Hughley Follows up Studio 60 with Stand Up Special

Whether headlining sold-out stand-up comedy concerts or starring in numerous TV series, D.L. Hughley always does things his own way, with no apologies. Now, the popular comic returns to HBO for his fourth solo stand-up special on the network when D.L. HUGHLEY: UNAPOLOGETIC debuts SATURDAY, SEPT. 22 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

Other HBO playdates: Sept. 28 (1:30 a.m.) and Oct. 1 (11:00 p.m.), 4 (10:15 p.m.), 9 (3:15 a.m.), 15 (11:30 p.m.) and 21 (midnight).

HBO2 playdates: Sept. 23 (midnight) and Oct. 10 (10:00 p.m.), 12 (midnight) and 24 (2:55 a.m.).

Taped before a live audience at the historic Lincoln Theater in Washington, D.C., D.L. HUGHLEY: UNAPOLOGETIC features his take on: the immigration debate; Cuban refugees; airplane restrictions; the "n" word; Don Imus and freedom of speech; the price of gasoline and cocaine; the NRA; and much more, as well as capturing his interactions with hapless audience members in the first row.

Making his HBO debut on "Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam," D.L. Hughley went on to star in three solo specials on the network, including a 1992 edition of "One-Night Stand," a 1994 "HBO Comedy Half-Hour" and 1999's "D.L. Hughley: Going Home." His other TV credits include the popular sitcom "The Hughleys," which ran four seasons, the special "Shocked and Appalled" and the talk show "Weekends at the D.L."

In the late 1990s, Hughley was part of the hit "Original Kings of Comedy Tour," which played to packed houses in more than 50 cities across the country and was later the subject of a feature film directed by Spike Lee. He recently starred in the drama series "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip."
