Tiffany got into comedy at age 17 after she was given an ultimatum to either go to psychiatric treatment to help her recover from childhood trauma or go to the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp. She was mentored by the Wayans brothers, Richard Pryor, and Dane Cook and says comedy “literally saved my life.” Before her success on camera, Tiffany was homeless and lived in her car through her 20s. She married and divorced William Stewart twice — filing for divorce once in 2011 and again in 2013. In her memoir, Tiffany claimed she suffered a miscarriage after William physically abused her.
