Tiffany Haddish is set to return to Miami, the location of her unsuccessful New Year’s Eve show.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night, the comedian revealed she’ll put on another show for fans who were left disappointed by her last performance.

“I’m going back this summer and I’m going to be doing a big show,” she told the late-night host.

To sweeten the deal, Haddish is offering the audience from her NYE performance free entry if they have their original tickets.

“Anyone who has a ticket from New Year’s Eve, from that night, they can get in for free if they present the ticket,” she explained. “If they don’t have the ticket it will be, like, $20.”

The Girls Trip star also elaborated on the events that led up to fans walking out of the performance. Not only did Haddish forget some of her jokes during the show, but she wasn’t connecting with the audience.

The comedian blamed the flop on drinking too much the night before, explaining: “I danced all night. I drank more than I ever have in my entire life. My kidneys fell out. I’m pretty sure my Uber rating dropped a little low because I pooped on myself a little bit… It was bad.”

Haddish is hopeful the new Miami show will make up for the performance, but she’s enforcing a strict no-cellphones policy in case things go south. The performer decided to make the change after videos of her botched stand-up routine went viral.

The comic’s announcement came a week after it was revealed that she will executive produce a new stand-up comedy series for Netflix.  The show — Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready — will feature six up-and-coming stand-up comedians doing half-hour specials.

Dates for Haddish’s new Miami show and her Netflix series have not yet been announced.
