SR International: Tiffany Haddish Talks New Children’s Book, Her Big Goal And More


When you ask Tiffany Haddish how she is, she replies, deadpan, “I’m successful. How are you?” According to Celebrity Net Worth, the actor and comedian is reportedly worth $6 Million. For the most part, Haddish, 42, doesn’t need a lot of sleep to do it. Recently, she sometimes journals into the wee hours, and has only been getting three or four hours per night. Sometimes, it catches up to her: “I went to a conference and I was dozing off in the dang conference,” she says. Tiffany Haddish Net Worth

This month, Haddish also released her children’s book, “Layla the Last Black Unicorn,” about a unicorn who wants to fit in at school, eventually realizing she shouldn’t try to hide her own uniqueness. (Haddish’s 2017 memoir was titled The Last Black Unicorn.)


Haddish starred in this year’s Apple TV+ series “The Afterparty,” which was recently renewed for a second season, as well as the Nicolas Cage comedy “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.” Here, she speaks to WSJ. about journaling in her portable sauna and why she’d make an excellent detective.

Here are some things Tiffany Haddish revealed to WSJ. Magazine…

On what time she gets up on Mondays and the first thing she does:

It depends on what time I went to bed on Sunday, but normally I wake up at about 6 or 7 o’clock in the morning, and I stretch—when I say stretch, I mean I reach my arms up—and I pick up my telephone. And I put it on Do Not Disturb, and then I turn on my little meditation music. I sit there for probably about five, 10 minutes. Go use the restroom, brush my teeth, wash my body off and find some food.

On the time of the day or week when she’s most creative:

Everyday, darling. And anytime I’m awake, I’m creating something.

Sorry I got dramatic on you there, but that’s true.

On her exercise routine:

Well, I like to jog. I’ll do that probably twice a week. And then dancing, a lot of dance, that’s usually at night time. And then I’ll do some stretching, like I said. That’s really important. I probably work out three times a week. And I love, love, love to sit in my little portable sauna when I’m doing my little notes and stuff, when I journal.

On journaling:

I journal before I go to bed, which is sometimes the problem with me sleeping for so few hours, because I’ll be writing so much. Sometimes it’s what happened during the day, sometimes it’s an idea I have, sometimes it’s me plotting and planning, calendaring. Strategizing.

On her calendar:

It’s funny, I have a calendar that most of the people on my team can see, and then I have my calendar that only I can see. You know what? That’s what makes me feel productive, when I see everything done on the calendar.

On what’s on her secret calendar:

You said the key word. It’s a secret, darling, that’s why it’s a secret calendar.

On why she wrote her new children’s book Layla the Last Black Unicorn:

“The sooner you learn how to accept who you are for what you are and be proud of your differences, the sooner you’ll be able to function in society,” says Haddish. “I think the kids need to learn about that as soon as possible.”

When I was a kid, people used to call me “dark unicorn,” and I love unicorns, so I was like, oh why not make her a Black unicorn? And Layla means “dark and beautiful night,” so I like that name. And I love her curly hair. Tiffany Haddish Net Worth

On playing a detective on The Afterparty – which was recently renewed for a second season—and whether she would be a good detective in real life:

I’d be an excellent detective, darling. I’m a woman.

On whether, as a comedian, there are things one shouldn’t joke about:

I think you can joke about anything, it just depends on where you’re coming from and the circumstances. And know your audience. It’s really important to know your audience and know where you are.

On the dream character she’d love to play:


On what makes her feel the most productive:

When I check my bank account.

On the one piece of advice she’s gotten that’s guided her:

Do something every single day towards your goal, do at least one thing a day towards your big goal. And you’ll accomplish it. And that has been my guiding light.

On the one big goal she’s working towards:

Okay, I’ll tell you. My big goal is to open an amusement park.

You’re like, “Yeah, sure, whatever.” When I do it, you’re going to be the first one to get a ticket to go, because you don’t believe me. 

If Dolly Parton can do it, Tiffany Haddish can do it. Every amusement park is attached to a major motion studio. Except for Dollywood, because she has her own studios. When you get enough intellectual property, you can make the rides based off that, i.e. 50 movies.
