Tiffany Haddish is one of the biggest comedians in the world right now, but you might not have realized that if you were at her show in Miami on New Year’s Eve. The comic bombed, hard, and to make matters worse, audience members caught every forgotten punchline and booing audience member on camera.
During her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! the comedian dished on the full story behind the waking nightmare she’d lived through just a few months earlier. Describing a wild night out with friends that she compared to when Pinnochio’s friends convince him to go to Fun Island and they all turn into donkeys.
She says fans probably could’ve figured out the show would be bad when they saw her Instagram video promoting it. Below is the video in question, which you can also find by looking up the word “hungover” in the dictionary.
In her own words, she was not ready. Seriously, just watching that video makes me feel hungover. But Haddish has since rebounded, going on to finish the remainder of her tour (at which, she says, she no longer allows cell phones, scheduling a makeup show in Miami which will donate the proceeds to charity, and appearing on Kimmel with what technically counts as a bevy of male strippers.
So, it looks like she’s ready again. She also offers up a list of her favorite male strip clubs, which almost makes this whole ordeal worthwhile for everyone.
