Whoopi Goldberg is known for her one-of-a-kind humor, genius wit and unmatched snark, so when she was contacted by fellow comedian Tiffany Haddish for advice prior to her “Saturday Night Live” debut, Goldberg didn’t disappoint in delivering some golden advice.
According to HuffPost, when Haddish sat down with the New York Times to discuss her successful year, which included her role in the hit film “Girls Trip,” her stint hosting SNL — and being the first black female comic to do so — came up. In prepping for the show, HuffPost says Haddish found that Goldberg had appeared on the show, so she decided to give the veteran comic a call for some pre-show advice.
“I said, ‘Have you ever done ‘SNL’?’ Haddish asked Goldberg. “She said, ‘Only a sketch.’ I said, ‘You never hosted?’ And she said, ‘You the first, bitch, you better do a good job.'”
And a good job she did!
