Early life 
Haddish is primarily of African-American descent but also is of Ethiopian-Jewish, Eritrean, and Afro-Dominican descent. Her social worker spotted her talent in stand-up comedy, while she was playing. As a child, Tiffany grew up wanting to be a horse farmer or a worker in a beef jerky factory but instead she enrolled herself into the renowned Laugh Factory Comedy Camp for Children.
Haddish is the oldest of five kids. 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/triggered her schizophrenia. At 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.
Tiffany’s comedy has taken her all over the world. After returning from Japan, Tiffany performed for U.S. Troops on the USO tour. She has also performed at The Comedy Store and The Improv. She also performs at a comedy show developed for inner-city high school students that promotes non-violence called Chuckles Not Knuckles.
She 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 and Reality Bites Back. She has also starred in movies such as Meet the Spartans and Janky Promoters.
