Haddish is the oldest of five children. She is of Ethiopian jewish decent, she is also of Eritrean and African American decent. She cared for her younger siblings while her mother worked overnight at the post office. In 1988 her mother was in a car accident and went through the windshield of her car, this caused or triggered her schizophrenia. When Haddish was 13 her family was split up and the children put into foster care before her grandmother was awarded custody. Still damaged, Haddish constantly was in trouble at school. Finally her social worker gave her an ultimatum: go to psychiatric therapy or Laugh Factory Comedy Camp. The camp was the outlet for her pain and her passion for comedy was sparked.
Haddish has made guest appearances on such shows as, Chelsea Lately, That's So Raven, My Name Is Earl, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes?, The Underground, Nick Cannon's Short Circuitz, Just Jordan, In the Motherhood, Def Comedy Jam, Reality Bites Back and New Girl.
