HOLLYWOOD — Prior to her breakout role in the 2017 comedy “Girls Trip,” Tiffany Haddish busted her ass in a daunting attempt to make it big in show business. Her perseverance eventually paid off. Tiffany is currently a costar on Tracy Morgan’s TBS comedy “The Last O.G.” She can been seen effectuating organized crime with Melissa McCarthy in the villainous mob drama “The Kitchen,” and later this fall, she’ll emcee CBS’ restoration of “Kids Say the Darndest Things.” Now that she’s finally on top, the 39-year-old comedienne is giving a spotlight to her friends in the Netflix stand-up series “Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready.”

The comedy special premiered on Tuesday and, in the words of Tiffany, promises to “make you pee just a little bit.” In addition to hosting the show, Tiffany serves as executive producer alongside fellow comic Wanda Sykes. After garnering opprobrium for a paucity of diversity in their comedy specials, Netflix officials have augmented the platform to encompass mo’ homosexuals and women of color.

“They Ready” features a series of 30 minute performances from a sextet of funny ladies who’ve worked with Tiffany through the years. They are: gay comic Chaunté Wayans (MTV’s “Wild ‘N Out”), Caucasian farceur April Macie (NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”), Tracey Ashley (TBS’ “The Last O.G.”), Puerto Rican joker Aida Rodriguez (Comedy Central’s “This Week at the Comedy Cellar”), transgender humorist Flame Monroe (“Def Comedy Jam”) and Compton native Marlo Williams (BET’s “ComicView”).

Before achieving comedic stardom, Tiffany made a promise to the aforementioned six. “Don’t worry, when I make it, I’m gonna come back and get you and we’re going to the top,” an emotional Tiffany recounted. “I don’t know what, but I’m going to put you on something.”

Leslie Jones, a writer on “Saturday Night Live,” has also received a Netflix comedy special.

    Just reading over the comments- Y’all are some Fair weather fans … y’all love her when y’all want to and hate her when y’all want to as well.

    Sit down ……

    Great Job Tiffany and she’s still growing. We need more women in comedy and hip hop. Tired of men and their silly jokes.

  18. I’m glad Tiffany accepted that she isn’t funny, so decided to empower women that actually are.

  19. Tiffany is so perfect😻

  20. I give Tiffany props for doing this. Monique somewhere like oh..”maybe it was just me” now.

  21. The first 3 was the best but Flame Monroe was a beast on stage. Hands down to Tiffany for supporting them and allowing them to shine 👏👏👏💕💕💕

  22. terminalcommand

    It’s more like Tiffany Haddish is a terrible stand-up comedian and bombed so many times…So Netflix knows she is not funny and instead they got an ensemble of actually funny female comedians for Tiffany Haddish to hide behind….LoL….

    “They ready” cos she not 😂…

  24. DemenCha's Dungeon

  25. So full of life, so much fun. I really love Flame Monroe, she’s so empowering to everyone, everywhere, but the whole bunch is fantastic. I think it’s cause they are all such fabulous storytellers. Could watch and listen all day long. Thanks, Tiffany. You did good.
