Tiffany Haddish records podcast with Dax Shepard right after car accident: 'I'm not bleeding, I'm not broken'

The comedian said the crash left her "trembling" during her appearance on "Armchair Expert."

Not even a car accident could stop Tiffany Haddish from making her Armchair Expert debut.

During her May 6 appearance on the Dax Shepard-hosted podcast, the comedian spent the first several minutes unpacking the aftermath of the frightening car accident that she encountered on her way to tape the episode.

"I’m kinda worried about you," Shepard told Haddish in the recording’s opening seconds, offering tea and snacks while she got settled. Although the Bad Boys: Ride or Die actress assured Shepard, his co-host Monica Padman, and the audience that she was uninjured, she admitted to being shaken up.

"When the car spun around, I was sitting there, I was trembling a little bit, and I was like, 'Where did my phone go?' Because it flew out of the holder, and it hit me in the arm and the leg," she recalled. "I picked the phone up off the floor, and then I was like, let me try to get the car out of the middle of the road. Thank God nobody was coming from the other direction."

Shepard, who picked her up from the scene of the accident, interjected: "Yeah, because you got knocked into oncoming traffic, and thankfully there was no traffic."

Haddish said that while it was a struggle, she managed to eventually move the car out of the danger zone. "It fought,” Shepard observed. “There was a big long rubber mark where you had driven it down the road with three wheels.”

When Shepard noted that several pedestrians in the area had recognized her, Haddish joked that she considered playing it up for the crowd. "I was trying to decide if I was going to act like I was f----- up," she said. "My first thought was, 'Jump out this car and cuss these motherf------ out.' But then I was like, 'F---, you’re famous, do not behave that way. That’s inappropriate.'"

Referencing the other driver involved in the incident, she continued, "And then I see the guy get out the car, and he's walking towards me. And he's like, 'Are you okay? He said, 'Oh, s---. I hit my favorite person.' And I'm holding the phone, and I'm like, 'Who do I call first? Who do I call first?' And I'm trembling. And I'm like, 'Did I f--- this guy before? Do I know him? Maybe I bought weed from him back in the day?’”

Haddish said she eventually called her sister and during the wait, realized that she did in fact recognize the other driver from her time at the L.A. comedy club, The Comedy Store. Shepard admitted the driver was "inordinately handsome" as if cast in a movie, joking "It's a meet cute!"

Later, Haddish wondered aloud whether her face was swollen, admitting, "It hurts."

Shepard then asked, "Do you want to go home? I'll drive you home," to which Haddish responded, "No, because I'm just going to sit around and cry.”

While they continued recording, Padman and Shepard sent someone to get ice for the comedian’s face, and marveled at Haddish’s decision to power through.

"Most people in your situation — who are famous, who get in a car accident and are coming to a podcast — would probably just forget the podcast, who cares?" Padman noted. "You called, you said specifically, 'Hey I got in this car accident and I’ll still do it.' And I was overhearing this like, are you kidding me?"

"I'm not bleeding, I'm not broken," Haddish said. "I can still talk and communicate."
