Tiffany Haddish Sets Next Stand-Up Special at Netflix
Tiffany Haddish is snagging more TV time, this time showing off her comedic chops. According to reports, the 38-year-old comedian and actress has snagged her next stand-up special at Netflix.
The hourlong special will be filmed in early 2019. Netflix vp original documentary and comedy Lisa Nishimura said Tuesday in a statement:
“Tiffany Haddish is a force. Hilariously funny, brash and self-effacing, she’s an incredible artist who is winning over audiences while breaking barriers, and we are tremendously proud that she will showcase her formidable talent on Netflix.”
No word on what Netflix paid the Girls Trip break-out star. However, it’s rumored that the streaming service paid millions to Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Jerry Seinfeld.
Comedian Mo’nique called for a Netflix boycott earlier this year, claiming that they don’t pay women comedians fairly.
Haddish previously taped a stand-up special She Ready for Showtime. Her upcoming film work in 2018 includes Night School, The Oath and Nobody’s Fool. She’s also landed voice work for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, The Second Part and The Secret Life of Pets 2.
