Tiffany Haddish causes side-splitting laughter in just about every role she plays.

The actress was the breakout star of 2017’s Girls Trip, is set to do the same in upcoming comedy Night School, and currently goes toe-to-toe with Tracy Morgan in The Last O.G., which was renewed for a second season in April.

At the moment, Haddish is focused on hustling, building her empire and setting an example for young people in foster care.
