The stunning and brilliant American actress, comedian and writer, Tiffany Haddish, was born in 1979. She had a stressful, eventful, and hard early life. Her family was situated in California. Her mother was a small business owner and her father was an immigrant from Eritrea. Her parents split when she was just three years old. She would reconnect with her father later in life yet miss him growing up. Her mother suffered severe brain damage after a car accident. This forever changed her mother and she began suffering from multiple mental illnesses, including schizophrenia. Haddish was the head of the family after her mother’s car accident.
It was around that time when she was 10 years old that she noticed her talent for making people burst out laughing. At the age of 12, she and her brothers and sisters were placed in foster care. Tiffany Haddish states that comedy was what helped her deal with being all alone in a strange new place. Due to the diligence and sacrifices of her grandmother, she reconnected with her siblings three years later. When she was 17 she was given the option of going to therapy or attending a comedy camp.
