DL Hughley Live Interview with Nolimit Larry

Charlotte NC's WPEG radio host Nolimit Larry with The Morning Maddhouse interviews the funny man DL Hughley. DL Hugley talks about all his new projects.
DL Hughley also talks about his visit to the Queen City for his comedy show.


A veteran stand-up comic who inspires both admiration and ire with his brutally honest, unabashedly liberal humor, this Los Angeles native ran "DL Hugley"with gangs as a teen until his cousin's murder prompted him to clean up his act. While working as a telemarketer, he met his future wife, who encouraged him to embark on an entertainment career. Hughley's autobiographical routines made him a hit on the comedy circuit, which led to frequent appearances on Def Comedy Jam and a spot as the host of BET's Comic View. In 1998 he created and starred in the family-friendly sitcom The Hughleys, based on his own experience of moving from the inner city to the suburbs. During his tenure, his career got a big boost from the Spike Lee-directed concert film The Original Kings of Comedy. Though The Hughleys ended in 2002, Hughley kept busy with a variety of hosting gigs and frequent talk-show appearances, notably on Real Time with Bill Maher. In 2005, he hosted a late night talk show on Comedy Central called Weekends at the D.L. A year later, he landed a part as a late-night sketch-comedy star on Aaron Sorkin's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, but the series never gained an audience and was canceled. He quickly moved on to the HBO stand-up special D.L. Hughley: Unapologetic (2007), and did an Unapologetic stand-up tour. In 2008, CNN made him the host of a show, D.L. Hughley Breaks the News, which ended when he opted to be closer to his family. He stayed on CNN as a contributor, and began hosting a morning radio show on the New York station KISS-FM.
