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
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 ...more
I spent the whole time I listened to this audiobook thinking about how to explain why I didn't like it. Haddish is smart, hilarious, and has undeniable presence. I bought this because I saw her on with Trevor Noah and laughed until I cried. Haddish has a lot to say and quite a life story to tell, but it didn't work in a book format for me.
I've seen her tell most of the main anecdotes in the second half of the book, but her delivery on stage was markedly different, more engaging, and the bits ti ...more
Tiffany Haddish is a one of a kind, strong, beautiful, hilarious woman. What she has gone through in her life has truly made her into what she is today, but it’s still heartbreaking that she had to go through it. The first half of her book was about her childhood, her family, her introduction to comedy, and her relationships. I found myself laughing aloud so hard that I had tears running down my face. I couldn’t believe what was coming out of her mouth. It wasn’t just about the story either – it ...more
Tiffany Haddish is a funny person and a funny comedian, but this book was vastly disappointing.
I listened to the audiobook, and I really expected a killer narration. Every single other audiobook autobiography of an actor/comedian that I've ever listened to was flawlessly narrated. I mean, it's their own words and they're actors, right? Well, not here. Tiffany's narration was so odd. Really choppy, really strangely read, like she had trouble with her own words. It honestly sounded like bad acting ...more
I LOVE Tiffany Haddish. So, I’m totally biased.
I laughed so hard at this book but it also had a great heart to it. Tiffany has been through a lot in her life but she chooses to see the good and positive in it. Tiffany is a great storyteller so she could make a mundane story interesting and funny. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to everyone.
I also found out that Tucker Max co-wrote the book and that’s is an interesting and perfect combo. A guilty pleasure of mine is Tucker Max and I f ...more
Indomitable spirit. Which historical figures come to mind when you hear that phrase? Mother Teresa? Gandhi, maybe? Those are two of the people who pop into my head right away.
And now, whenever I hear those words, I will also think of Tiffany Haddish.
I was late to the Haddish fandom. I somehow missed her years of stand up. It wasn’t until I saw the preview for Girls Trip and was like, “WHO IS THAT HILARIOUS WOMAN?” that I became aware of her.
Two days before the movie hit theaters, I saw her on Ji ...more
First off, I want to say that I love Tiffany Haddish. I think she's someone who is famous that is always authentically themselves and she always will be. She's a newer breakout star, so I didn't know much about her but this really shed some light into her past life and it was incredibly real and raw.
This book starts out with Tiffany's family and jobs as she was growing up. She didn't have the best life - her mom was (still kinda is) crazy and Tiffany never quite felt accepted in the fami ...more
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 ...more
