It was a tough New Year’s Eve for many including Anderson Cooper who struggled mightily with tequila shots as well as NBC’s NYE special where Chrissy Teigen’s eye nearly got gouged out by Leslie Jones. Tiffany Haddish also had a rough New Year’s Eve when she bombed so hard during her stand-up show that people walked out and her excuse wasn’t the best.
Haddish’s show on NYE was at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, Florida, where tickets for the show ranged from $50 to $250 plus fees. Tiffany admittedly had been partying until seven in the morning the day of the New Year’s Eve show and said, “Ciroc was still in her system.” Who among us hasn’t?
Then a few hours later after this Instagram post, Tiffany not only flubbed some jokes, but completely forgot parts of her comedy routine. “I really wanted to talk about some stuff and can’t remember none of it,” Haddish said during her set.
According to a viewer named Andrew Chestnut who drove from Virginia to Miami, he said he was invited on stage to tell jokes by Tiffany after she wasn’t getting the job done.
Others voiced their disappointment over Tiffany’s comedy performance.
After some of the audience walked out, Tiffany invited those who stayed to move up to the empty seats. At one point during her set, Haddish said, “This is weird for me. Now, this is going to be on TMZ or whatever.” The actress was correct as it was on TMZ about 12 hours later with video of the performance. Haddish talked about her mother getting out of the mental institution and also chugged Ciroc during her comedy set.
The Girls Trip actress apologized on Tuesday with a tweet captioned: “Yes this happened. I wish it was better Miami. I prayed on it and I have a strong feeling this will never happened again.”
Let’s hope Tiffany rebounds and delivers the quality comedy stand-up that made her a star.
