Adele Givens @ The Comedy Zone

Adele Givens has done it all! Adele was crowned winner of the Crown Royal Comedy competition in the city of Chicago on February 3rd 1990. Since that day Adele has realized that she was destined to become comedic royalty. Since then Adele has the rare ability to make you laugh, think, cry, and cringe all at the same time!! Her famous catch line “I am SUCH a #$%@#% Lady” has gone viral. Her work is popular and she can be heard on songs by Big Sean, Lil Kim, The Brat! Her bold and on point insights continue to delight and amaze her fans and peers alike. Popularity was swift with Adele winning many other competitions and securing the respect of comedy lovers everywhere. Almost immediately fans proclaimed Adele Givens the Queen of Comedy. The title is well deserved with such credits as Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam, The All Stars of Def Comedy Jam. Showtime at the Apollo. The Oprah Winfrey show. HBO Comedy half-hour, Comedy Central Presents, Queen Adele has certainly reigned supreme.

It wasn’t long before Queen Adele made her acting debut, guest-starring in such sitcoms as Martin, Moesha, The Parkers, The Steve Harvey show, a recurring role on The Tracey Ullman show and becoming a series regular on the hit sitcom The Hughley’s to name a few. Loving her newfound tree, Queen Adele branched out to do her very own morning radio show (The Adele Givens morning show on WGCI 107.5 FM Chicago), but not before filming her first movie role as Tricks in the film, The Player’s Club. Before long, HBO recognized her majesty by offering her a chance to do her own HBO Half-hour comedy special and television pilot The Adele Givens show. Adele also served as co-host of the Source Magazine Awards pre-show. Queen Adele Givens wowed audiences everywhere on the very successful Queens of Comedy tour (13 consecutive sold out dates and the album was nominated for a Grammy Award), and made us laugh out loud as the hip hop loving, bad hair day having, DJ (I’Holla) Helen in the movie Beauty Shop.
Now the Queen of comedy, Grammy nominated artist, Soul Train Comedy Award nominee, and experienced television and film actress, had added the titles writer. Producer and Director to her resume. She is currently filming a movie she wrote and directed (The real extreme and confusing blaxploitation of ….SCANKHOSE.) All this and beautiful too! It’s safe to say that the little girl from Chicago’s west side has done the city proud!

D.L. Hughley @ The Comedy Zone

One of the most popular and highly recognized standup comedians on the road today, D.L. has also made quite an impression in the television and radio arena. D.L. can currently be heard on the New York airwaves, as host of the morning show on WYKS- FM. In just a few months on air, DL has managed to increase the listenership for the station. Most recently, D.L. served as host of his own late night talk show on CNN “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News.”

Proving he could, indeed break news, D.L. was able to uncover startling, news-making comments from such guests as former White House press secretaries Scott McClellan and Ari Fleischer, as well as a recent controversy-stirring comment from RNC chair Michael Steele.

D.L.’s creative arsenal is non-stop. He starred as “Simon Stiles” on the Aaron Sorkin drama series for NBC “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” and was hosted the popular BET hidden camera reality series, “S.O.B. Socially Offensive Behavior”. In 2006, D.L. also starred in his own HBO comedy special entitled “Unapologetic”. The special, which aired on HBO to excellent reviews, and is now available on DVD. Following the success of the special, D.L. went on to host the second season of HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam” and served as host of the BET Awards in 2008.

Hughley spent four successful years starring in his own sitcom “The Hughleys,” and showed no signs of slowing down. It was the mega-hit ORIGINAL KINGS OF COMEDY that launched D.L. into superstardom. The film, based on the 1999 tour featuring D.L., Bernie Mac, Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer, garnered lose to $40 million at the box office and became one of the highest selling DVDs in 2001.

In 1999 D.L., along with comedians Bernie, Steve and Cedric embarked on this national tour, which sold out most of the major concert arenas in over 50 cities across the country and went on to gross a staggering $37 million dollars nationwide. Spike Lee, eager to expose the tour to a larger audience, made a docu-film of the tour, and it was released nationwide to rave reviews.

In 2005-2006, D.L. hosted his own late night talk show for Comedy Central “Weekends at the DL”, his first foray into late night hosting.
In addition to some exciting television developments, D.L. took a serious turn with his work, starring in the drama Shackles. Hughley wowed audiences in 2001 in The Brothers, co-starred in Cloud Nine opposite Burt Reynolds, and also starred in the film Doubting Thomas. D.L. has undoubtedly proved himself as one of the hardest working men in showbiz. In addition to his growing tv and film resume, D.L. continues his reign on the standup comedy front, filling out concert halls and headlining comedy clubs across the country.
