Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong are two of the hottest stars in comedy and now they’re co-starring in an animated comedy series for Netflix. Tuca and Birdie are two birds who are thirty-something besties and roomies who have to split their nest when Bertie gets series with a boy bird. Tuca is a cocky carefree toucan whose personality is a lot like you might expect with Tiffany Haddish voicing the part. Bertie is a daydreaming songbird with a relatable helping of anxiety.
BoJack Horseman fans will love Tuca & Bertie when it arrives on Netflix on May 3, and not just because there are animals who act like humans. The sensibility and the sense of humor are similar and that’s probably because the series comes from the creative minds behind BoJack Horseman.
Ali Wong took the stand up world by storm with back to back first and second stand up specials that were brilliant and beloved. Baby Cobra turned her into an instant superstar and Hard Knock Wife was a grand slam follow up. Tiffany Haddish has been on the verge of breaking big for a few years now, and her co-starring role in the comedy movie Girls Night pushed it all over the top. She’s a star and will stay that way.
