Summary:

Grammy Award Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album!

From stand-up comedian, actress, and breakout star of Girls Trip, Tiffany Haddish, comes The Last Black Unicorn, a sidesplitting, hysterical, edgy, and unflinching collection of (extremely) personal essays, as fearless as the author herself.

Growing up in one of the poorest neighborhoods of South Central Los Angeles, Tiffany learned to survive by making people laugh. If she could do that, then her classmates would let her copy their homework, the other foster kids she lived with wouldn’t beat her up, and she might even get a boyfriend. Or at least she could make enough money—as the paid school mascot and in-demand Bar Mitzvah hype woman—to get her hair and nails done, so then she might get a boyfriend.

None of that worked (and she’s still single), but it allowed Tiffany to imagine a place for herself where she could do something she loved for a living: comedy.

Tiffany can’t avoid being funny—it’s just who she is, whether she’s plotting shocking, jaw-dropping revenge on an ex-boyfriend or learning how to handle her newfound fame despite still having a broke person’s mind-set. Finally poised to become a household name, she recounts with heart and humor how she came from nothing and nowhere to achieve her dreams by owning, sharing, and using her pain to heal others.

By turns hilarious, filthy, and brutally honest, The Last Black Unicorn shows the world who Tiffany Haddish really is—humble, grateful, down-to-earth, and funny as hell. And now, she’s ready to inspire others through the power of laughter.

    Very real and to the point. I really think that Will and Jada Smith are real snobs and they truly forgot where they came from... Tiffany always stay true and humble, don't let anyone try to convince you of things that doesn't suite you... Great book...and that song at the end is so damn funny!!

    Excellent book! I laughed. I cried. I cried because I laughed to hard. Tiffany reading her book showed her personality through her words. I liked her before, but now I absolutely adore her.

  • Meagan

    Amazing stories of her life and path to be where she is. I couldn’t shut it off.

  • Penny W.

    The funniest audiobook ever! Warning: Tiffany’s stories can be vulgar and explicit, but so hilarious. I listened to this audiobook wanting to learn more about her time in foster care; however, the story of her youth jumps around and is hard to figure out her story chronologically. In her story telling, she really glosses over the extremely hurtful situations and covers her incredible hurt with humorous stories. She tells individual stories as a standup routine with her pronunciations and bad grammar plus vulgar language. The stories are mostly stand alone and aren’t specifically chronological. Even with all these issues, I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It’s not a literary masterpiece but I wouldn’t expect that anyway.

  • Talethia S.

    very funny and real

    Amazing story with skillful story telling techniques. Indeed Tiffany is a talented self made commedian . Funny , sad , entertaining, educational and inspiring story all at the same time. Thank you so much for writing and sharing this wonderful story of yours Tiffany.

  • Sharon Carr

    This book was great ,I laughed,I cried I feel.like I know Ms.Had dish better even though I liked her from the start,Great Job.

  • Valerie F.

    This book was awesome. I enjoyed the story about her life as told by herself. The fact that she narrated the audiobook added a personal touch for me and definitely gave it more perspective that made it even easily to relate to and follow her story line.

  • Tanesha B.

    The book was funny but Tiffany as the narrator made it even funnier.

  • Maria R.

    I like it.

  • Sara C.

    EXCELLENT read/listen. Tiffany really opens up about topics that are hard to discuss but that so many people can relate to. Touching, emotional, and SO funny! So much better with Tiffany reading it herself! Totally recommend it to others.

  • Livia N.

    Her life up until the publishing of this autobiography was hard. My heart ache for young Tiffany who had no father and a mother whose personality and ability to care for herself and her many children changed dramatically for the worse. Adult Tiffany had a few interesting dating issues. I had a hard time with the vulgar language and manner Tiffany chose to tell these dating stories. She came off as extremely mean when imitating disabled Roscoe even though I doubt highly that was her intention. Her professional career path to becoming a comedic actress and standup comedian was easier to hear and celebrate as she t shared it. Her celebrity friendships with Jada Pinkett Smith and Kevin Hart seemed to have influenced her the most. I hope by now she did achieve her goal of buying a duplex and housing her mentally ill mother in one of the units and getting her mother back on the medication regime that kept her the most stable and the least verbally and physically abusive to Tiffany. Overall, I am still on the fence about whether or not reading her autobiography was a good idea. Because of how crude and mean she came off sounding I would never pay to see her standup comedy routine. Her schtick just isn't my cup of tea. However, I love her dialed back energy on screen as a comedic actress and will continue to support her film career. Final thoughts: I would only recommend this autobiography to readers who can truly appreciate extremely crass language and a story that has absolutely no polite filters whatsoever.

