Comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish won loads of people over with her brash brand of comedy but as with all comics, sometimes stand-up sets don’t quite hit the mark with the audience as was the case with her New Year’s Eve show.
Deadline reports that the stand-up set was so bad, in fact, that audience members “started walking out during her show where a lot of her jokes weren’t landing”, adding that at some points Haddish lost her train of thought and forgot her jokes.
Pissed off fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment over Haddish’s failed set, with some sharing clips from moments where the comic was left scrambling after she couldn’t remember her lines despite allegedly reading from an iPad.

@TiffanyHaddish just bombed her show in Miami. We left in the middle of her set along with a lot of other people. Very disappointed, I hope that you are better prepared before your next show. #SheNotReady ????— Surelle (@Indomitable1908) January 1, 2019

I went to go see if @TiffanyHaddish was actually funny. I ended up doing this. Conclusion: She is not funny. Horrible show. In her defense, she said she was having a rough night. She didn’t have to be up there. She ended up inviting me up on stage to tell jokes. ????????♂️???? pic.twitter.com/Ze1BPzeY9S— Andrew Chestnutt (@AndrewChestnut1) January 1, 2019
Shortly after the abysmal set, Haddish took to Twitter to apologise to fans, admitting that she messed up and vowing to be more prepared next time.
“Yes this happened. I wish it was better Miami. I prayed on it and I have a strong feeling this will never [happen] again,” she tweeted, accompanied by a link to an article with the headline, ‘Tiffany Haddish Bombs, Drinks With Fans Instead.’
