Besides delivering some of her own stand-up, Haddish is inviting six amazing comedians to perform on the show. Each of these comedians shares a personal history with Haddish, which we’ll learn about during their stand-up routines. A few, or all, might seem familiar, or you might wonder what these comedians are famous for. So we’ve turned the spotlight on the cast of Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready.
