Tiffany Haddish Apologizes for Disappointing New Year's Eve Show
The comedian took to Twitter to confirm reports of a less-than-stellar Miami gig before the end of 2018.
Tiffany Haddish wishes she had a better New Year's Eve.
The comedian took to Twitter on New Year's Day to confirm reports that her final show of 2018, at Miami's James L. Knight Center, was a less-than-stellar gig in which she reportedly forgot some of her jokes as audience members walked out and she drank onstage.
Tweeting a link to a story about the incident from The Root, Haddish wrote, "Yes this happened. I wish it was better Miami. I prayed on it and I have a strong feeling this will never happened again."

The story claims Haddish forgot some of her jokes and noticed that the ones she could remember weren't connecting with the crowd. Audience members took to Twitter to complain about the set and note that people walked out.
According to TMZ, as people were leaving, Haddish said "This is weird for me. Now, this is going to be on TMZ or whatever."
She ultimately opened a bottle of Ciroc and started drinking with the audience, TMZ added.
Earlier in the day, Haddish posted a video to her Instagram account in which she admits she was up until 7 a.m. partying the night before.
"Ciroc is still in my system," she says at one point.
Disappointed fans in attendance at Haddish's Monday night show took to Twitter to describe their experiences.
I went to go see if @TiffanyHaddish was actually funny. I ended up doing this. Conclusion: She is not funny. Horrible show. In her defense, she said she was having a rough night. She didn’t have to be up there. She ended up inviting me up on stage to tell jokes. pic.twitter.com/Ze1BPzeY9S— Andrew Chestnutt (@AndrewChestnut1) January 1, 2019

@TiffanyHaddish just bombed her show in Miami. We left in the middle of her set along with a lot of other people. Very disappointed, I hope that you are better prepared before your next show. #SheNotReady— Surelle (@Indomitable1908) January 1, 2019
Kathy Griffin, meanwhile, defended her fellow comedian.
Fuck You. You're always there to attack women and people of color, aren't you? When's the last time you wrote a negative story about Trump? You're a bunch of fucking hacks and @TiffanyHaddish is a https://t.co/EMzjRFx8fa— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 1, 2019
This is the price of fame when you're a comic. I was so lucky that there wasn't a Snapchat/IG when I was starting out on my first big tour. No REAL comic never bombs.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 1, 2019
You are a hilarious, incredible talent @TiffanyHaddish and I can't wait to see you live! Ignore the haters! https://t.co/2nhpemOsGV
