A seasoned actor and comedian, Hughley spent four successful years starring in his own sitcom The Hughleys. Most recently he wrapped the first season of his late-night talk show, Weekends at the DL on Comedy Central. His one-hour comedy special, Shocked and Appalled, also airs on the cable channel. A versatile talent, Hughley has also recently produced a comedy CD Notes from the GED Section.
On the big screen, Hughley will star in the drama Shackles, where he plays a high school teacher who is hired to teach at a school for inmates and discovers a talented but troubled young poet. Hughley also starred in The Brothers.
It was the mega-hit film Original Kings of Comedy that launched Hughley into stardom. The feature was based on the 1999 tour featuring Hughley, Bernie Mac, Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer. The national tour grossed a staggering $37 million, only to be outdone by the Spike Lee-produced docu-film of the tour, which garnered close to $40 million at the box office and was one of the highest selling DVDs in 2001.
Hughley also continues to reign on the comedy front. He will star in a special from UrbanWorks Entertainment, as part of the successful platinum series. His one-hour HBO Special D.L Hughley Going Home, earned him a nomination for an NAACP Image Award.
