DL Hughley Give Perspective To The Louis CK Controversy & The ‘Protective’ Role Of His Manager (Video)

I usually do when DL gives social commentary, but I really leaned in on this one. A comedian speaking on another comedian going through a unique situation. Can expect some real talk. This is DL Hughley’s take on Louis CK’s taking liberties with the ladies.

Actually, this seems more in defense of their shared manager. Watch.

DL Hughley Speaks On Generational Wealth, The Struggle For Civil Rights For Gay People Vs. Black People, And How Comedy Has Helped Humans Evolve (Video)

Black people are jealous of gay people… It’s not hate. It’s jealousy.

Interesting how taglines are chosen. This clip is actually a Part 10 of what we thought was a six-part conversation with DL Hughley. And it is entitled “Black People are Jealous of Gay People,” which is covered in here. BUT Hughley’s thoughts on how important and intrinsic comedy is to humanity are the bulk of what was discussed, and so incredibly insightful. Watch above.

D.L. Hughley opened up to VladTV about his thoughts on generational wealth, his favorite comedians, and how comedy has helped humans evolve.

When it comes to his favorite comedians, D.L. named off Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Redd Foxx, and Robin Harris, and he shared why Dick Gregory and Mark Twain illustrated the human condition in the best way. He also mentioned coming up with Jamie Foxx and being mad that someone could be as talented as the “Ray” actor.

After sharing his thoughts on how Ellen was integral in the way people saw the gay community, D.L. explains how comedy has led to the evolution of humans. You can hear more about what he had to say in the above clip.

DL Hughley Salutes Co-Host Michael Smith And Others At ESPN For Having Jemele Hill’s Back At ESPN (Video)

Wow! If this is true… wow! Talk about sticking together. Michael Smith, risking his career, apparently told ESPN something like ‘I refuse to do the show if you let Jamele Hill go!’ He backed his co-host – willing to sacrifice his livelihood – and so did a small army of others. Yes, before ESPN could even consider kicking Smith out, too, Elle Duncan and Michael Eaves stepped on some ‘if they go, so do WE’ stuff. Even Michael Wilbon took some air time to vocalize strong support for Hill.

I really hope DL has the scoop on what is a true, and truly beautiful, story of solidarity. That’s how you get your people’s back!

DL Hughley Speaks On ESPN’s Sage Steele Firing, White Privilege, & Fox News Anchor Bill O’Reilly (Video)

Deeeeem! It’s cold out here for Sage Steele now that the ESPN door got slammed, esp. in the Hughley-verse.

More than that, in this short clip, DL went IN on the FoxNews x Bill O’Reilly situation in the right way… Hell, I remember having genuine HEAT for FoxNews’ ‘Papa Bear’ when he attacked Ludacris on his show (attempted character assassination); when Pepsi dumped Luda as a spokesperson (by the way, eff Pepsi for that.. I’m a Pepper)!
