Tiffany Haddish Is The Last Black Unicorn

This Saturday, Tiffany Haddish will bring her signature brand of humor to NBC’s Saturday Night Live. She will be the second African American woman comedian to host the show, following in Maya Rudolph’s footsteps and the first to take over hosting duties not being a former cast member. Haddish, who is of African American and Eritrean descent, made her mark with a breakthrough performance in this summer’s box office hit Girls Trip. In addition to her acting and comedy, she is releasing a book called The Last Black Unicorn via Simon and Schuster press. Her publisher describes the book as “a sidesplitting, hysterical, edgy, and unflinching collection of (extremely) personal essays, as fearless as the author herself.” Tiffany Haddish will host Saturday Night Live on November 11, 2017, and her book drops in December, just in time for the holidays.
