D.L. Hughley is in Orlando!
The King of Comedy is in town because he’s performing at the Improv Comedy Club this weekend.
He has a packed weekend since he has two shows tonight, two tomorrow night, and one show on Sunday, so boy was I surprised when I literally walked in to work to see him in one of our studios.
When he finished what he was recording I asked if he’d take a couple minutes to talk with me, he agreed, and he said a mouthful.
We talked about his early days in comedy, and his controversial NFL boycott.
Hughley has been pretty vocal about his disdain over Colin Kaepernick not being picked up by a football team this season seemingly because of the fact that he kneels at games during the National Anthem in protest of the killing of black people by police.
When I asked about his stance, he said:
“A league that will tolerate a man whoopin’ on a woman, but not kneeling for something that’s right is an immoral league anyway.”
