This Saturday (Nov. 11th), Tiffany Haddish will make #HerStory as the first black female comedian to host Saturday Night Live.
It has been quite a year for Haddish, who broke out in stardom after her waggish lead in the summer stunner film, Girls Trip. Her remarkable performance gained wide applause due to her ability to rise alongside power actresses Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Regina Hall. The film became the first black directed/produced film to gross immensely at the domestic box office, hitting the monetary rate of $113.3 million.
With Taylor Swift performing as the musical guest for the night, Haddish is bound to bring a distinct tenor to late-night television on Saturday night, pending an uproar on social media. The following Saturday, Chance the Rapper and Eminem will take the leads of SNL, adding on to the sketch show’s audience reach goal.
Haddish was highly favored on the now-canceled sitcom, The Carmichael Show as Nekeisha the estranged wife of Bobby Carmichael, and has since continued to reign. She is set to co-star opposite Tracy Morgan in a forthcoming TBS show, The Last O.G., and will reunite with Girls Trip director Malcolm D. Lee in 2018 for comedy film Night School alongside Kevin Hart.
She is also releasing her book, The Last Black Unicorn, a collective a humorous personal essays, next month (December).
