Tiffany Haddish is back with her highly anticipated new essay collection, I Curse You With Joy. In more than a dozen stories Tiffany is candid about her highs, lows, and everything in between. If you thought you knew Tiffany Haddish, oh you had no idea. I Curse You With Joy is the equivalent of being six months into a relationship, where you’re all in—the wig is off now, no makeup, no false lashes, no heels either! Stories run the gamut from Tiffany’s viral head-shaving video on Instagram where she found personal blessings right down to her scalp, her journey as a female stand-up comedian and auditioning for SNL to being the first Black women comedian to host it, and a bittersweet story of reconnecting with her estranged father after 20 years.
