Tiffany Haddish is up to something.
And so is Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amy Sedaris and Chelsea Peretti. Haddish posted a photo to her Instagram yesterday of a scene that definitely looks like a Friendsgiving dinner. I see wine, I see two types of mashed potatoes, I see a weird autumnal centerpiece...seems innocent enough.
Except for her caption. Following the hashtag #SHEREADY, Haddish urges her followers to "find out what we're up to this Thanksgiving." Which, of course, begs the question: What the hell are they up to this Thanksgiving?!
We can only hope.
I was hard-pressed to find any more clues on the four other ladies' social media accounts, but was met with dead end after dead end. Haddish used that same phrase for her stand-up special "Tiffany Haddish: SHE READY! From the Hood to Hollywood!" for the SHOWTIME comedy club, so maybe we'll be seeing an extra special comedy special featuring the four wonderful women she hosted for Friendsgiving?
We can only hope.
Each of these women is a powerhouse by her own right. Haddish was doing stand-up comedy and small-time acting roles before her big-time hit, "Girls Trip," and now she's running around Hollywood in other starring roles and wearing the same white dress to as many television appearances as possible.
Poehler got her start in comedy at Chicago's Second City and co-founded the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre before joining "Saturday Night Live" as first a regular cast member and then co-anchor of "Weekend Update." Then she was Leslie Knope in "Parks and Recreation," and the rest is history.
Rudolph had a similar start as a cast member on "SNL," and then she went on to do major films like "Grown Ups," "Bridesmaids" and "Sisters." Most recently, she and Fred Armisen are playing a married couple who venture into the unknown for the first time in 12 years on "Forever."
Peretti is Gina Linetti on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," so her posse for the last five years has included Andy Samberg -- it's no wonder she's in with Poehler and Rudolph. More than a sidekick television character, though, Peretti has been on "Kroll Show" and "Tosh.0" and wrote some episodes of "Parks and Rec." In other words, her comedy credits are well earned.
And Sedaris, well...hosts "At Home With Amy Sedaris," which I can't help you with if you haven't seen it. Sedaris, too, worked with Second City in Chicago and is basically a jack of all trades when it comes to comedy television.
In short, each of these women are inspirational in not only the world of comedy, but the world of women in Hollywood in general. The fact that there's a potential collaboration on the horizon is almost too much to think about -- but you bet I'll be staying tuned in for more info.
