D.L. Hughley Biography

Darryl Lynn "D. L." Hughley (born March 6, 1963 in Los Angeles, California) is an American actor, stand-up comedian, and star of the television sitcom The Hughleys, which ran from 1998 to 2002 on ABC and then on UPN.

D.L. Hughley (pronounced "HUE-glee") grew up in South Central Los Angeles and had a difficult upbringing, getting kicked out of high school and becoming a member of the Bloods gang.[citation needed] After his cousin was shot, Hughley turned his life around, got a GED and a job and, after prompting by his wife, LaDonna, tried his hand at stand-up comedy. His comedy was a huge success and in 1992 he was picked to be the first host of BET's ComicView. He also appeared in the 3rd season of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air as an old friend of Will Smith trying out for an audition as a comedian.
