D.L. Hughley Says Americans Are More Dangerous Than Guns & Isis

2 October 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_3vcwejx3"]] The most dangerous thing to Americans isn't guns or Isis ... it's your fellow Americans, according to D.L. Hughley. We got D.L. Monday morning following the Las Vegas massacre which killed at least 58 concertgoers and injured more than 500.  D.L. points out there were no laws stopping the gunman, Stephen Paddock, from pulling off the deadliest mass shooting of all time. As he puts it ... it's easier to get assault weapons in America than it is Sudafed. »

Dave Chappelle, Sheryl Underwood and More Bring the Laughs on ‘Def Comedy Jam 25’ Anniversary Special

26 September 2017 10:51 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

“All comedy roads today, lead to Def Comedy Jam.” 

Dave Chappelle, Steve Harvey, Martin Lawrence, D.L. Hughley and more of comedy’s heavy hitters reunited for a special night of laughs for Def Comedy Jam 25, a new special which began streaming on Netflix on Tuesday.

The comedy celebration was filmed at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, on Sept. 9, and pays tribute to the comedians behind a show “responsible for more stolen cable than any other television,” as Chappelle joked. 

Chappelle, Harvey, Sheryl Underwood and Cedric the Entertainer kick off the 80-minute special playing as a comedy collision of self-deprecation and social topics like racism and police brutality, a sprinkle of politics (President Donald Trump comes up more than once) and tons of laughs, with appearances from Tracy Morgan, Katt Williams, Craig Robinson, Bill Bellamy, Mike Epps, Tiffany Haddish and many more.

Def Comedy Jam at 25: Dave Chappelle, Sheryl Underwood, D.L. Hughley Get Political

25 September 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Some of the most iconic moments from HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam” were about relationships, sex, and culture. But the comics who appeared on Russell Simmons and Bob Sumner’s stand-up show didn’t shy away from the current events of the time, either – everything from O.J. Simpson’s freeway chase to the beating of Rodney King and subsequent L.A. riots were fair game. So it’s no surprise that reuniting some of the best from the show’s original run for Netflix’s 25th anniversary special would come with ample commentary on the politics of today.

The “Def Comedy Jam 25” special, which was taped on Sept. 10 in Los Angeles, mixed live performances from Def Jam legends like Cedric the Entertainer, Adele Givens, Eddie Griffin, Tracy Morgan and Mike Epps with pre-taped messages from stars like Chris Rock and Kevin Hart as well as footage from classic sets.

25 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

[[tmz:video id="0_yva45ik7"]] D.L. Hughley is incredulous that Roger Stone is predicting civil war if Trump gets impeached ... because the Trumpians will lose just as hard as the South. We got D.L. in NYC Thursday and he said taking down Confederate symbols is a no-brainer ... you know, the whole "to the victors go the spoils" thing.
