Tiffany Haddish Details Her Dinners with Barbra Streisand & Taylor Swift

I’m not going to compete. Even when you walk out
starting your stand up special, you’re such a great dancer. You really are. Well, thank you. You know, I danced for like
11 years at bar mitzvahs and executive parties. I did not know that. I had no idea. I’m a professional
energy producer. Yes you are. I produce energy, baby. You certainly do. So we ran into each other. What was it– At the VMAs. Yeah, at the VMAs. And she came up to
me and she said, I want to be on your show. And I hadn’t seen the movie yet. And as soon as I saw
the movie I was like, you’re going to be on the show. And you just looked at me
you and were like, uh huh. And I’m like, girl, don’t worry. You gonna know. It’s all good Ellen. You gonna know. I spoke it into existence now. You certainly did. You spoke a lot of
things into existence. I mean, your life is crazy. And what you’ve
accomplished is amazing. And if you don’t know her story,
and when you hear her story and read her story,
it’s amazing. So congratulations for doing
what you’re doing in the world. And doing [? that you’re ?]
doing right. [CHEERING] I mean, the stories of going
through the foster system and everything, the whole
system, and all the families that you were with,
and everything that you went through is amazing. And now look at you. And you’re hanging out with– you’re hanging out with
Barbra Streisand now. That part, she my sister. Yeah? Mmhmm. We related. So you met just recently. Yeah, we recently met
at Ron Meyer’s house. He’s like chairman over
at Universal, whatever. And he invited me over
for dinner and a movie. Yeah. And then there she
was, Barbra Streisand. And she’s like, Tiffany. And I’m like, what up, girl? And we got to talking and stuff. And I had informed her about
Cardi B and how like, you know, she just like transformed
her whole life. And like how she’s a
role model to children, and how we have to be
role models to young girls to show that you can empower
yourself and you can have whatever you want in life. And she was like,
who is Cardi B? And I was like,
what, you don’t know? “Lil, you can’t mess
with me if you wanted.” I sang the song for
her, everything. She’s like, sounds catchy. She’s funny. Yeah. So she’s like, I
got to check it out. And then we started
talking about– I told her I was from
South Central Los Angeles. And she told me she
was from Brooklyn. And then we found out
we both from the hood. You know, we both ghetto chicks. Yeah. Except it’s just
different times. Different ghetto,
different times. Different ghettos,
different times. Right. Different demographics,
all of that. Right. And yet so similar. Yes, so similar. Yes. You know, she lived
in a Jewish hood. I lived in a black
neighborhood, but I was Jewish. I’m still Jewish. I’m a black Jew. That story is crazy, too, that
you lived with a Jewish family after living with a
Hispanic family that taught you to be scared of Jews. And it’s like– crazy. And then you had a potluck
dinner at Taylor Swift’s house. Yes, yes. OK, so this is what happened. So I did SNL, right? And then let me tell
you what happened. So Taylor was like, Tiffany,
oh my god, I like you. We got to hang out. I was like, yes. We got to hang out, girl. Let’s hang out. And then I told her, you
know, I’ve been gardening. I said, look, if I come
over you’ve got to make me some BBQ chicken, some
potato salad, and a brisket. And she was like, OK. And I said, I’m going to
bring some collard greens because I’ve got my own
garden and I’ve got greens. And when I pick my
greens, I smile. I smile when I pick the greens. And then when I wash
the greens, I smile. Then when I cut
them up, I smile. And then when I
cook them, I smile. They’re called joyful greens. [CHEERING] So when I get over there,
right, when I get over there, she got all this food. It was so good. First off, Taylor can cook, OK? She can cook. Like the chicken was bomb. All right. And she made corn bread. Bomb. So good. And then she ate my greens. She was like, oh
my gosh, Tiffany. I have been wanting
greens for so long. I go to all these different
places and get greens and they’re never good. These greens are so delicious. And I was like, girl, because
them is joyful greens. Joyful. That’s right. You have to smile when you pick
them, smile when you wash them. So– But I want to tell
you something. OK. OK, cause you know, I’ve been
watching you for years, right? And I remember being
a young lady watching your show, your sitcom. And I used to be like,
I want to be on– I want to be on her show. Then I was like, I want
to just work with her. She a comic. I’m a comic now. I could open up for her. And then I start telling my
friends and they were like, you know she’s like a
squeaky clean comedian. And I was like, well, then
I’ll just be watching her. [LAUGHTER] Because I’m not. No. I’m not. No. It would be different. I would open for
you and then leave. And then you would be there. Right. Yeah, exactly. No, no. No, no. I could clean it up. I’ve done bar mitzvahs,
I can clean it up. And executive parties. Now, when you say
you have a garden, do you do a lot of gardening? And what else do you grow? OK, so I do have a garden. I have kale. I’ve got strawberries right now. I’ve got eggplants. You know why. I don’t know why. We’ll talk later. I got cucumbers, avocado tree– Oh, I know why the cucumbers. I got beats. Oh yeah, I know why. Greens, potatoes, yams,
you name it, I got it. Where do you grow
all these thing? In my backyard. Wow, where do you live? South Central LA. [CHEERING] You want to come over? Uh huh. You I do. I got two dogs and a cat, too. And you know where the cat from? She from the movie
I did called Keanu. So it’s two famous in the house. Oh wow. You took the cat from the movie. Yeah, I took the
cat from the movie. So do you own a house? Did you buy a house? Well, kind of. Yeah. Because I’m just asking,
because you’re doing very well. And is that like something
you’ve rewarded yourself with. What have you done– No, I got that house before
I started doing well. OK. So I’m able to make the
payments on time now. I see. That’s good.
