The comedian/actress reflects on the traumatic experiences and insecurities that shaped her childhood, as well as her unwavering determination to bring joy to others despite adversity.

AceShowbiz - Tiffany Haddish, the 44-year-old actress and comedian, recounted a challenging period in her childhood, during which she witnessed violence and loss, leading her to believe she would not live past age 21. "I thought I would die before I was 21, because people were getting shot around me," she shared.

Haddish's childhood was marked by numerous funerals for close friends, creating an overwhelming sense of despair and uncertainty. Yet, amidst the devastation, a flicker of hope remained. She said, "Even as I got older and I felt like my world was being taken and pulled apart, I still wanted to bring joy."

As a child, Haddish gravitated towards entertainment, finding solace in imitating performances from the television show Star Search. She added, "I wanted to be on 'Star Search' so bad. I remember having my little church shoes, those little Mary Janes with the hard bottoms. I'd go in the kitchen, I'd be tap dancing."

Haddish invited neighborhood children to her home, where she would sing and dance for them, showcasing her talent. "I would make up these songs and sing and dance for them," he recalled. While she always dreamed of becoming an entertainer, she never imagined achieving the fame and success she has today.

Despite the childhood trauma she endured, Haddish remained resilient, determined to spread joy through her work. She acknowledged that she had difficulties and setbacks in her personal life, including arrests and the end of relationships. However, she found strength in sharing her struggles in her memoir, "I Curse You with Joy", hoping to inspire others.
