Tiffany Haddish intentionally fashioned herself a red leather suit to look like Eddie Murphy from his 1983 HBO special. As she said onstage in the second season of Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready, “I just want a meme put together, like who wore it better: Eddie or Tiffany?” But is Haddish delirious to deliver a stand-up comedy show during the pandemic, or just a crazy genius? A couple of years ago, Haddish flexed her newly-gained star power with Netflix to host and produce a stand-up showcase to feature some of the ladies she performed with in the comedy club trenches. Haddish’s “She Ready” catchphrase begat They Ready. Some of Haddish’s handpicked comedians were more ready than others. For season two, Haddish turned to more seasoned professionals, some of whom she looked to when she was on the come-up, some of whom mentored her and offered her sage advice, and all of whom deserve more attention and credits from the industry and fans than they’ve earned so far. Each gets about 15-20 minutes to perform in individual episodes, with testimonials from Haddish. The producers were wise enough to keep the episodes shorter than the first season, in order to showcase each of the comedian’s best material better.
