In this uproariously funny and deeply moving collection of autobiographical essays, stand-up comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish shares her remarkable journey from the poverty-stricken streets of South Central Los Angeles to the bright lights of Hollywood.

Haddish’s childhood was marked by hardship and instability. After her mother suffered a debilitating brain injury in a car accident, Tiffany found herself navigating the foster care system, never quite fitting in. As an illiterate ninth grader attending a nearly all-white high school, she faced numerous challenges but never lost her determination to survive.

Through a series of odd jobs and life experiences, Haddish discovered her true calling: comedy. However, her path to success was not without its obstacles. As a woman of color from a low-income background, she faced the all-too-common barriers of sex, race, and class in the entertainment industry.

Despite the odds, Haddish persevered, remaining humble, grateful, and true to her roots. In “The Last Black Unicorn,” she fearlessly shares her pain, awkwardness, and triumphs, offering readers a side-splittingly hilarious and profoundly honest account of her life. Through her stories, Haddish inspires others to embrace their authentic selves and harness the power of laughter to overcome adversity.

Nominated for Best Spoken Word Grammy Award, “The Last Black Unicorn” is more than just a collection of essays; it is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the transformative power of humor. Haddish’s unique voice and indomitable spirit shine through on every page, making this a must-read for anyone seeking inspiration, laughter, and a reminder that even in the darkest of times, hope and humor can light the way.
