Tiffany Haddish Gets All Ugly Face Over Tyler Perry During Laugh Factory Routine [Video]

According to Anita Bennett’s UrbanHollywood411, funny woman Tiffany Haddish not only brought the house down Saturday night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles with laughter, but ended up breaking down in tears herself.

During her set at the famous Sunset Strip comedy club, Haddish joked about being thrifty, taking a sabbatical from sex, receiving a car from Tyler Perry and being gifted the wardrobe from her upcoming film, Night School, with Kevin Hart.

Haddish warned fans they’ll see the outfits over and over, because she believes in recycling.

She also joked about her role in Perry’s upcoming comedy, Nobody’s Fool. She said the director’s rapid-fire production method caught her off guard.

“We shot that whole movie in ten days. I don’t know if it’s gone be any good,” she said to laughter.

“I don’t know if this sh–’s gone be funny. I don’t know what the continuity is gonna look like,” she joked. “I don’t know if in one scene, I’m gonna have three hairdos. I don’t know.”

Then someone in the audience yelled, “Tell us about the car!”

Will Tamron Hall Get The Last Laugh In Megyn Kelly Deal?

Uh oh. Are the suits over at NBC freaking out cause they are worried that after dumping popular host Tamron Hall for Megyn Kelly that Kelly’s upcoming morning replacement show won’t appeal to younger people and non-whites? Yep, that’s the fear and the predicament the network finds itself in after Hall’s departure.

According to the Daily Beast, the network is freaking out because the performance of Kelly’s current Sunday night show has let execs in a “total panic” about her morning show, which will debut on Sept. 25. As we reported back in January, the network made room for Kelly by axing the 9am hour of the long-running “Today Show” that was co-hosted by Hall and Al Roker.

“A lot of people were watching the [Sunday] magazine show to try to get a sense of her appeal to the daytime demographic and a sense of how she would be outside of the Fox environment,” one insider told The Daily Beast. “Fox News skews very male… I always tend to think of her as more of a guy’s girl than a girl’s girl… It’s extremely challenging, and I’m not sure Megyn’s personality really connects with women.”

Here’s what TV news analyst Andrew Tyndall had to say about Kelly’s Sunday show and its appeal or lack thereof especially to non-whites:

“The Sunday show laid such an egg that any claims that she had automatic star power, to get people in the door to see what she was doing, have been disavowed… The stardom of the celebrity anchor was a phenomenon of the 1980s back when [flamboyant ABC News president] Roone Arledge was around. In this day and age, the shows make the anchors, not the other way around.”

On the other hand, things are looking up for Hall. She’s working on her own syndicated daytime talk show with the backing of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Like they say, when one door closes, another opens.

Cheeto Trump Endorses Police Brutality, Cops Laugh and Cheer [VIDEO]

This is exactly why Cheeto Trump, and the lowering of the bar for human decency, is so dangerous. Yesterday (July 28), while speaking to a room full of cops in Brentwood, Long Island, La Naranja encourage police brutality. 

Trump’s speech was about curbing the MS-13 gang in LI. But he couldn’t help himself and started talking out the side of his neck.

“When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, I said, please don’t be too nice,” said Trump at Suffolk County Community College. “Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody — don’t hit their head. I said, you can take the hand away, okay?”

Yep, the cops–with what looked like not a single officer of color in the bunch—laughed and cheered.

Trump also referred to the “bloodstained killing fields” of Long Island. Please, let us know when someone finds those. Send a photo so we know that it’s real.

To the credit of the LI cops, their leadership released a message admonishing Trump’s rhetoric.

“The SCPD has strict rules & procedures relating to the handling of prisoners,” wrote the Suffolk County PD on Twitter. “Violations of those rules are treated extremely seriously. As a department, we do not and will not tolerate roughing up of prisoners.”

Good to know there are grown ups on the force.

