Her father was a refugee from Eritrea and was from an Ethiopian Jewish family. Her mother was an African-American, small business owner. After Haddish's father left when she was three years old, her mother remarried and went on to have more children; Haddish has two half-sisters and two half-brothers.
Due to a family accident, Haddish at the age of nine and the oldest of her five siblings became the primary caregiver for her family.
At 12, Haddish and her siblings were put into foster care where they were temporarily separated from each other. While there, she used comedy as a way to cope with being in situations with new people. When she was 15, she and her siblings were reunited under the care of their grandmother.
