Tiffany Haddish's New Stand-Up Special Giving Rising Comedians a Platform To Shine Premieres on Netflix Very Soon

"Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready" will highlight six comedians specially curated by the "Girls Trip" star.

Tiffany Haddish continues to pay it forward with an upcoming comedy special that's premiering on Netflix very soon.

Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready is a six-episode, half-hour comedy special highlighting six comedians specially curated by the Eritrean-American comedy star, Deadline reports.


We'll be seeing comedy chops from Chaunté Wayans (50 Shades of Black), April Macie (Snoop Dogg's Bad Girls of Comedy), Tracey Ashley (The Last O.G.), Aida Rodriguez (Last Comic Standing), Flame Monroe (Def Comedy Jam) and Marlo Williams (BET's ComicView).

This stand-up special will put comedians such as these, who usually don't get their due shine, the light of day. Not only does Haddish have history with each comedian, she hopes to give this diverse group of talented individuals a platform as a response to the entertainment industry's consistent exclusion of women, people of color and LGBTQ talent.

Produced by She Ready Productions and Push It Productions; as well as executive produced by Wanda Sykes and Page Hurwitz, Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready will be premiering on the streaming platform on August 13.
