D.L. is such a cut-up! We warned our "line" buddies not to go for the front row if they didn't want to be part of the routine. They didn't listen. We really enjoyed their pain! And for those who haven't been around since D.L. started, picking on the audience is a signature of his routine, not a way to fill time. It's what us old timers look forward to.
You always get your moneys worth when you see him. And the location is great. We arrived around 9pm and parked at the lot across the street. Parking was $20 and we got a great spot. Then we went to 319 Columbus street where you can get a glass of draught beer for $1.50. We chilled for about 30 minutes watching the game on the big screen TV before heading next door to get in line.
Picking up my Gold Star tickets was an easy breezy experience. Walked up, handed over my printed out receipt and my ID and was handed my tickets. Stood in line, showed ID again so that the check-in process is expedited. Once inside we were promptly seated in the first row after the stage seating! Excellente!

D.L. was fantastic...for about 20 minutes. Once he had run through his material, he spent the rest of his time on stage asking individual audience members where they worked and whether they were married and trying to create material from their...continued

The 2 opening comics were way more fun than D.L. Hughley. D.L must of been on some speed, coke, or something. He was talking waaay too fast, which is not usual delivery style for standup, and he used a lot of old jokes from his old routines. He...continued
One of the most popular and highly recognized standup comedians on the road today has also made quite an impression in the television and radio arena. In 1999, D.L., along with comedians Bernie Mac, Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer, embarked on this national tour, which sold out most of the major concert arenas in over 50 cities across the country. The tour went on to gross a staggering $37 million dollars nationwide. Spike Lee, eager to expose the tour to a larger audience, made a docu-film of the tour, and it was released nationwide to rave reviews.
Hughley spent four successful years starring in his own sitcom “The Hughleys” and showed no signs of slowing down. It was the mega-hit,”The Original Kings of Comedy” that launched D.L into superstardom. The film, based on the 1999 tour featuring D.L., Bernie, Steve and Cedric, garnered close to $40 million dollars at the box office and became one of the highest selling DVDs in 2001.
In addition to some exciting television developments, D.L. took a serious turn with his work, starring in the drama “Shackles”. Hughley wowed audiences in 2001 in “The Brothers”, co-starred in “Cloud Nine” opposite Burt Reynolds and also starred in the film “Doubting Thomas”. In 2005-2006, D.L., hosted his own late night talk show for Comedy Central “Weekends at the DL”; his first foray into late night hosting. D.L.’s creative arsenal is non-stop. He starred as “Simon Stiles” on the Aaron Sorkin drama series for NBC “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” and hosted the popular BET hidden camera reality series, “S.O.B. – Socially Offensive Behavior”. In 2006, D.L. also starred in his own HBO comedy special entitled,”Unapologetic”. The special, which aired to excellent reviews, is now available on DVD. Following the success of the special, D.L. went on to host the second season of HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam” and served as host of the BET Awards in 2008.
Most recently, D.L. served as host of his own late night talk show on CNN “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News”. Proving he could, indeed, break news, D.L. was able to uncover startling, newsmaking comments from such guests as former White House Press Secretaries Scott McClellan and Ari Fleischer, as well as a recent controversy-stirring comment from RNC Michael Steele.
D.L. can currently be heard on the New York airwaves, as the host of the morning show on WYKS-FM. In just a few months on air, D.L. has managed to increase the listenership for the station. D.L. has undoubtedly proved himself as one of the hardest working men in showbiz. In addition to his growing TV and film resume, D.L. continues his reign on the standup comedy front; filling out concert halls and headlining comedy clubs across the country.