Why You Shouldn’t Laugh at Someone Who Stutters

The bar is packed, and I have to lean across the table to introduce myself. “Hi I’m…” The usual mouth-gapping, eye-opening silence. Followed by the repeated putter of “Ka” “Ka” “Ka.” She stares for a second, maybe two. And then she laughs. She looks around the table, reaching out for someone to join her private joke. Met with blank faces from my friends and half-smiles from strangers, she turns back to me, still braying. My mouth is not ready to smile. Even if I wanted to, I’m not able to save her. I’m mid stutter, still reaching deep inside of myself, clawing down into my lungs and my throat, to drag my name out of my mouth and into the open. I greedily inhale a fistful of air and try again, “Hi, I’m K K K.”

Improbably, her laughter continues. I watch as one of my friends, the one who knows her, leans over and whispers something. The distraction loosens something in me and finally I spit out “Katherine.” My friend pulls away from her ear. The girl looks confused. I hope that my friend has told her to stop being so rude (I honestly hope for something more expletive-ridden), but I know she has told her I stutter. The first thing she says is “sorry.” And in that silence it doesn’t sound like she is apologizing for her insensitivity — it sounds like she is sorry that I stutter. Sorry that I have a name that has never escaped my mouth unscathed. Sorry that I am who I am.

As the writer Benson Bobrick once wrote, in those moments my heart hardens against her. She is an adult who has been through years of education, someone who has all the capacity necessary for empathy. She is a magazine editor, a label she had thrown around like a badge of honor moments before. She should know better. We all should.

I don’t say, “that’s okay.” It isn’t. Instead, I smile and I tell her that I stutter. Before she says sorry again, I tell her that my name takes me a while. She nods. Mute now. The hurt, angry side of me wants to tell her off, to make her feel small and repentant. The stronger side of me wants to educate her, to teach her about stuttering. Instead, I motion towards my other friend and she introduces herself. It is over in less than five seconds. I pipe up as she finishes, “That was far too easy.” We all laugh. It sounds different.

The thing is, I believe in laughter. I believe in smiling in the midst of a stutter, in telling someone that there is nothing to be afraid of and bringing my listener towards me. I believe in laughing at all the ridiculous situations that my stutter creates. And yet, I know that there is something cruel in laughing at the spectacle of stuttering.

So why do people do it? In all honesty, it is rarely done out of malice. More often it is done out of surprise. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, we expect the world to be a linear and predictable place. If we hear someone speaking “fluently” one moment, we expect that to continue to the next. When it does not, when it is interpreted and broken apart, we are shocked. I know I am. And so, in our surprise, we laugh. It is a natural reaction.

Yet, it is a response that we need to curb. We need to be kind. We need to resist our most basic and uniformed urges.

I spent years of my life expecting my listeners to be mind-readers, expecting them to react in the perfect way to my stutter. And yet, I realize that I’m not at all sure that I would know the best way to respond if I did not stutter myself. It is not always an easy thing to behold and there has never been a manual for our audience. It is not as simple as it could be, not everyone wants the same reaction. Some stutterers like people to fill in their words when they get stuck; others can’t imagine anything worse (I fall into the latter category). The best our listener can do is to ask, but that requires a level of trust that is not present in every interaction.

And so, we must be our own ambassadors, we must lead the way. Having interviewed hundreds of stutterers I know that there is no one single correct response that we require from our listeners. And yet, there are standards that seems to be largely universal. These are the best guidelines that I know:

  • Look beyond the mask of stuttering. Listen to our words, not how we say them. React to us, just as you would to anyone else.
  • Keep coming towards us. Don’t frown or turn away. Don’t make us feel too monstrous to behold.
  • Keep eye contact, but don’t turn it into a staring competition.
  • Be patient. The words will come, they may just take a few extra seconds. Don’t give up on us and shut down the conversation. Definitely don’t walk away.
  • Don’t laugh at us. Don’t pity us or mock us. If you smile out of kindness that is something else. That is wonderful. If you laugh alongside us, we will all feel less alone.

Above all else, show your compassion.
