BEVERLY HILLS — Tiffany Haddish is an African American Jew and she celebrated her 40th birthday on Tuesday by throwing a “Black Mitzvah” at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills to ring in her newfound heritage. Billy Crystal, Jimmy Kimmel, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, Kevin Nealon, Sinbad and Charlamagne tha God were among the many celebs in attendance. In case you didn’t know, Tiffany discovered she was half Jewish when she turned 27-years-old. That’s when she met her father who’s an Eritrean Jew.

“For a long time, I didn’t even know black Jews existed,” Tiffany told Alma, a website for Jews.

“I didn’t know anything about Judaism for a long time.”

Realizing she had a bunch of homework to do, the “Girls Trip” actress spent the past few years studying Hebrew while learning Jewish culture and her proficiency is reflected in a new stand-up comedy special. Tiffany’s “Black Mitzvah” premiered Tuesday on Netflix, the same day as the shindig.

So far, it’s drawn mixed reviews.

  5. Black Jewish you should go to Israel they gonna love you….NOT.

  6. She isn’t funny. She just loud. Apparently to black people and white girls they the same thing tho…

  7. You are truly a Jewish Queen Tiffany!!!

  8. I’m sorry but this was awful! She’s become the black Amy Schumer; when that fame has gone to your head a little too quick and the funny has left. I was waiting for the jokes and she was out of breath and self conscious most of the show.

  9. Just do porn Tiffany

  10. Kojo Montgomery

    Her standup is mostly stories about her life, mistakes, success and being maltreated but using it to her advantage … but she does in a very goofy funny and somehow really sexy way. There is no punch line but then you are not even looking for one. It’s sets of different hilarious ratchet hood stories that your elitist self still wanna so badly hear it …. regardless of your race. I’ll give it a 7.5 out of 10. Worth your time to watch every single bit of it. Will be re-watching.

    This year so far my best English standups on Netflix
    1. Dave Chappelle
    – Sticks & Stones 5 STARS
    2. Bill Burr
    – Paper Tiger – 5 STARS
    (This stand up has been Very very underrated. Up there with Dave’s 100%. The timing by Netflix hurt its ratings. They should’ve released it 3 months later not the 2 months. Dave’s was still all the rave)
    3. Sebastian Maniscalco
    – Stay Hungry – 4.3 STARS
    4. Tiffany Haddish
    – BLACK MITZVAH – 4.1 STARS
    5. Anthony Jeselnik
    – Fire in the Maternity Ward – 4.1 STARS
    6. Mike Bibiglia
    – The New One – 4 Stars

    Well done Tiffany! 👏🏽👍🏽 Just an all out good time without making fun of other races/sexes etc. Whenever I watch Tiffany it’s like being at a party.

  12. Don’t listen to the haters, they don’t gotta watch you if they don’t care so they should really shut up :). Common sense you dont like a song or a movie or a show, THEN DON’T WASTE YO AIR LISTENING OR WATCHING IT.

  13. Why is it mfs always gotta come in the comments downing her nobody made you watch this!! Leave this girl alone and let her keep doing her seems like she’s doing good to me despite your hate

  14. Vocally Gifted

  15. She is so overrated!!!

  19. Kitana Exotica

    She is not funny I said it 🤷‍♀️

  20. Well done Netflix keep supporting the black comics. Now we need a Lavell Crawford and Godfrey special.

  21. I’m really happy for her. 👏🏾

  22. ZA_Survivalist

    Could care less if she is black or jewish.. however she is annoying as hell. Her voice is every bit as obnoxious as CardiB.. but also.. the incredibly cheap racial pandering and focus is just lazy. Its no different than when SJW’s pander and hyper focus on LGBTQRZLMNOP issues and make that their whole standup. Its tired and played out, It is quite literally the furthest thing from creative or funny.

  23. womp womp… not funny

  24. LOL my faaaav gal

  25. I love Tiffany 🤣💞

  26. Love me some Tiffany 🤣😍

  27. I love Tiff but Black Mitzvah was terrible!

  28. She’s 40 ???She looks like she’s in her early 30s🤔🤔🤔

  29. RobZavalaPhotos

    She discovered that she’s Jewish and that’s why she’s rich now lol

  30. Just saw the special – Tiff did a great job! Haters all in these comments!

  31. Ruthless Lover

    Netflix is shovin this shit in MoNique’s face

  32. Honestly I rather see a Monique special and she’s way funnier.

  33. I just watch this special a few days ago and I really enjoyed it. Tiffany is a really good storyteller and very captivating. There is something really sweet and pure about her energy. Her honesty about her life story is refreshing. You cannot help but to like and support her.

  34. Voice of Reasoning

    I really tried to give this stand up a chance!👎🏾

  35. Michelle Navarrete

    Mannnnnnn this is trash! I only laughed once and it was when she was shaking her ass. Monique would’ve had the whole crowd hollering!!!! No disrespect to Tiffany she’s a sweet girl and I’m proud of her success but this wasn’t it

  36. Is This comedy in america ?
    just promoting things She Wanna sell you ITS like if amazon had a act

  37. She is not funny, just saying….

  38. Raephaele Masirnille

    I really enjoyed Tiffany”s stand up. And she looked fabulous. I have never seen any comedian where I laughed at every joke. I am so happy for her success. I don’t know why people have to tear her down. I wish as black people we could support each other more. And why compare her to Monique or Amy? Why can’t they all be good? You know we can have more than one good female comedian at a time.

  39. This was horrible! There was no order, nothing funny about it. I get it, she’s telling her life experiences, but that’s it, anyone can do it, she just got lucky, and luck is all you need. She didn’t rehearse, she was not on point, and she still has a long way to go in stand-up. It was a mess.

  40. I really hope this bitch doesn’t think cultural appropriation is bad like the other people who cry when black culture is “copied” I’m pretty sure she’s not Jewish

  41. her comedy is straight doo doo

  42. This bitch wanna be everything but black… You a nigga… STFU
