Publisher's Summary

From stand-up comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish comes The Last Black Unicorn, a hilarious, edgy, and heart-wrenching collection of autobiographical essays that will leave you laughing through tears.

Tiffany Haddish grew up in one of the poorest parts of South Central Los Angeles. Her mother wound up with a debilitating brain injury after surviving a car accident. Tiffany never fit in anywhere: not in the households she rotated through in the foster care system and certainly not at the nearly all white high school she had to ride the bus an hour to attend. As an illiterate ninth grader, Tiffany did everything she could to survive. After a multitude of jobs, she finally realized that she had talent in an area she never would have suspected: comedy. Tiffany faced the 'routine' hindrances of climbing the entertainment business ladder - but had the added obstacles of sex, race, and class in her way. But she got there. She's humble, grateful, down to earth, and funny as hell. She still cleans the toilet the way she was shown by a foster mom who worked as a maid, and she still rolls her joints the way one of her foster dads taught her.

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: It's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

Raw

Most memorable and favorite character was Roscoe. Tiffany has definitely done what others would never do or admit to doing. I love that she's 100% transparent and unapologetic about it. I wish more people were like her...living their truth whether good or bad.

Sad it ended

This book was amazingly raw. I loved it and I love Tiffany even more.
I NEVER revisit an audiobook but as soon as I’m done telling you how amazing this book was I’m going to restart it all over again.

I almost peed!

I loved every minute of this book. Tiffany Haddish is hilarious. Although her story is sometimes tragic, she's able to put a comedic spin on it. She makes you realize that no matter where you come from or how bad you life may be you can still rise.

The last black unicorn indeed!

I loved this book. I particularly enjoyed listening to Tiffany's voice as she narrated the story. And hearing about her experiences makes me admire her even more. Yes, she's a talented comic but most of all she's a super strong woman for having the fortitude to deal with her traumatic childhood & Adult experiences rather allowing these bad memories to envelope her and drown her. I wish her continued success, joy and happiness in all of her endeavors. This book has many life lessons & will revitalize your life!

Lots of laughs

"Grow roses out of the poop."

Lots of laughs and fun listening to Haddish narrate her book. She's managed to add humour to the dark moments in her life.

Haddish is a great entertainer.
