DL also serves as a weekly contributor to the nationally syndicated radio show, “The Tom Joyner Morning Show.” He is currently working on his first humorous book title.
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.

A standup comedian to the core, D.L. starred in his own one- hour special for HBO entitled “Unapologetic.” The special, D.L.’s fourth for the network, is currently available on DVD. In 2007, D.L. starred on the NBC series “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” and also HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” as well as the BET series “S.O.B: Socially Offensive Behavior.”
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,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Conan.” He is frequently requested, and has even guest hosted on such shows as, “The View” and “Live with Regis & Kelly.”
In addition, D.L. has headlined several comedy specials including “D.L. Hughley: Going Home,” “D.L. Hughley Live,” “Shocked & Appalled” and the recent “Unapologetic.”
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.”
