Tiffany Haddish Named Host Of ‘Kids Say the Darndest Things’ Revival On ABC

Tiffany Haddish has a new gig.

The comedienne has been sanctioned to host the revival of Kids Say the Darndest Things on ABC. Haddish will also be the new upcoming show's executive producer.

“When I was dreaming of stars I wanted to bring to ABC, Tiffany Haddish was top of my list. Tiffany starring in and producing this iconic series is everything I hoped for, " said ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke.

Haddish is just as elated as Burke is.“I’m excited to hear what kids have to say these days because I can’t understand what they are saying on social media. They’re using too many abbreviations," Haddish said.

Earlier versions of the show were hosted by Bill Cosby and Steve Harvey. The show's history dates back to 1945, featuring live audience and taped segments.
