Read The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish Online

The Last Black Unicorn

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 an ex-boyfriend or learning how to handle her newfound fame despite still having a broke persons 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 ishumble, grateful, down-to-earth, and funny as hell. And now, shes ready to inspire others through the power of laughter....

The Last Black Unicorn Reviews

  • zainab_booklover

    For me, the things that she had to go through are unimaginable; both the positive things and the negative things. Perhaps if I read them in a fiction book or a watched them in a movie, I would've said that can only happen in movies.

    it's an eye opener

    Tiffany Haddish made me clutch my chest, crying from laughter, and only a few people can do that to me. She is hilarious.

    But that’s not all.

    She is strong. She was strong when she was a child, a teenager, and she is still strong today. I can’t even believe how much she went through. I didn’t know who she was until I watched Girls Trip and some of her promotional interviews, but once I did, I needed to know more about this authentic woman.

    This woman who didn’t grow up a Hollywood star. She is li

    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

    I was nervous that a Tiffany Haddish book wouldn't feel like Tiffany Haddish, but happily no one has tried to change her. This book is so clearly 100% Tiffany, which is wise. If you've seen her on screen you would know if there was any attempt to dress her up or change her voice.

    A lot of this book is funny, but a lot of it really isn't. A rough childhood, troubled relationships with men, and plenty of encounters with misogyny in comedy. What you get here is joy and pain, but always through Tiff

    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 read this book because I love Tiffany Haddish, and I think she's hilarious, but this book is so disappointing. When I saw Tiffany in Girls Trip last year, she had me laughing until I was crying, and I was eager to get my hands on a copy of this audiobook. I finally listened to it, and unfortunately I was just not impressed. Not only is most of this book unfunny, but some of this book is extremely offensive to handicapped people and overweight people.

    This memoir started off with stories from h

    I think Tiffany Haddish is hilarious and beautiful and wonderful; however, this book is terrible.

    This might not be a popular opinion, but I thought this book was disgusting. Not just because she shits in a shoe (she does) but because as another reviewer noted, Haddish showed "such an in-depth level of ugliness and ignorance" that I couldn't make myself finish this one.

    Her descriptions of her encounters with a larger woman, a Jewish man, and a disabled co-worker were extremely offensive. In the a

    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
