D.L. Hughley's success story is one that runs parallel to many African-American entertainers of the 20th century. Born in one of the roughest, impoverished, and crime-filled areas of the nation (south central California), Hughley led a life of juvenile delinquency and ultimately ended up a member of one of the most infamous gangs in the area. It was only after the loss of a family member that he began to turn his life around, which ultimately led him to the stage and standup comedy. After a successful stint on various club circuit tours and BET comedy specials, he teamed up with Cedric the Entertainer, Steve Harvey, and Bernie Mac for the legendary Kings of Comedy tour, which won critical acclaim and eventually was adapted into a Spike Lee film. Subsequently, ABC awarded him with his own show, The Hughleys, which lasted for several seasons. He has also starred in several movies, and Comedy Central released his first audio CD in 2004. ~ Rob TheakstonPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
