The 2018 Emmys kicked off with an overly long and overly topical monologue from hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che that tried hard to be funny … but ended up being cringeworthy. The ‘SNL’ vets came out standing shoulder-to-shoulder Monday…
Jimmy Kimmel came out with his gloves on to open the 90th Academy Awards … beating on Harvey Weinstein and Vice President Mike Pence. Kimmel — who’s hosting the Oscars again this year — dove straight into the #TimesUp and #MeToo…
Stormy Daniels is going to war — a vagina war — with Wendy Williams, and she’s willing to put it ALL on the line … TMZ has learned. Stormy caught wind of Wendy’s show Wednesday when the host called her washed up, messy — and the coup de grace…
Tiffany Haddish made history this weekend.
As hard as it may be to believe, the actress became the first stand-up comedian to host Saturday Night Live.
Yes, the show has been on for 43 years and this has never happened before.
But Haddish made sure it will definitely happen again, delivering a hilarious and blistering monologue that proved how adept she is with a microphone in her hands and a studio audience sitting just a few feet away.
She also proved that she's downright hilarious.
Referencing her hit comedy Girls Trip, Haddish said the following early on:
“I googled myself – it said I’m worth $ 2 million! What do I need to do to get this money? Fake my own death? Tupac this sh*t and move to Tyler Perry Island?”
She then provided viewers with some background information, filling them on some shocking blanks from her past.
“I grew up in foster care,” she said. “So I want to thank anyone who paid taxes between 1990 and 1999.”
"Living in group homes with mostly black and Hispanic children wasn’t an easy thing come 11:30 on Saturday nights…
"Trying to convince them that Dana Carvey was just as funny as Damon Wayans was a problem. I got stabbed twice, in a bunk bud.”
Haddish also tackled a few current events.
First, there was a quip about Donald Trump's hair.
But she really hit her stride when citing the ongoing sexual harassment accusations flying around Hollywood these days.
“If you got your thing-thing out and she got all her clothes on YOU’RE WRONG," she said very simply.
You'd think this would be an obvious point, but try telling that to Louis C.K. and others.
Toward the end of her terrific monologue, Haddish broke out into a praise and worship dance.
