As an advocate of black comedians' talent, D.L. Hughley worked to support their careers, leading by example. After years of experience in the standup circuit, Hughley took on the role of host of BET's Comic View in 1992, in addition to various other television appearances on comedy programs and sitcoms. He was born on March 6, 1963, named Darryl Hughley, and raised in Southern California, where he would spend the majority of his performing life as well. On February 22, 1986, he wed his wife LaDonna, with whom he had three children.Once Hughley had gained some attention as a standup comedian, he appeared on an HBO special, which led to his status as host of Comic View. In 1995, he played Marlon on the TV series Double Rush, and starred in his self-monikered sitcom The Hughleys as himself in 1998. The following year, he performed the voice for the Gadgetmobile in the live-action film Inspector Gadget (starring Matthew Broderick), inspired by the 1980s cartoon series of the same name.He appeared in the Spike Lee documentary The Original Kings of Comedy, which also featured several other accomplished black comedians including Steve Harvey, Cedric the Entertainer, and Bernie Mac. In 2001, Hughley expanded his performance horizons with his role in the dramatic comedy The Brothers, a film by Gary Hardwick exploring the realms of friendship and marriage. After The Hughleys wrapped in 2002, he continued to remain a constant fixture in the comedy scene, appearing in additional films like 2004's Soul Plane. He also took on the recurring role of Simon Stiles on the critically acclaimed but short-lived Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip in 2006 and 2007 as well as the comedy series Glory Daze in 2011. Venturing back into film, Hughley signed on to appear in the action comedy Cat Run later that same year.
