The Last Black Unicorn Read Online Free - 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.

This is definitely worth reading. Haddish is incredibly funny, smart and observant. She has lived a hard life which makes her success all the more admirable and deserved. There are places where I wanted more depth. The book is short and reads fast, sometimes too fast. But the funny parts will bri...

Indomitable spirit. Which historical figures come to mind when you hear that phrase? Mother Teresa? Gandhi, maybe? Those are two of the people who pop into my head right away.
And now, whenever I hear those words, I will also think of Tiffany Haddish.
I was late to the Haddish fandom. I somehow mis...

I definitely recommend listening to The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish. Firstly she's hysterical and can definitely tell a joke and/or a story. The memoir traces her life from her youth to current her success. Each story reveals something about her character and her growth into the woman s...

So good it's not even funny.
Well, actually, it is really, really funny.
Listen to the audiobook if you can. I didn't know Tiffany Haddish's work before, but I try to listen to a variety of genres and this book had a great rating. I'm not surprised. This woman's story is inspiring and heartbreaking...

A lot of people had never heard of Tiffany Haddish until her star making role in last years Girls Trip, but Tiffany has been on her grind for decades. Tiffany is an overnight sensation tha...

I was nervous that a Tiffany Haddish book wouldn't feel like Tiffany Haddish, but happily no one has tried to change her. This book is so clearly 100% Tiffany, which is wise. If you've seen her on screen you would know if there was any attempt to dress her up or change her voice.
A lot of this bo...

Please Note: I DNF'd this book at about the 40% mark. I listened to the audiobook version. This book was terrible. First, it wasn't written well at all. The story was extremely choppy and rushed. There were quite a few recountings of very ugly things that occurred in Haddish's life, but were told...

"Growing roses out of poop"
Other than reading, I really love comedy. Really great stand up can be an art form. I love to wallow in it from time to time. My top faves include Pryor and Murphy (old leather wearing Eddie Murphy) (though his brother Charlie Murphy is a fucking riot (may he RIP) and s...
