Storyline

From his inner-city roots in L.A., D.L. Hughley has become one of the smartest, most popular stand-up comics working today. This HBO special--his fourth--will show audiences just how far he's come, and how funny he is--with no apologies necessary! Taking the stage in Washington, D.C., Hughley focuses on such topics as the dangers of living in the nation's capital, the qualifications of the 2008 presidential candidates, the current administration, the immigration debate, Cuban refugees, airplane restrictions, the 'n' word, Don Imus and freedom of speech, whites and blacks on cruise ships, Paris Hilton, and much more--including D.L.'s now-famous interaction with hapless audience members in the first row.

A Talented Comic Garners big laughs in his 4th HBO Special...
15 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

D.L. Hughley delivers the laughs in his forth HBO specialty subtitled UNAPOLOGETIC, which was filmed in Washington DC. After the disastrous BOB SAGET: THAT AIN'T RIGHT, this comic confection was a breath of fresh air, offering an amusing look at topics that weren't terribly original, but Hughley's outlook and much more selective use of adult language works to much greater effect here than Saget. One of Hughley's favorite topics is male/female relationship and he gets off some on-target shots on this well-worn subject, and as always, shows his flare for spontaneity by goofing on members of the audience in the theater. The subject matter may not be strikingly original, but Hughley's twisted view and on-target delivery almost always works.
