Original King of Comedy D.L. Hughley to Perform at The Stage
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – Jan. 21, 2019

Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel, New Mexico's Best Bet, welcomes Original King of Comedy D.L. Hughley to The Stage. He will perform two shows on Friday, Jan. 25, and Saturday Jan. 26, beginning at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

One of the most widely recognized comedians in the industry, Hughley's long-standing career spans decades of work that in addition to stand-up include appearances in film, TV and radio. Hughley began his career in stand-up but it wasn't until he earned the highly coveted spot as the host of the "Original Kings of Comedy" tour that he became a break-out star and household name. He then gained even more success when he went on to become the star and producer of the hit comedy series, "The Hughleys" which ran for four seasons on both ABC and UPN.

Known for incorporating politically savvy commentary into his comedy, Hughley hosted his own late-night talk show "D.L. Hughley Breaks the News" that aired on CNN from 2008 to 2009 and has made frequent appearances on politically driven talk shows including HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" and ABC's "The View." Hughley is the host of the nationally syndicated radio show "The D.L. Hughley Show," and his third book, "How Not to Get Shot" was released last June. He recently toured with fellow stand-up comedians Cedric the Entertainer, George Lopez and Eddie Griffin for the "Get Down Comedy Tour," and his current comedy special, "Contrarian," is available on Netflix.

Tickets to D.L. Hughley's performances at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel range between $25 and $45 and can be purchased online at Attendees must be 21 years old or older. For more information, please call (505) 771-5680.
