The Ice House Comedy Club is thrilled to welcome acclaimed comic and actor D.L.HUGHLEY on July 19 and 20.
D.L. HUGHLEY has earned his reputation as a true “king of comedy.” 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 2000 hit comedy docu-film The Original Kings of Comedy.
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. In addition, D.L. has headlined several comedy specials including D.L. Hughley: Going Home and D.L. Hughley Live, his Comedy Central special, Shocked and Appalled, as well as Unapologetic, a one-hour special for HBO. 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.
His recent project, The Endangered List – a mockumentary in which Hughley proposes that the black male belongs on the endangered species list – premiered on Comedy Central in October and was described by Slate as a “healthy snack of food-for-thought” and a “strange balance of bitter and sweet.”
First and foremost a standup comedian, he stars in his 5th stand-up special Reset, which will premiere on Showtime on July 14th. In addition, D.L’s first humorous book title, I Want You to Shut the F*ck Up, is out in bookstores on August 7th.
