Tiffany Haddish made history over the weekend as the first Black female stand-up comic to host SNL in its 43 seasons.

The Girls Trip star delivered one hell of an opening monologue, which included a praise dance, comments about her wardrobe and Hollywood’s latest climate of sexual harassment allegations.

In case you missed it, here are the top four moments from the star’s opening monologue and sketches.

Sexual Harassment: While addressing the string of sexual harassment and assault allegations in Hollywood, Haddish advised this to men: “If you got your thing-thing out and she got all her clothes on YOU’RE WRONG.”

Instagram Fashion: Haddish recalled comedian Kevin Hart praising her for traveling from Thailand, China, Japan, Florida, San Francisco and Los Angeles in one day. He assumed this because she was wearing the same outfit in all of the pictures. Oh … but he was wrong. “This is what I can’t stand about the Internet, it’s messing with my fashion game, I should be able to wear what I want, when I want, however many times I want as long as I Febreze it.”

Foster Care: When discussing going up in foster care, Tiffany “thanked anyone who paid taxes between 1990 and 1999.”

Cardi B. Skit: For a faux-audition reel, the comedian played Cardi B. auditioning for the Lion King. Hilarious!

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
