Tiffany Haddish Jokes About Being 'White on Paper' During Hilarious 'Late Show' Interview - Watch Here!

Tiffany Haddish made her very first ever visit to The Late Show on Tuesday (August 15) and talked all about her great year, coming up in comedy, and starring in Jay-Z‘s Friends parody.

“Any chance that I get to play a white woman, I am there! I’m Phoebe on there,” the 37-year-old Girls Trip star told host Stephen Colbert about the spoof. “I’m a white woman on paper; I’ve been a white woman for the last five, ten years now.”

“What do you mean ‘white on paper?’” Colbert asked.

“Like seven years ago, the census had come around, right? The census came and they showed up to my house, and they asked me what my nationality was, ’cause they was counting to see how many black people are in the neighborhood. I was like, ‘What do you mean? I’m American.’ And he was like, ‘No, what’s your race?’ I was like, ‘Oh! So, we’re doing that today? We’re bringing racism in my front door on this day? What are you, colorblind?’ And he said, ‘Yes,’” Tiffany joked. “I was like, ‘Ooh! This is my chance.’ I had like a That’s So Raven moment; I went into my brain and I was like, ‘Girl, this is your chance. What do you mean this is my chance? Obama said it’s time for change; you could be whatever you want to be today.’ And I was like, ‘You’re right! I can be whatever I want to be.’ And I looked at him and said, ‘I’m car-casian.’ Because I got a car and I know a lot of Asians, so I just put that together. I told him was ‘car-casian’ and he said OK. He checked the white box and it has been fantastic. Oh, my goodness.”

Don’t forget to check out Tiffany in her newest comedy special She Ready: From Hood To Hollywood premiering on Showtime on Friday (August 18)!
