DL Hughley

Born March 6, 1963

DL Hughley first dropped onto my radar when he was part of the Original Kings of Comedy. I had probably seen him before that but this was my first exposure to his style of comedy, his perspective, and his brilliant mind.

Noteworthy

  • Original Kings of Comedy – D.L. Hugley, Steve Harvey, Cedric the Entertainer, and Bernie Mac. These four comic geniuses killed it during this special.
  • Comedy Specials – Over the years Hughley has put out many of his own comedy specials for various networks. When you watch him on stage prepare to laugh and to have a lot of truth winged at you at the same time. Find all of his ‘stuff’ at his website.
  • Political Commentary – Hughley works with CNN and other networks. Like most comedians, this guys mind is sharp as a tack. He puts that mind toward social justice, civil rights causes, and injustice in general. Again, when he talks, get ready to listen.

One of the most beautiful things in the world I’ve ever seen or heard is people laughing, even when there seems to be so little reason for them to laugh.

Christian Bale
