This summer’s surprise comedy hit is “Girls Trip,” a genuinely funny film with finely crafted characters. It’s about four lifelong friends who renew their sisterhood during a trip to New Orleans. Critics agree that the breakout performer is stand-up comedian Tiffany Haddish, 37. Her father left right after her birth (running from the law for selling fake green cards). She found him in 2008. He told her he was an Eritrean Jew. That would make Tiffany the most famous American of Ethiopian/Eritrean Jewish ancestry.
Haddish has said in two video interviews that her father, who died earlier this year, was an Eritrean Jew.
