The failure every performer dreads the most is forgetting their lines. Well, Tiffany Haddish pretty much forgot her entire set at Miami’s James L. Knight Center. Dan Bova’s account “Tiffany Haddish Bombed Onstage and Gave Us All a Great Lesson in Dealing With Failure” describes the hapless mishap…

  • “According to those in attendance, forgot her material and stumbled through the rest of her set as audience members booed and headed for the exit. Haddish was well-aware that things weren’t going swimmingly, and was quoted saying, ‘This is gonna be on TMZ or whatever like ‘Tiffany Haddish Ate a Bag of Dicks on New Year’s Eve!’ By all accounts, she then grabbed a bottle of Ciroc and started drinking with the remaining audience as she wrapped things up.”

Her embrace of the failure came with her confess-all Tweet the following day…

Bova reflected, “She owned up to her screw-up, vowed to learn from it, and is clearly moving on…Haddish’s response was as powerful for what it said as it was for what it did not. She didn’t get defensive. She didn’t make excuses. And most importantly for her own mental health, she’s not dwelling on the bad.”
