Who's your favorite comedian: Tiffany Haddish or Amy Schumer?
Although Tiffany Haddish bombed at a New Year's Eve stand-up comedy show last year, fans defended her, and The Hollywood Reporter's Lacey Rose dubbed her the new Queen of Comedy last June.
At 38, Haddish is doing celebrity on her own terms, unselfconsciously and filter-free. At times, you may wonder if maybe she didn't get her copy of the Celebrity Rule Book — but it's far more likely she did and never bothered to crack it open. She famously repeats red carpet looks — expect her white Alexander McQueen gown to resurface when she hosts the MTV Movie & TV Awards on June 18 — and surfs from talk show couch to talk show couch dishing on adventures with her growing roster of A-list friends. Toss out any famous name, and there's a decent chance Haddish has a good story.
But in 2016, Vogue's Jonathan Van Meter said Amy Schumer is changing the game:
"It is as unself-consciously real an approach as one might expect from someone who has arrived at such a vertiginous place in our culture, a celebrity whose every move is being documented and judged. It’s probably why her comedy has connected with so many on such a deep level..." Amy Schumer is not the least bit concerned with being likable, which, oddly enough, has made millions love her—although she does have more than her fair share of haters and trolls, she says, mostly men who “don’t like my disgusting feminism."
