Union Board presents comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish at IU Auditorium as part of IU's Bicentennial kickoff celebration. Currently playing opposite Tracy Morgan on the TBS comedy series The Last O.G. and known for her breakout role in the smash comedy Girls Trip, Haddish made history in 2017 by becoming the first black female stand-up comedian to host Saturday Night Live, earning her an Emmy for "Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series."
Haddish's journey and life experiences have inspired her comedy and sense of humor both on and off stage. While growing up in foster care in South Central Los Angeles, her excessive talking and imaginary friends prompted her increasingly flustered social worker to steer her into stand-up by enrolling her in the Laugh Factory's Comedy Camp, a place for at-risk and underprivileged children, to transform negative energy into something positive. The experience was just the beginning of her comedy career and now, with multiple high-profile projects and buzzworthy appearances to her name, Haddish has established herself as one of the most sought-after comedic actresses and performers.
