In 2012, Random House books released his first humorous book title, I Want You to Shut the F*ck Up.  That same year, DL also created and starred in the satirical documentary special for Comedy Central DL Hughley: The Endangered List, which premiered to rave reviews.  The special was honored with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award at the 72nd Annual Peabody Awards. In 2016, DL released his second book Black Man, White House: An Oral History of the Obama Years, described as a satirical retrospective of Obama’s years in office.  The book went on to make the New York Times Bestseller List.  He is currently working on his third book.

  • April Macie
    October 06, 2018 at 8:00 PM April Macie
    Do you remember the girl in your high school who had a horrible rumor spread about her? It might have involved a football team, or a dog and some peanut butter or maybe processed meat. Well, that girl in Easton, Pennsylvania was April Macie. So, where did she turn for comfort? While some might turn to the Lord, April turned to promiscuity. Promiscuity and then comedy. With her irreverent brand of overtly sexual humor she attempts to break down troubling double-standards and lend her voice to women everywhere. April would like to add that she doesn't really know what irreverent means, but she's heard a lot of other comics use it and thought it sounded kinda' cool.
     
    April Macie travels the world collecting stories and experiences, which she then translates into humorous, relatable tales in front of audiences worldwide. April has been to over 23 countries, 12 of those performing stand-up comedy (not fellatio) for the troops, was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2006, has appeared on E! Entertainment, Fuel TV, HSN, Sirius and XM Radio, Bob & Tom, Access Hollywood, and was labeled an "emerging talent to watch" by the Hollywood Reporter at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in 2005. April is a regular guest on the Howard Stern show, where in 2008 she was voted the “Funniest and Hottest” comedian in America. She is currently in the documentary, “I Am Comic” which premiered at the 2010 Slamdance Film Festival and is currently airing on Showtime and will also be appearing on Showtime in the stand-up special "Vegas Is My Oyster" premiering August 5th. Currently, she spends most of her time traveling the United States as a headlining stand-up comedian.
     
    April has slapped a boyfriend on the toilet for renting out their home for porn shoots, stood on the North Korean border, entertained troops next to the detainee camp in Guantanamo Bay, imported a young Englishman for the summer, only to see him turned away at the border months later for overstaying his visa. She has had numerous crappy jobs-including: a nanny, Hooter’s waitress, clowns assistant, telemarketer – fired from all of them, occasionally smokes weed out of an apple and goes to Chucky Cheese with her friends, thinks double standards are ridiculous and hopes to change the world by empowering women, “One dick joke at a time.”

  • HUNKS The Show - All Male Revue
    October 25, 2018 at 8:00 PM HUNKS The Show - All Male Revue
    When it comes to hot male strippers, most ladies only get to see some sexy men on stage taking their clothes off. But with HUNKS the Show, it’s more than just stripping. HUNKS is a much more personal and intimate experience that incorporates lights, music, professionally choreographed dancing routines, and fun fantasy costumes and the nature of the show encourages audience interaction. And while the best all-male exotic dancers show does feature male strippers, you’ll get so much more out of the experience than a simple striptease.
