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
So good it's not even funny.
Well, actually, it is really, really funny.
Listen to the audiobook if you can. I didn't know Tiffany Haddish's work before, but I try to listen to a variety of genres and this book had a great rating. I'm not surprised. This woman's story is inspiring and heartbreaking. She is hilarious and so, so real.
I haven't seen Girls Trip, The Carmichael Show, Keanu, or If Loving You is Wrong. Big surprise - I'm not a raucous-rude-comedy-appreciating viewer. Not that there's anything wrong with those who are, of course.
I became a Haddish Fan Girl the first time I viewed the 5 -7 minute video clip of Haddish on the Jimmy Kimmel show doing her bit on Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and the swamp tour. It was the funniest, most brilliant bit I've seen in a long, long time. On that basis, I checked LBU out of m ...more
..This book was funny as shit!!.. IMO..get the audiobook..listening to her tell this story is priceless!!!
I was nervous that a Tiffany Haddish book wouldn't feel like Tiffany Haddish, but happily no one has tried to change her. This book is so clearly 100% Tiffany, which is wise. If you've seen her on screen you would know if there was any attempt to dress her up or change her voice.
A lot of this book is funny, but a lot of it really isn't. A rough childhood, troubled relationships with men, and plenty of encounters with misogyny in comedy. What you get here is joy and pain, but always through Tiff ...more
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 read this for the Yule Bingo Challenge, for the category of Tonks: strong heroine. For more info on this challenge, click here. 🌟
I knew I wanted to read this book the moment I watched her interview with Trevor Noah. She seemed like such a fun, wonderful, crazy person. I watched Girls Trip recently, you know, for "research," and in that movie, I feel like Tiffany Haddish is channeling a lot of her own self for that character.

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
Please Note: I DNF'd this book at about the 40% mark. I listened to the audiobook version. This book was terrible. First, it wasn't written well at all. The story was extremely choppy and rushed. There were quite a few recountings of very ugly things that occurred in Haddish's life, but were told in an overly light-hearted manner that came across unseemly and inappropriate.
The book detailed some of the obstacles that Haddish had to overcome prior to her current success. However, it also showed ...more
