Watch: Tiffany Haddish Makes History on ‘Saturday Night Live’ And Shines As The First Black Female Comedian to Host
Tiffany Haddish was magical on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Oh and she made history too. Kudos, missy!

In the sketch comedy show’s 42-year history, Tiffany is only the 13th Black woman…and the first Black female stand-up comic to ever host the show.

How is that even possible? Can someone look into that? It’s embarrassing. And yet they have some mediocre folks on CONSTANTLY, it seems.

During her opening monologue, the ever-rising comedienne joked about how after the success of the hit film Girls Trip, she Googled herself, discovering that she was supposedly worth $2 million. She found this quite surprising.

“I googled myself – it said I’m worth $2 million! What do I need to do to get this money? Fake my own death? Do I have to Tupac this and move to Tyler Perry Island?”

TYLER PERRY ISLAND. Dying.

“I grew up in foster care,” she explained. “So I want to thank anyone who paid taxes between 1990 and 1999.” Life in group homes with mostly black and Hispanic kids wasn’t the easiest come 11:30 on Saturday nights, she noted.

“Trying to convince them that Dana Carvey was just as funny as Damon Wayans was a problem. I got stabbed twice, in a bunk bud.”

Oh and she had a “Tiff Tip” for men, “If you got your thing-thing out and she got all her clothes on YOU’RE WRONG.”



Accurate. Someone should pass that tidbit along to all of the Hollywood perverts.

So, we are forgiving her for those unfortunate comments about Bill Cosby then? A while back, she joked, “I still want to work with Bill Cosby […] I don't care, I'll drink the juice. I'll drink the juice. I'll take a nap. I don't give a damn. But seriously, I would love for him to play my grandfather in something."

Hm. She did also bring us that hilarious story about Will and Jada Smith though. So, we guess she deserves a spot in our good graces. Just don’t pull any more Chris Rock-level stunts, yeah? 

Take a look at her funniest skits of the night:


Congrats again, Tiffany! Hope you pop up in many, many projects in the very near future. Keep on shining.
