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
Tiffany Haddish is a one of a kind, strong, beautiful, hilarious woman. What she has gone through in her life has truly made her into what she is today, but it’s still heartbreaking that she had to go through it. The first half of her book was about her childhood, her family, her introduction to comedy, and her relationships. I found myself laughing aloud so hard that I had tears running down my face. I couldn’t believe what was coming out of her mouth. It wasn’t just about the story either – it ...more
I LOVE Tiffany Haddish. So, I’m totally biased.
I laughed so hard at this book but it also had a great heart to it. Tiffany has been through a lot in her life but she chooses to see the good and positive in it. Tiffany is a great storyteller so she could make a mundane story interesting and funny. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to everyone.
I also found out that Tucker Max co-wrote the book and that’s is an interesting and perfect combo. A guilty pleasure of mine is Tucker Max and I f ...more
Well. I do love Tiffany Haddish. I have been so happy to see how popular she has gotten and wish her nothing but success. That said, this memoir was lacking in a lot of ways for me. Parts of it were funny and parts just made me want to find her and give her a hug. This entire memoir is raw. It is also real and you are going to read about a lot of things that may make you cringe and wonder how in the world did Haddish even get through the things she did. I think that the narrative style is ultima ...more
I spent the whole time I listened to this audiobook thinking about how to explain why I didn't like it. Haddish is smart, hilarious, and has undeniable presence. I bought this because I saw her on with Trevor Noah and laughed until I cried. Haddish has a lot to say and quite a life story to tell, but it didn't work in a book format for me.
I've seen her tell most of the main anecdotes in the second half of the book, but her delivery on stage was markedly different, more engaging, and the bits ti ...more
I haven't seen Girls Trip, The Carmichael Show, Keanu, or If Loving You is Wrong. Big surprise - I'm not a raucous-rude-comedy-appreciating viewer. Not that there's anything wrong with those who are, of course.
I became a Haddish Fan Girl the first time I viewed the 5 -7 minute video clip of Haddish on the Jimmy Kimmel show doing her bit on Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and the swamp tour. It was the funniest, most brilliant bit I've seen in a long, long time. On that basis, I checked LBU out of m ...more
I love Tiffany Haddish! She seems like the kind of celebrity who would be very down to earth, and fun to be friends with. And she's had a helluva life. I identify with that in a big way. The whole time I was reading it, it was like listening to her tell the stories. She writes the way she talks. I legitimately ordered this book immediately after watching her interview with Trevor Noah, and I'm so glad I did! Even though I had to wait a whole month to get it because Amazon was sold out! Which is ...more
..This book was funny as shit!!.. IMO..get the audiobook..listening to her tell this story is priceless!!!
This is definitely worth reading. Haddish is incredibly funny, smart and observant. She has lived a hard life which makes her success all the more admirable and deserved. There are places where I wanted more depth. The book is short and reads fast, sometimes too fast. But the funny parts will bring you to tears. So will the painful parts. I am not a fan of books by comedians is all. They just don’t work as cohesive narratives.
