D.L. was a troublesome teenager, a gang member and school rebel who was expelled from high school, before going straight and obtaining his GED, then getting a job with The Los Angeles Times. He started his career in entertainment in the stand-up comedy program in 1992 called ComicView, then later became a producer and acted in the TV show entitled “The Hughleys”.

1Often uses his childhood experiences for his comedy routines
1[on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006)] I think that like most things that are highly touted - the number-one draft pick - we crumpled under the weight of expectations. I think that's a fairly common phenomenon. I think we could have not taken ourselves so seriously. We pulled back the curtain too much. It's like when you go to a restaurant: It can be the best restaurant in the world, but I just want to eat the meal. I don't want to know how they make the steak. I think we spent so much time explaining and making what we did "important." We weren't inclusive enough. We had conversations with ourselves to hear ourselves.
1Friends with Bernie Mac.
