TIFFANY HADDISH
FRIDAY, JANUARY 17 (8 pm)
GRAND SIERRA RESORT – GRAND THEATRE
 
Despite the crappy hand dealt to Tiffany Haddish early in life, this incredible woman has overcome enormous obstacles, only to emerge inspirational and successful. The Southeast Los Angeles native comedian endured a difficult childhood, six years of which were spent in the “foster-system.”  Through the hardest of times, Haddish discovered that comedy was her ultimate outlet for staying positive through. And at 17, a brilliant social worker gave her the choice between psychiatric therapy to address her “problems” or attending the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp.  She chose the later.  Great decision, Tiffany!  If you’re up for a good laugh now, click HERE to see her talk about “The Ass That Kills.”  And if you want to enjoy her show live in Reno Friday night, buy your tickets at GrandSierraResort.com.
