident, she came out “an entirely different person” — abusive and volatile, Haddish said.
Her first big break came in 2006, when she was a contestant on the television comedy competition show 'Who’s Got Jokes?'
Two years later she appeared on 'Def Comedy Jam' and the reality show spoof 'Reality Bites Back'. Around this time, Haddish was cast in many sitcoms. She also acted in films like 'Meet the Spartans' (2008) and 'The Janky Promoters' (2009), which was written by and starred rapper and actor Ice Cube.
Haddish came into the limelight after she got recurring roles on the spoof comedy series 'Real Husbands of Hollywood' (2013 and 14), starring Kevin Hart; Tyler Perry’s 'If Loving You Is Wrong' (2014 and 15); and 'The Carmichael Show' (2015 to 17). She became a sought-after guest for talk shows, appearing on 'Chelsea Lately', hosted by Chelsea Handler; 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' and 'The Arsenio Hall Show'.
Haddish starred in TV comedy special, 'Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood', after which she became the first female African-American comedian to host 'Saturday Night Live' (SNL), and published a memoir titled 'The Last Black Unicorn', all in 2017. For her work on SNL, she won an Emmy Award for outstanding guest actress in a comedy series.
Her net worth stands at $6 million. She has also emerged as a talented voice actor after working on various animated productions and video games.
In 2019, she took on a voice-acting role in 'The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part'. She followed this up with another voice acting role in the Netflix animated series 'Tuca & Bertie'. Later, she became the host of 'Kids Say the Darndest Things', a revival of the classic show that was once hosted by Bill Cosby.
That year, she also released another comedy special named 'Entitled Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready'. The special focused less on Haddish and more on up-and-coming comedians that Haddish wanted to help reach fame. In 2020, Haddish starred in 'Like a Boss'.
