The seemingly ubiquitous Tiffany Haddish refuses to stop and come up for air. She popped in on the “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Monday to crack naughty jokes alongside writers Amber Ruffin and Jenny Hagel in the newly minted “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell” segment.

The bit starts with Ruffin and Hagel, an African American and a lesbian, respectively, delivering the punchlines to Seth’s opening statements that would probably be offensive to the Black and gay communities if told by the Caucasian, heterosexual Meyers.

Haddish joined to thundersous applause at the end to offer assistance with a joke about Denzel Washington’s upcoming Broadway run in “The Iceman Cometh.”

Watch the entire segment below.

In yet even more Haddish happenings, the comedianne hinted that she may be draped in her famous Alexander McQueen gown for a fourth time when she hosts the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards. This is usually very taboo in Hollywood, to be seen in a dress more than once.

But with the stacks of paper that Haddish had to haul over to the store to get that dress, she figures she’s going to get all her money’s worth out of it.

“It’s an Alexander McQueen dress, and you will see that again!,” she told Jimmy Fallon on Friday. “I gotta wear it multiple times because I gotta get my money’s worth and I haven’t been paid not one time that I wore the dress yet.”

Haddish first unfurled the $4K frock before the public at the July premiere of her hit comedy Girls Trip. She also wore it in November on “Saturday Night Live” and at the Oscars last month.

What’s remarkable about Haddish’s idiosyncrasy is that she has unwittingly given comfort to a fan by being bold and unapologetic about wearing the same clothes in public multiple times.

She said, “I been wearing it repeatedly and the thing that I love most is that people have been reaching out to me. Like, this one girl reached out to me and she goes to a private school and she’s going on a scholarship, and she’s like, ‘Tiffany, I only have two pairs of tennis shoes and one jacket, and all these girls make fun of me, they say I wear the same jacket and the same shoes all the time, and then I saw you on SNL and then I saw you at the Oscars (in the same dress), and now I tell them, ‘I’m just Tiffany Haddishing!’

“I’m like, ‘That’s right! Rock that!’” Tiffany laughed. “Then all the people are like, ‘Oh my God, do you know Tiffany? Do you know Tiffany?’ So I’ve been following her on Instagram.”
