Tiffany Haddish Rocks Sold out Crowd at Borgata Hotel Casino
On Friday, February 28, Tiffany Haddish performed in front of a sold-out crowd at Borgata Hotel Casino. Before her show, she did a meet-and-greet with fans, with the proceeds going to support her foster kids’ foundation.
Godfrey, who opened for Haddish, has appeared on BET, VH1, Comedy Central, and feature films, such as Soul Plane, Original Gangstas, Zoolander, and Johnson Family Vacation. He was also a spokesperson for 7 Up during the popular ‘7up yours’ advertising campaign. He was also a cast member on the first season of The It Factor, a reality television show. Currently, he is a regular performer at the comedy club Comedy Cellar in New York City. He is also known for doing the voices of Mr. Stubborn and Mr. Tall (Season 2) in The Mr. Men Show and hosting the FOX game show Bullseye. Godfrey also hosted his own radio show on SiriusXM until he parted ways with the show on July 1, 2019. He now hosts and owns a podcast called In Godfrey We Trust on the Gas Digital Network. He is also known for collaborating with others. He set the tone for all the comics afterward.
But Haddish is one of a kind. There’s a reason why she’s a New York Times best selling author. There’s a reason why she’s the first black, woman comedian to host “Saturday Night Live.” There’s a reason why people left “Girl’s Trip” raving about her, instead of the icons she co-starred with. She’s just that gifted — a comedy legend in the making.
Her show, part of the #SheReady tour, felt more like a conversation amongst friends than it did a comedy show, but make no mistake — she had the audience crying with laughter. Attending Haddish’s show is like having a girls’ sleepover with your funniest friend. She’s the down-to-earth, raunchy, always hilarious, and honest to the bone.
Her “Any questions?” set is something different from any other comedy shows, a true testament to someone who is, first of all, able to adapt quickly to audience interaction, and, second of all, bold enough to talk about any of the topics the audience called out.
“Beyoncé!” one person shouted out, referring to the alleged beef between Haddish and the singer, who referenced Haddish in a song after she told a story about Beyoncé stepping in to stop a woman from flirting with Jay-Z. Where others may have hesitated to talk about drama with high profile stars, Haddish relished the opportunity to crack jokes about them.
Haddish’s practice-what-you-preach advice, as she makes no attempt to hide her difficult childhood. She was in and out of foster homes for much of her childhood — and it should be noted that she did a meet and greet before the show, with the profits going to support children in the foster care system. At the beginning of her show, she talked about moving from foster home to foster home with her belongings carried in a trash bag. Haddish went on to explain how that experience led her to feel comfortable being herself in different environments.
Haddish’s positivity — her ability to see the best in things and in herself — is apparent. The audience left laughing, uplifted, and left with a renewed sense of purpose.Tweet
