Hughley is a member of The Original Kings of Comedy. Hughley was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of Audrey and Charles Hughley, who was a Delta Air Lines maintenance worker. He is the second of four children. He grew up in L.A.'s South Central where he was a member of the Bloods gang after getting kicked out of high school. However, he turned his life around after a cousin was shot. He quit the gang and got a job as a telemarketer for the Los Angeles Times, where he moved into management and met his wife-to-be.
She was the one who convinced him to try his humor on stage. After years of club dates, he was selected by BET as the first host of "Comic View" and subsequently got additional recognition with two very adult oriented HBO specials. Read more on Last.fm.
