Personal Quote:

My name is Arsenio. That's a very unique name for a black man. In Greek, it means Leroy. See more »

Trivia:

In 1987, he was the most popular of several rotating guests who replaced Joan Rivers as host of the fledgling Fox network's new late night talk show, The Late Show (1986) after Rivers was fired. He later got his own show syndicated by Paramount, The Arsenio Hall Show (1989). Hall and Rivers are good friends, and Hall had Rivers as a guest on his new show at Paramount. See more »
