Tiffany Haddish is an American comedian, actress, and dancer.
Her father, Tsihaye Reda Haddish, was Eritrean, a country that was once part of Ethiopia; Tiffany has said that he was of Ethiopian Jewish descent. Her mother, Leola (Wright), is American (African-American), and of the Jehovah’s Witness religion.
Tiffany has been described as being an “African-American/Jewish girl from the ‘hood.” A popular line in biographies also states that she is “as sexy as Halle Berry, as funny as Jim Carrey, raw like Richard Pryor with the comedic timing of Lucille Ball, smooth like Eddie Murphy, Jewish as Whoopi Goldberg, and hopes to someday have money like Oprah.” [Whoopi Goldberg is not actually Jewish]
Tiffany became a naturalized citizen of Eritrea on May 22, 2019, in a ceremony in the country.
