NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERFrom 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 other foster kids she lived with wouldnt beat her up, and she might even get a boyfriend. Or at least she could make enough moneyas the paid school mascot and in-demand Bar Mitzvah hype womanto get her hair and nails done, so then she might get a boyfriend. None of that worked (and shes still single), but it allowed Tiffany to imagine a place for herself where she could do something she loved for a living: comedy. Tiffany cant avoid being funnyits just who she is, whether shes plotting shocking, jaw-dropping revenge on ...

The Last Black Unicorn Reviews
If you read one inspirational book this year, let it be this one.
Few people are intuitively aware that success has many facets. Most times, success is measured by how much money a person makes, the awards she wins, the accolades she amasses, or the powerful connections she commands. Tiffany Haddish has achieved all of those kinds of successes (and I’m sure that it’s not even close to what is to come for her in the future). But, Tiffany has experienced another kind of success that often goes uns ...more
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.
Tiffany Haddish is a funny person and a funny comedian, but this book was vastly disappointing.
I listened to the audiobook, and I really expected a killer narration. Every single other audiobook autobiography of an actor/comedian that I've ever listened to was flawlessly narrated. I mean, it's their own words and they're actors, right? Well, not here. Tiffany's narration was so odd. Really choppy, really strangely read, like she had trouble with her own words. It honestly sounded like bad acting ...more
I definitely recommend listening to The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish. Firstly she's hysterical and can definitely tell a joke and/or a story. The memoir traces her life from her youth to current her success. Each story reveals something about her character and her growth into the woman she is today. Some of the stories are draw dropping and snatched my edges, but as a whole it's very interesting. The only real complaints I had with The Last Black Unicorn is that the story is told very q ...more

🌟 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 channeling a lot of her own self for that character.

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 mother, she spent years in foster care, was molest ...more
First off, I want to say that I love Tiffany Haddish. I think she's someone who is famous that is always authentically themselves and she always will be. She's a newer breakout star, so I didn't know much about her but this really shed some light into her past life and it was incredibly real and raw.
This book starts out with Tiffany's family and jobs as she was growing up. She didn't have the best life - her mom was (still kinda is) crazy and Tiffany never quite felt accepted in the fami ...more
Run, don't walk to the audio version of this. The song!!!!!!!!!
O-m-g!!!! How did I not know about Tiffany Haddish?! She is smoking hot!!! For the beginning, I wanted to give her an enormous hug -- by the end, I realized that she doesn't need anyone's hugs -- she does a-m-a-z-i-n-g on her own!
"In my life, and I hope and yours, I want us to grow roses out of the poop."
My absolute fave parts:
a) The ending crescendo of how she's made tools of everything!!
b) The song!!!!!!!!!
❤ The entire book is gene ...more
