D.L.'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.”
First and foremost a standup comedian, he stars in his 5th stand-up comedy special “Reset” which is currently airing on Showtime. In addition, D.L's first humorous book title, I Want You to Shut the F*ck Up, is out in bookstores. DL also created and starred in the satirical documentary special for Comedy Central “D.L. Hughley: The Endangered List”, which premiered to rave reviews this past October. The special was honored with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award in the 72nd Annual Peabody Awards competition, and it was also honored by the Television Academy Honors earlier this year.
Known for being astute and politically savvy in true comedian style, D.L. served as host of his own late night talk show on CNN “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News.” Most recently, DL tapped into his playful side and participated in the 16th season of the hit ABC show “Dancing with the Stars,” alongside partner Cheryl Burke.
As the star and producer of his namesake television show that ran on ABC and UPN “The Hughleys,” D.L. is also well known as one of the standout comedians on the hit comedy docu-film The Original Kings of Comedy. A veteran of numerous talk show appearances D.L. switched the tables in 2005, hosting his own talk show on Comedy Central “Weekends at the DL.” He is a regular on the late night talk show circuit, including always-memorable appearances on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” He is frequently requested as guest host on such shows as, “Good Morning America”, “The View” and “Live with Kelly.”
