How Tiffany Haddish Achieved a Net Worth of $4 Million

Tiffany Haddish struggled for success as a comedian and actress. She finally had her breakthrough role last year and this may be the best year yet for Ms. Haddish. The comedian and actress is a rising star in Hollywood. She already has an estimated net worth of $4 million and it should grow bigger as her success continues to grow. Here’s how Tiffany Haddish achieved a net worth of $4 million.

Difficult Childhood

Tiffany Haddish was born in Los Angeles on December 3, 1979. Her dad Tsihaye was an Eritrean refugee. Her mom Leola owned a small business. When Tiffany was just 3 years old, her dad left the family. Her mom would remarry and have two more daughters and two more sons. When Tiffany was just 9 years old, her mother had a terrible car accident and suffered brain damage which led to schizophrenia. Tiffany later learned that her stepfather messed with the car’s brakes and intended for the kids to be in the car with their mom. At just 9 years old, Tiffany had to take care of her younger siblings. Eventually the children were separated and placed in foster care until their grandmother could get custody. Tiffany was already 15 years old by that point.

Tiffany struggled in school but found she could make people laugh. She was the school mascot at El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills. Tiffany also fell in love with drama. She excelled in performing Shakespeare’s Monologues. When she graduated from High School, Tiffany’s social worker gave her an ultimatum. She could attend psychiatric sessions or she could attend the Laugh Factory’s Comedy Camp. It was an easy choice for Tiffany. Tiffany loved the comedy camp. She found a safe place where she could be funny and escape the problems from her childhood. She also enjoyed working with comedians including Richard Pryor, Dane Cook and the Wayans Brothers who volunteered in a mentorship program with the camp.

Breakthrough in Comedy

Tiffany struggled to make her way to success as a comedian in Hollywood. At one point, she had to live out of her car. She did get some breaks though. In 2005, Tiffany appeared on “Pimp My Ride” and had a guest appearance on “That’s So Raven”. The following year, she appeared in the Comedy Competition, “Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes?”. The appearance helped her get noticed. She got guest roles on shows including “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “My Name is Earl”.

Television and Film

With her comic timing and wit, Tiffany Haddish was able to land small parts in television shows and in film. In 2008, she got a small part in “Meet the Spartans” and the following year in “Janky Promoters”. She also appeared on “Nick Cannon’s Short Circuit”, “Def Comedy Jam” and “New Girl”. In 2013, Tiffany landed the role of Tiffany in “Real Husbands of Hollywood”, the BET parody of the Real Housewives franchise, with Kevin Hart and Nick Cannon. The following year she starred in Oprah Winfrey’s series “If Loving You is Wrong. Tiffany left after the first season when she was cast in CBS’s “The Carmichael Show” for three seasons. She also starred in the comedy film “Keanu”.

Big Break

Tiffany’s biggest break yet was in 2017 when she was cast in the movie “Girls Trip” with Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall. The movie was a box office success and critics likened Tiffany to Melissa McCarthy when she appeared in the movie “Bridesmaids”. They predicted this role would skyrocket Tifffany Haddish’s fame. She won the BET Award for Best Actress and the Black Reel Awards for Best Supporting Actress and Outstanding Breakthrough Performance.

Success

The critics were right. “Girls Trip” certainly helped Tiffany Haddish’s career. She got a Showtime Comedy Special, “Tiffany Haddish: She’s Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood”. Tiffany became the first black female comedian to host “Saturday Night Live” in November 2017. She published her memoire, “The Last Black Unicorn”, which was a New York Times Best Seller. In 2018, Tiffany starred opposite Tracy Morgan in the TBS sitcom “The Last O.G.”. She also starred in the movie “Night School” with Kevin Hart and hosted the MTV Music and Movie Awards.
