'Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready' Scores Second Season at Netflix
Tiffany Haddish has assembled more of her favorite comedians — and now, with a second season order for Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready, she will be able to shine the Netflix spotlight on all of them.
The new batch of episodes, set to premiere in 2021, will introduce six more comics of Haddish’s choosing. The new group includes Dean Edwards (Saturday Night Live), Kimberly Clark (Last Comic Standing), Tony Woods (Comedy Central Presents), Barbara Carlyle (Def Comedy Jam 25), Godfrey (Our Cartoon President) and Erin Jackson (Late Night with Seth Meyers).
As was the case season one, it’s a collection of women, people of color and LGBTQ performers who are often overlooked by the industry. With this platform, each will get a chance to perform a 15 to 20 minute set for Netflix's global viewership.
Since Haddish's own breakout role in 2017’s Girls Trip, she's continued to line up projects outside of stand-up. There have been a steady flow of movies — most recently Like a Boss and The Kitchen — along with a growing collection of TV projects, from TBS’ The Last OG to ABC's Kids Say The Darndest Things to Adult Swim's Tuca & Bertie.
Haddish, whose own Netflix special Black Mitzvah earned an Emmy nomination this summer, also serves as an executive producer on They Ready via her She Ready Productions alongside Wanda Sykes and Page Hurwitz of Push It Productions.
