“An inspiring story that manages to be painful, honest, shocking, bawdy and hilarious.” —The New York Times Book Review

From 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 wouldn’t beat her up, and she might even get a boyfriend. Or at least she could make enough money—as the paid school mascot and in-demand Bar Mitzvah hype woman—to get her hair and nails done, so then she might get a boyfriend.

None of that worked (and she’s still single), but it allowed Tiffany to imagine a place for herself where she could do something she loved for a living: comedy.

Tiffany can’t avoid being funny—it’s just who she is, whether she’s plotting shocking, jaw-dropping revenge on an ex-boyfriend or learning how to handle her newfound fame despite still having a broke person’s mind-set. Finally poised to become a household name, she recounts with heart and humor how she came from nothing and nowhere to achieve her dreams by owning, sharing, and using her pain to heal others.

By turns hilarious, filthy, and brutally honest, The Last Black Unicorn shows the world who Tiffany Haddish really is—humble, grateful, down-to-earth, and funny as hell. And now, she’s ready to inspire others through the power of laughter.

    Thanks for writing this whole heartedly. I was sharing your experience to my friends. They thought it was fiction. It is THAT interesting.
  • Caught myself laughing out loud!

    This book reads like Tiffany is chatting up with you! I loved her on Girls Trip and I had caught her a couple times on Chelsea lately I didn’t know about her life. This book really does go deep into her life even the uncomfortable parts! Which I really enjoyed because in the uncomfortable moments is where we can actually learn. Stop reading this review and read this book!

  • The Real Deal

    By Tishabird Smith
    The shock, pain, her real heart was put on the table. Like the gem she is, she entertained with comedy through the whole book. I cried laughing through my hurt for her past but she makes you laugh. I could hear her voice in every word. I know I screamed with excitement as she excelled and MADE IT ! So deserving, soooo amazing that her story went from rags to riches and she was able to clap back at all those jokers!!! Go Tiffany!!!
