Tiffany Haddish has become synonymous with relatable punch lines and a good time.
In 2017, she rose to fame thanks to her starring role in Girls Trip (it scored $126 million at the box office), her collection of personal essays called The Last Black Unicorn, plus the fact that she continuously wore a $4,000 white Alexander McQueen dress to just about every high-profile occasion, including Saturday Night Live, where her hosting duties pleased even the toughest critics. Throw in run-ins with Beyoncé, a cameo in Drake’s “Nice For What” video, and a spot on the TIME 100 list and you’ve got yourself the recipe to making the A-list.
Now, Haddish has scored another accomplishment: the hosting gig at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards, where she’ll introduce performers like Mustard and Nick Jonas, along with presenters like Zendaya. Plain and simple: she’s made it. But is there a numerical way of calculating just how successful Haddish has become?
Haddish’s funds are tough to calculate, but unconfirmed estimates find that her net worth is about $2 million. In addition to earning money from her role in Girls Trip and previous acting jobs on shows like OWN’s If Loving You Is Wrong and NBC’s The Carmichael Show, she also released a successful 2017 Showtime special called Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From Hollywood to the Hood! and wrapped up her 2018 #SheReady Tour in May.
The star recently scored a deal with Netflix for a comedy special in which she’s rumored to make $800,000 (despite criticism that she accepted a pay check far too low). Other 2018 jobs include appearances in TBS’s The Last OG and a role in Universal’s film Night School, plus upcoming roles in The Kitchen, The Temp (she’ll serve as executive producer), and The Oath. She’ll also star in Tyler Perry’s The List, and as if that weren’t enough, she landed a first-look deal with HBO in January.
Ironically, Haddish poked fun at her rumored net worth during her SNL appearance last fall, saying that she “ain’t seen this money. Where is this $2 million? What do I gotta do to get this $2 million?”
Thanks to her busy 2018 lineup, it sounds like she’ll see the Benjamins roll in this year.
