Tiffany Haddish pulled up to a sold-out gig for NYE, but little did she know that 2019 wouldn’t greet her the way she expected.
While doing stand up in Miami at the James L. Knight Center an onlooking crowd would begin to empty the venue, boo her off stage, and ultimately drink a bottle of Ciroc with her to celebrate her woes.
It sucks that she bombed her set, caught on that the audience wasn’t connecting with her jokes, and forgot the rest of her routine, but we all make mistakes and we should definitely expect Haddish to make one hell of “come back” from this epic fail.
I went to go see if @TiffanyHaddish was actually funny. I ended up doing this. Conclusion: She is not funny. Horrible show. In her defense, she said she was having a rough night. She didn’t have to be up there. She ended up inviting me up on stage to tell jokes. 🤦🏾♂️😂 pic.twitter.com/Ze1BPzeY9S

For sure, the #SheReady comedian was embarrassed AF. After noticing that her jokes about her mom being institutionalized and always giving her family bread just weren’t hitting, Haddish attempted to switch gears but it was only a failed attempt at comedic recovery.
Who knows? Maybe she was buckling under pressure. Comedic legend, Katt Williams did come at her neck and claimed that Haddish has no comedic skill set in a recent interview on Frank and Wanda In the Morning where he stated,
“[Haddish has] been doing comedian since she was 16. You can’t tell me your favorite Tiffany Haddish joke. Why? Because she ain’t done a tour yet. She ain’t done a special. She has not proven the ability to tell jokes, back to back for an hour…”
OR NAH! She was still sauced after 24 hours of partying stupid hard. All we do know is that it is hard to maintain face on NYE even if your Tiffany “She Ain’t Ready” Haddish.

Still, she embraced the humiliation and addressed the situation while on stage. Haddish said, “This is weird for me. Now, this is going to be on TMZ or whatever…” And of course the most savage “news network” picked up the story.
TMZ also reported that Haddish lowkey resorted to reading jokes off of her iPad. A rookie move for a comedian who lived in her car during her 20s while in her early days of comedy.
Some 200,000 plus views later of her dropping the ball on stage, Haddish would also take to Twitter to address the comedic mishap. She tweeted promising to never allow this to happen again,
“Yes this happened. I wish it was better Miami. I prayed on it and I have a strong feeling this will never happen again…”