    then understanding of the title was at the end and it was ok. wish that was thrown more into the book

  • Van L.

    Such a wonderful book!! Tiffany is such an articulate lady and she fills me up with laughter. It’s a sad story but I’m so glad she found success after all she has been through. After reading this book I wish I could’ve hugged Tiffany personally!

    , this is the best book i have read in 2020. I believe i can be anything i want to be. Thank you Tiffany

  • India S.

    Her honesty and raw vulnerability in this book is amazing and so inspiring! I definitely was expecting a funny memoir but was not mad about the heartbreaking realness she delivered. I loved hearing it in her own voice and this book really surprised me regarding how much sh*t Tiffany Haddish has actually been through in her life, and to come out the other side still fighting and still smiling! Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a REAL comedian perspective.

  • Renee H.

    I enjoy Tiffany. She is very entertaining but she is also repetitious. I felt like I was hearing the same stories told and retold. At times I was bored but continued to listen looking forward to whatever else she might say that might be different. It was disappointing.

  • Akiri C.

    Great story!

  • Anonymous

    I enjoyed hearing Tiffany narrators and tell her story. This is by far one of the best books. I was sad when it ended. Great job!

  • Anonymous

    Had I read it myself, the book wouldn't have been as interesting. Tiffany's narration is at 7 stars. Great listen. I would recommend.

  • Daeonna D.

    I think that Tiffany is an incredible and hilarious person and I bet the kids that was calling her all those names regret it because look at her now she's one of the most funniest women in the world. Never let words tell you who you are going to be in life just keep moving forward Tiffany.

  • Kim F.

    It’s great! I loved the book! Tiffany Haddish used a lot of profanity, and a lot of humor to tell her very real and honest stories. I learned so much about the author. Her stories opened up my mind to how difficult some lives can be. We are all born into this world as vulnerable and loving humans. We are shaped by our upbringing. I felt so sad for her most of the time, but she is resilient and amazing. I would recommend the book!

  • Eric O.

    Freaking hilarious, real and funny at the same time

  • Traci M.

    Tiffany’s honesty is hair on the back of my neck raising but she is able to put a smile on my face at the same time! Being read in her own voice really makes it special!!

  • Heather K.

    I was a little skeptical at first, but thankfully I was so wrong! Tiffany is beyond hilarious and real and you can really feel her emotions through her narration. It is raw, but necessary to understand where she was and where she is now. One of my favorite books to add to my list.

  • Tammy S.

    Although I had heard a good bit of this book through Tiffany's standup, I thoroughly enjoyed hearing it all again through her narration. I laughed, I cried for her, then I laughed again. And the Last Black Unicorn song sealed the deal! Go Tiffany, all the best!

  • Evelyn L.

    “She’s ready!”, strong, funny and shows the reader through her story how to push aside the bad and take the good in life! It touched my heart as somethings I seemed to identify with and found myself nodding my head saying “so true”.

  • Trina B.

    One of the best books I've listened to I laughed so hard at parts, related to some parts and was sad for her at others. Worth a listen for sure

  • MONIQUE J.

    Hysterically funny, entertaining and informative. I have so much more respect for her an sooo appreciate that she narrated her own story. Sorry I waited so long to get this audiobook, gr8 job MzREADY!!!

  • Jennay R.

    LOVE HER!!!

  • Tanielle B.

    This book was amazingly written and I must say it was an excellent addition to have Tiffany Haddish read her story. The way she read it, I could visualize as if I was going through the experiences with her. I view the book about her life as inspiring.

  • Madalyn W.

