AceShowbiz - Tiffany Haddish did not have a really good night on New Year's Eve when she performed in front of a sold out crowd at James L. Knight Center in Miami. The comedian and actress bombed her show so hard that a lot of audience members got up and walked out of the venue.
During the show, Haddish appeared to forget a few of her jokes and realized the jokes she could remember, like her mother being in a mental institution or her friends asking for money, fell flat. Seeing how unhappy patrons started exiting the comedy show, she said, "This is weird for me. Now. This is going to be on TMZ or whatever."
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) 1 Januari 2019
The "Girls Trip" actress eventually tried to change things up by opening a bottle of Ciroc and drinking with the crowd. She also invited audience to tell jokes. "F**k it," she said. "I really wanted to talk about some stuff and can't remember none of it."
Haddish confirmed the report on Tuesday, January 1, saying on Twitter, "Yes this happened... I wish it was better Miami." She then promised that she would not bomb her show ever again and vowed to give her fans a good time during her set. "I prayed on it and I have a strong feeling this will never happened again."

Her show might have not gone well because she partied all night the day before, as she stated in her Instagram video. However, in the video, she reassured fans that she was still ready for her New Year's Eve gig. The result apparently said otherwise.
Despite how hard she bombed the show, Haddish received praises from fellow comedian Alonzo Bodden, who had nothing but good things to say about how she handled the show. He said to TMZ that her reaction was classy and professional, explaining that it's not uncommon for comedians to bomb their shows.
