The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish

The Last Black Unicorn

From stand-up comedian, actress, and breakout star of Girls Trip, Tiffany Haddish, comes The Last Black Unicorn, a sidesplitting, hysterical, edgy, and unflinching collection of (extremely) personal essays, as fearless as the author herself.Growing up in one of the poorest neighborhoods of South Central Los Angeles, Tiffany learned to survive by making people laugh. If she could do that, then her classmates would let her copy their homework, the ...

    This is definitely worth reading. Haddish is incredibly funny, smart and observant. She has lived a hard life which makes her success all the more admirable and deserved. There are places where I wanted more depth. The book is short and reads fast, sometimes too fast. But the funny parts will bring you to tears. So will the painful parts. I am not a fan of books by comedians is all. They just don’t work as cohesive narratives.

    Indomitable spirit. Which historical figures come to mind when you hear that phrase? Mother Teresa? Gandhi, maybe? Those are two of the people who pop into my head right away.And now, whenever I hear those words, I will also think of Tiffany Haddish.I was late to the Haddish fandom. I somehow missed her years of stand up. It wasn’t until I saw the preview for Girls Trip and was like, “WHO IS THAT HILARIOUS WOMAN?” that I became aware of her...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest🌟 I read this for the Yule Bingo Challenge, for the category of Tonks: strong heroine. For more info on this challenge, click here. 🌟I knew I wanted to read this book the moment I watched her interview with Trevor Noah. She seemed like such a fun, wonderful, crazy person. I watched Girls Trip recently, you know, for "research," and in that movie, I feel like Tiffany Haddish is channelin...

    If you looked up the word Authentic on the internet, a giant picture of Tiffany Haddish should be next to it.A lot of people had never heard of Tiffany Haddish until her star making role in last years Girls Trip, but Tiffany has been on her grind for decades. Tiffany is an overnight sensation that was 20 plus years in the making. Tiffany like most great comedians has had a rough life. Abandoned by her father, raised by a mentally ill and abusive ...

    I was nervous that a Tiffany Haddish book wouldn't feel like Tiffany Haddish, but happily no one has tried to change her. This book is so clearly 100% Tiffany, which is wise. If you've seen her on screen you would know if there was any attempt to dress her up or change her voice. A lot of this book is funny, but a lot of it really isn't. A rough childhood, troubled relationships with men, and plenty of encounters with misogyny in comedy. What you...

    So good it's not even funny.Well, actually, it is really, really funny.Listen to the audiobook if you can. I didn't know Tiffany Haddish's work before, but I try to listen to a variety of genres and this book had a great rating. I'm not surprised. This woman's story is inspiring and heartbreaking. She is hilarious and so, so real. 5 stars.

    Please Note: I DNF'd this book at about the 40% mark. I listened to the audiobook version. This book was terrible. First, it wasn't written well at all. The story was extremely choppy and rushed. There were quite a few recountings of very ugly things that occurred in Haddish's life, but were told in an overly light-hearted manner that came across unseemly and inappropriate. The book detailed some of the obstacles that Haddish had to overcome prio...

    I LOVE Tiffany Haddish. So, I’m totally biased.I laughed so hard at this book but it also had a great heart to it. Tiffany has been through a lot in her life but she chooses to see the good and positive in it. Tiffany is a great storyteller so she could make a mundane story interesting and funny. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to everyone.I also found out that Tucker Max co-wrote the book and that’s is an interesting and perfect ...

    I gave Tiffany Haddish's book 5 stars because I loved her realness about her life, struggles and trying to survive. This book had me laughing, mad, asking why and smiling. I hope that Tiffany life blooms into great success. She deserves it and so much more. Blessed!

    For me, the things that she had to go through are unimaginable; both the positive things and the negative things. Perhaps if I read them in a fiction book or a watched them in a movie, I would've said that can only happen in movies. it's an eye opener
