Tiffany Haddish opened her “SNL” monologue by talking about how she’s now a star, but doesn’t have nearly as much money as people think. She then talked about her childhood in foster care before making jokes about Donald Trump and about the recent sexual harassment claims. Mostly, she did a routine of all different standup jokes, including a bunch about how she always wears the white dress that she had on. See the video below of Haddish’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue.

This marks Haddish’s debut as the host on the the sketch comedy series. And even more significantly, it’s the very time a black female comedienne has ever been the host of “SNL” in all of its 43 seasons. Along with a photo of herself looking pumped on Instagram, Haddish noted the milestone by writing, “This Saturday, 11/11 on #SNL!! Can you believe I will be the very #first black female comedian host?!? #SheReady.”

It’s been a banner year for Haddish, who starred alongside Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall in the hit comedy Girls Trip. In addition to that film’s success over the summer, she appeared in in August in her first Showtime comedy special, “Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! From The Hood To Hollywood.” She’s also currently filming the comedy Night School with Kevin Hart.

And in early December, Haddish is set to release her first book, The Last Black Unicorn, a collection of essays that take readers from her difficult childhood in South Central L.A. to her present-date life. Chapters in the book touch on how Haddish grew up poor, without a father, and in foster care, but was able to survive through her comedy. She also discusses her romantic failures, as well as having once been homeless to becoming a professional success.

Additionally, right after “SNL,” Haddish continues on her “She Ready” comedy tour, which is set to run through April 2018. In exactly one week, the comedienne will be at the Cleveland Improv. From there, she’ll travel across the country, playing comedy clubs in every major city, including New York, Chicago, Boston and Las Vegas.
