Gary Owens Agrees w/ Katt Williams Comments About Tiffany Haddish – She’s Not Known For Her Stand Up
“I see where Katt’s going with this, ‘cause when you say somebody’s the “Queen of Comedy,” you’re thinking stand up. Tiffany is not known as a stand up.
She’s pretty much known from Girl’s Trip and that’s what took her to another level. Very similar to Melissa McCarthy. She’s very much become the Black Melissa McCarthy. Melissa McCarthy came in with Bridesmaids.”
“She’s never been known for her stand up. Even though she’s been on Def Jam, and she had a Showtime special, and she just signed a deal with Netflix – you know, Katt did say something that was valid. He said tell me your favorite Tiffany Haddish joke. You can’t. She hasn’t done enough in the stand up realm that has stuck out.”
“Katt’s basically saying, ‘In my opinion, Tiffany wasn’t funny as a stand up’… but I like Tiffany a lot. I do. But as far as stand up, I don’t think she’s the funniest stand up out there. But I’m not knocking her at all.”
“People will twist your words to say Tiffany isn’t funny. That’s not what I said at all. I said I don’t think that she’s the funniest stand up out there in my opinion.”
