Event Description
DL HUGHLEY A King of Comedy Special Event

One of the most popular and highly recognized standup comedians on the road

today has also made quite an impression in the television, film and radio

arenas. DL can currently be heard nationwide as host of his own afternoon radio

show “The DL Hughley Show” which is nationally syndicated in over 60 cities

across the country including the #1 radio market – New York. The radio show

dives head first into hot topics of the day and dishes on the latest news,

entertainment, pop culture and what's trending in social media.

This July 2020, Harper Collins will release DL’s fourth book Surrender, White

People. His two previous satirical titles Black Man, White House: An Oral History

of the Obama Years and How Not to Get Shot…And Other Advice From White

People, became New York Times bestsellers. It was recently announced that

Comedy Central will shoot a docu-comedy series of How Not to Get Shot.

DL continues to dominate the stand up stage, producing specials for Netflix,

Showtime and HBO. His 11th stand up special “DL Hughley: Contrarian” is

currently available on Netflix.

DL also created and starred in the satirical documentary special for Comedy

Central DL Hughley: The Endangered List, which premiered to rave reviews. The

special was honored with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award at the

72nd Annual Peabody Awards.

Known for being astute and politically savvy in true comedian-style, DL served as

host of his own late night talk shows on CNN and Comedy Central, and was a

series regular on the Aaron Sorkin NBC drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. DL

hosted the TBS’s game show Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host. He also tapped

into his playful side and participated in the 16th season of the hit ABC show

Dancing with the Stars.

As the star and producer of his namesake television show that ran on ABC and

UPN The Hughleys, DL is also well known as one of the standout comedians on

the ground-breaking tour and docu-film The Original Kings of Comedy. A veteran

of numerous talk show appearances, he is a regular on the late night talk show

circuit, including always-memorable appearances on Real Time with Bill Maher,

CNN and The Tonight Show. He is frequently requested as a guest host for such

shows as Good Morning America, The View and Live with Kelly.

DL’s first love always has been, and always will be, standup comedy. “From the

minute I first walked onstage and picked up a microphone,” he says, “I knew that

it was what I was meant to do.”
