She’ll record the special in early 2019, with Netflix set to release later in the year.

This marks a move from her last special, which aired on Showtime.

“Tiffany Haddish is a force,” said Lisa Nishimura, vice president of original documentary and comedy for Netflix. “Hilariously funny, brash and self-effacing, she’s an incredible artist who is winning over audiences while breaking barriers, and we are tremendously proud that she will showcase her formidable talent on Netflix.”

Tiffany Haddish Wears Dress For The Third Time On Stage At The Oscars

Tiffany Haddish has done it again! She changed out of her Eritreann princess look from the red carpet and into her favorite white Alexander McQueen gown to present an award.

Allow me to refresh your memory, this is the same $4,000 dress she wore twice before at major events. While most would consider multiple wears a fashion fail, Haddish calls it smart consumerism. 

“Like this dress!” she explained during her SNL taping. “I wore it on the red carpet for Girls’ Trip and my whole team, they told me, ‘Tiffany, you cannot wear that dress on SNL. You already wore it. It’s taboo to wear it twice,’ and I said, ‘I don’t give a dang about no taboo.’ 

Haddish went on to explain: “I spent a lot of money on this dress!” the 37-year-old comedian revealed. “This dress cost way more than my mortgage … this is an Alexander McQueen, okay? It’s a $4,000 dress. I’m [going to] wear this dress multiple times! Real talk. You might see this dress in two sketches tonight, okay?”

On Sunday evening at the Academy Awards, Haddish walked out on stage in her beloved dress, with her heels in her hands and a pair of shearling slippers on her feet. Leave it to Haddish to bring comedy to the look and the show.

I better not trip about being pictured on social media , in the same Fashion Nova top twice in a month. For 4 grands ill wear it 4,000 more times 😯😯😯👌👌👌
