Tiffany Haddish gets support from fellow comedians after stand-up stumble
She ready for some support from her comedy peers.
After making headlines earlier this week for performing a poorly received New Year’s Eve comedy set in Miami, Girls Trip actress Tiffany Haddish has received a wealth of encouraging social media messages from her comedian colleagues.
“This is the price of fame when you’re a comic. I was so lucky that there wasn’t a Snapchat/IG when I was starting out on my first big tour. No REAL comic never bombs,” Kathy Griffin tweeted Tuesday. “You are a hilarious, incredible talent @TiffanyHaddish and I can’t wait to see you live! Ignore the haters!”
“To be honest New Year’s Eve sets are haaaaard as f—!” Marlon Wayans added. “I had a weird ass ending to my show last night too. Stopped mid joke to do countdown then… GOOD NIGHT.”
According to Deadline, fans walked out of Haddish’s performance after she fumbled her material, reportedly forgetting some of her jokes while failing to land others. Audience members shared their reactions online following the show, including a video which sees a ticket holder approaching the stage to film himself dissing Haddish mid-set.
Haddish previously tweeted a link to an article that dubbed her Dec. 31 set a “bomb,” adding that she agreed with the assessment while promising fans she wouldn’t let them down in the future.
“Yes this happened,” she wrote. “I wish it was better Miami. I prayed on it and I have a strong feeling this will never happened again.”
Haddish’s She Ready tour continues Jan. 25 at The Mirage’s Terry Fatore Theatre through March 21 at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle. Tickets are available here. Read on for more celebrity messages to Haddish.
