A disapointed fan from Las Vegas, Nevada
Lots of moments of awkward silence. Too much attention given to the hecklers in the crowd, almost as if she needed them to help her with her jokes because she was unprepared. She felt she had to clear the air about what happened in Miami (New Years Eve) using drinking and partying as an excuse. What was her excuse this time? People were walking out before the end. Openers and MC were much better than her. She used her common sense and had eveeyone’s phones locked up for the show so there was no recordings of her lame performance to post on social media. Good luck at The Microsoft Theater in LA next month !
Laughing on Empty from Las Vegas, Nevada
Went out for a nice night. Wasn’t expecting much out of Tiffany Haddish in terms of standup. Showed started behind schedule. I was hoping for a decent set which we got out of most of the openers. When it came time for Tiffany, she told about 3-4 good jokes and did crowd work for the rest of the show. Which was annoying. I understand crowd work at small open mics for amateur comics but not at an expensive theater show. 45 mins of crowd work with 10 mins of pushing her merch?? Would have been better if she stuck to her set that she mentioned, and maybe promoted her merch in the last minute or 2 with her cause. My disappointment was immeasurable and my night was ruined.

WE DESERVE BETTER
I am not into the social media sites, so I was not aware of Ms. Haddish’s failed New Year’s Eve show in Miami. Ms. Haddish began her routine discussing what led to her debacle in Miami. Many past and present comedians use failed life experiences to produce incredibly funny monologues. So, I think it was great for Ms. Haddish to try turn the Miami incident into to a source of comedy. The difference is that other comedians have used negative experience to develop comedic stand up routines, Ms. Haddish appeared to simply stand on stage and discuss the details leading up to her failed performance but provided no real elements of comedy to bring about laughs or provide a punch line to her narrative. After she discussed the incident in Miami, which took about 20 minutes, I honestly don’t think that Ms. Haddish had any additional prepared material for her routine. Everything she said after the Miami narrative, seemed to come from the top of her head or she simply fed off of the audience. Ms. Haddish went on to say that she was very bothered or hurt by social media comments that she particularly received from Black men. She noted the many negative comments that seemed to revel in her failure came from Black men. Not sure if Black men have cornered this market on this type of negativity, but I do feel that in today’s world there are far too many television program, social media sites, and etc. that seem to promote and encourage people to laugh at or belittle others, when sympathy and empathy should be shown. People that find enjoy in others failures are just simple minded. However, I think Ms. Haddish should realize, that anyone that took the time to buy a ticket to attend her show, wanted to see and support her. I am a Black male, and this is the category I fell in. On top of that, if you know anything about this woman’s background and what she has overcome, you can’t help but want to support and see her be successful. What is most disappointing is that after the failed show in Miami, Tiffany should have been concerned about having great tour performances from that point on. That is called being a professional. After reading the comments about s Ms. Haddish’s shows in Richmond Virginia, Austin Texas, Albuquerque New Mexico, and Las Vegas Nevada, the show quality does not appear to have improved. I saw the show in Phoenix Arizona in mid February, and people began walking out of the auditorium, slightly passed the mid point of the show. Bottom line, if the audience is required to place all cellphones in a pouch, to avoid any recording of another Miami like debacle………….. Ms. Haddish is obviously not too secure about her product.

CRASH AND BURN....AGAIN
I bought meet and greet tickets to her show the moment they went on sale. My excitement was over the top, Tiffany with a valentines night out with my wife great idea. NOT. The show started late, the opening acts were okay but Tiffany fell apart. She told the New Year’s Eve story, did some lazy stripper dance then lost to a heckler. Tiffany went off on a him and lost the crowd. She burned the heckler appropriately but did not move on with the show. Tiffany just kept going at him in a fit of anger to the point where her staff flagged her down from the side and told her to get on with the show. Too late, the damage was done. She needs better professional coaching or her career will fizzle. Now I know why the entire crowd had to lock our cellphones in bags, they knew she was gonna fail.

ALL BARK NO BITE
San Jose - Weak performance. The question/answer portion had gotten weird. She’s such and egoist, like do you think you’re the only person who has had struggles? Really? Humble yourself lady. I was there to hear jokes, not listen to some low budget wannabe Tony Robbins motivational, philosophical BS. She should’ve stuck to the script (TELL JOKES). Tighten up your game! Good people spend good money to watch professional acts. THEN, having people’s phones taken when you got inside and placed in bags was strange as well. She is not on that type of level to be taking peoples phones, like her performance was some type of precious secret. MmmHmm. She’s not Kevin Hart status, not even close. Save your money, and just listen to her on YouTube or if she’s lucky, because she’s “famous” now, Netflix will give her a special, but don’t expect something specatular. Her opening acts were worth watching though !

I have loved Tiffany Haddish in her shows and movies. I admire how hard she has worked to overcome her difficult childhood. When tickets came out for the show in San Jose I purchased two VIP tickets to her show with a “Meet and Greet” after the show. I was extremely disappointed with her show. I hardly laughed and was extremely shocked with her attitude. She went after a man who heckled her and she got down right nasty. The man was completely wrong shouting out for her to tell jokes instead of continuing with the question and answer segment. She definitely was not prepared to give a standup show. The show started late, she didn’t do standup very long (which wasn’t funny), and the question/answer segment was bizarre. I would have left early; however, I had the “Meet and “Greet” after the show. She was wonderful and lovely during my personal time with her. I got a photo with her, had her autograph her book for me, she hugged me several times, and apologized for her Bipolar behavior (her words). I left that night feeling better about her. I think she is talented but needs to improve her comedy show and definitely needs to grow thicker skin when people say inappropriate things to her.

TIFFANY HADDISH: I’LL-PREPARED
It was obvious that Tiffany wasn’t prepared; I’m not even being critical. Don’t sell tickets- accept patron’s money, and not deliver a quality show where at a minimum- you’ve prepared some content. She was trying create content using the crowd- Q&A- please save that for meet & greet. Also, the shift from Q&A seemed staged as s man blurted an insult- then the content shifted to Tiffany attacking him. Sad. I’m happy about Tiffany’s success...but this stand up tour is not a success. Get writers: prepare content. You don’t have to be the greatest- but people can tell when you’re not prepared.
