Comedian Tiffany Haddish is ready to showcase six of her favorite comedians to Netflix users in the new trailer for “They Ready” season 2.

The trailer for the Emmy-nominated stand-up comedy series dropped Jan. 19 and premieres on Feb. 2. It will feature Godfrey (Godfrey C. Danchimah, Jr.), Erin Jackson, Tony Woods, Kimberly Clark, Barbara Carlyle and Dean Edwards.

“This season, these comics, are veterans, they are professionals at tickling the soul and I want to give them the kind of shine they deserve,” Haddish said in the trailer. “This season I purposefully made sure everybody was Black, because I’m Black.

Haddish, who celebrated her Bat Mitzvah in her 2019 comedy special “Black Mitzvah,” has discussed her Jewish and Black identities in her comedy. She’s also made it a priority to help other comedians step into the spotlight since her booming success as an author, comedian, “Kids Say the Darndest Things” host and actor.

“There’s so many great comedians out there that never ever get any shine,” Kimberly Clark said in the trailer. “When Tiffany called me I was like, ‘Wow.’”

Of all of Haddish’s achievements—including an Emmy win for hosting “Saturday Night Live,” a Grammy nomination for her audiobook recording of “The Last Black Unicorn,” and most recently stealing the show during Amazon Prime’s end of the year all-female comedy special “Yearly Departed”—  she told the Journal in 2019 she she is proudest of “They Ready.”

“I was able to give an opportunity to other comedians and it fills my heart with joy because it changed their lives,” she said. “I see them living their dreams now and that makes everything worth it.”
