Actor and comedian Darryl Lynn ("D.L.") Hughley is one of the most recognizable faces in comedy today. Along with touring he continues to perform as both an actor and host on television and in movies.
Hughley is probably best known for his role as one of the four comedians featured in the Spike Lee film "The Original Kings of Comedy." The film was based on a 1999 comedy tour that featured Hughley along with well-known comedians Bernie Mac, Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer. The film earned close to $40 million at the box office and was one of the highest selling DVDs in 2001. It also launched Hughley to superstardom.
Along with his work as a comedian, Hughley is recognizable for his roles on television and in films. He starred in his own TV show, "The Hughleys," which ran from 1998 to 2002. Following that he hosted his own late-night talk show on Comedy Central called "Weekends at the D.L." from 2005 to 2006. Hughley appeared as a main character in the drama series "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," which debuted in 2006. His 60-minute comedy special "Unapologetic" premiered on HBO in 2007.
Hughley took on a role in the film "Shackles," a drama where he plays a high school teacher hired to teach inmates. The film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2005. Some of his other film credits include "The Brothers" and "Cloud Nine."
In 2008, Hughley was selected to host and write a comedy news show for CNN called "D.L. Hughley Breaks the News." The show covered global events, entertainment, sports and pop culture. Hughley resigned from working on the show in 2009 to be closer to his family in Los Angeles.
In 2012, Hughley appeared in a stand-up special performance called "Reset," which was recorded and aired on Showtime. His first book, "I Want You to Shut the F#ck Up," also hit bookstores that summer.
In 2013, he landed in ninth place in the TV competition "Dancing with the Stars."
Most recently, Hughley can be heard on the airwaves. He currently serves as a weekly contributor to the nationally syndicated radio show "The Tom Joyner Morning Show."
