Book Jacket Synopsis
Placed in the foster care system as a teen, and struggling to read at a basic level in ninth grade, Haddish found that humor and jokes helped her endure. When offered a choice between the Laugh Factory comedy camp or counseling to help recover from issues within the foster system, she chose the former and found her calling. In her first book, Haddish recounts her early life straight through to her powerhouse success both on the comedy circuit and in Hollywood with the 2017 film Girls Trip.

Review & Thoughts
Initial Thoughts: One of my favorite ways to enjoy a non-fiction memoir is through an audiobook narrated by the author themselves.
Themes, Elements & Review Notes: Tiffany Haddish is absolutely hilarious in this memoir. It’s sad that she had so much crazy sh*t happen in her life but she certainly made it entertaining to hear about it. There are tons of potential trigger warnings for this one because there truly was some crazy things that happened in her life.
The Last Black Unicorn was thoroughly entertaining and totally worth the listen. Not sure if I would have enjoyed it nearly as much if it hadn’t been narrated by the author.
