 Brief Excerpt from cover story written by:  Lacey Rose  Before that gut-busting turn in  Girls Trip , before she parlayed the buzz into a  Saturday Night Live  hosting gig, a best-selling memoir, a popular stand-up special, the cover of  Time 100  and a series of lucrative pacts with practically every major outlet, from Netflix to HBO, Haddish was just a girl from South Central Los Angeles with lofty goals and little means. Her world changed the first time at 8, when her mother suffered a major brain injury in a car accident. After a few months in the hospital, she returned home an angry, abusive version of her former self. Haddish, whose Eritrean immigrant dad had vanished when she was just 3, recalls honing her comedy as a way to make her mother laugh — not to entertain so much as forestall the next outbreak of abuse. It rarely worked for long. "She'd laugh in the moment," says Haddish, "and then she'd remember why she was mad later and come back and whoop my ass."

“I tried to do $50 here, $100 there; once I had the whole $300, he was like, ‘I don’t want that,’” she laughs. “He’s like, ‘Get your car fixed, Tiffany. Why you still in the Geo Metro? Get the fuck out the Geo Metro.’”
