7. Tiffany Haddish had a difficult childhood
Tiffany has spoken at length about her difficult upbringing. When she was a child, her mother was in a car accident that left her with severe brain damage and possibly triggered a mental illness. Soon after, Tiffany and her siblings were removed from the home and placed into group homes and foster care. Tiffany got her official start in comedy when, at the age of 17, a social worker suggested she either enter therapy or join the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp.