    I dont usually leave reviews but i felt that i needed to. I didn’t know what to expect when I purchased this book and at first I was confused about how I felt about it. I didn’t think that I was going finish it. But I couldn’t stop listening to it. I wanted to know more. I’m glad I listened to the book instead of reading it. It’s was animated,funny, and real. And at times it felt as if she was my homegirl telling me about her life and encouraging me at the same time. I will probably listen to this book again.

  • Toni B.

    Tiffany Haddish truly is a Unicorn. Her stories are replete with the magic of her kind and tenacious spirit. A master storyteller, Tiffany enthralls the audience with stories of traumatic scenes from her life. She recounts them in such a way that does not traumatize the reader. In essence, she teaches the reader the power of a positive attitude in helping her be reslient. Tiffany Haddish, you are on my bucket list of people to meet and hug. I truly hope Roscoe comes back to you!!

  • Melany D.

    I knew it would be funny, but it’s also very heartfelt. I couldn’t wait to put my headphones on and keep listening- not a family friendly read so I recommend headphones!

  • Ramya K

    A book that inspires you to do and achieve more. Her story is amazing and real and my admiration for the author has increased.

  • Noelani E

    I loved this book. Tiffany is so relatable, and when you read it, you feel like you guys are friends and she's just telling you her crazy, hilarious, and inspiring stories. I hope she'll write another one!

  • Sara E

    Loved hearing Tiffany read the book. I laughed so hard in some parts I cried. She makes you want to be her friend.

  • LaVonda L

    Good Read. She has went through some things with her mother. She is a very Strong Woman.

  • Eric L

    Great one! I don't think I could've laughed more by going to a comedy club. Well done!

  • KIMBERLY S

    laughed so hard - great read!

  • C W

    Didn’t laugh once and really hated how she made light of her getting an abortion after that I stopped listening.

  • Bridget K

    Brilliant thanks for using your gift! I laughed and I also connected to the messages. Can't wait for the next one.

  • Amanda f

    goood book

  • Juliana L

    I listened to the Audio version of this book and I completely recommend it. It's one thing to read her story, but having her read it to you is in my opinion the way better option. This woman went through so much in her life and I am so happy she kept true to herself and stayed strong. I do not want to give away any part of the book, but I will say if you love crazy and hilarious people then get this book ASAP. I didn't want this book to end! I wish I knew who Rumpelstiltskin was or any of the other comedians she mentioned who gave her a hard time as a woman in comedy.

  • Brenden J

    Such an amazing book. Listening to you narrate the book made it even better. Your story is one of inspiration. I feel like I know you now lol.

    I absolutely loved this book. It touched all my emotions, made me laugh and cry, but mostly increased my endorphin levels from the uncontrollable laughter that was brought forth from the gut reniching authentiic way you told your life story to make it so vivid, that I felt like I was watching a move . I couldn't wait to come home from work and listen to your book. Looking forward to the next EDITION . LOVE YOUR WORK TIFFANY. YOLANDA GRACE Loved it!! ALL MY EMOTIONS

  • Sarah F

    I absolutely loved this book! Tiffany is a real life magical unicorn. A real gem. The book has you hooked from start to finish <3

  • Rhonda H

    Good story but very adult content. Make sure children don’t hear!

  • Sally B

    Tiffany is hysterical on stage and in movies. I loved Girl Trip. She’s very candid in the book and has engaged in some serious self examination. She has survived and thrived, by her hard work, a truly awful childhood. That said, it’s just so crude - beyond what’s needed, and even I - not the least bit prudish - found it just icky at times, and wishing the pendulum would begin to swing back to a little less ‘no holds barred’ obscenity.

  • Nomafrika T

    The book was entertaining and really lives up to its marketing hype. Tiffany's timing on the promotion and events that introduced her to us i.e "Girls Trip" are so well documented and mentioned in the book, I feel like I know her! An area that could have been better was grammar and use of language, an audio choice smoothes this over but I doubt if I would have had patience to read the book.

  • Ciara M

    Loved it

  • Ronald N

    All I have to say is wow !! Forget about reading the book Her narrations were Lively and entertaining I listen to the whole thing and one day What a unique and wonderful individual Thanks
