Storyline

From his inner-city roots in L.A., D.L. Hughley has become one of the smartest, most popular stand-up comics working today. This HBO special--his fourth--will show audiences just how far he's come, and how funny he is--with no apologies necessary! Taking the stage in Washington, D.C., Hughley focuses on such topics as the dangers of living in the nation's capital, the qualifications of the 2008 presidential candidates, the current administration, the immigration debate, Cuban refugees, airplane restrictions, the 'n' word, Don Imus and freedom of speech, whites and blacks on cruise ships, Paris Hilton, and much more--including D.L.'s now-famous interaction with hapless audience members in the first row.

Crude and vulgar are not enough to make something funny.
7 September 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I rarely review filmed stand-up routines and Hughley's is one I had no interest in seeing. However, our cable provider had given up free HBO for the weekend and a movie was coming on after D. L. HUGHLEY: UNAPOLOGETIC so I just let the TV run for a few minutes while I did some work on the computer. However, I could hear Hughley in the background and was amazed at how unfunny and crude the man was. So, I took a break and watched as this filthy and seemingly untalented man talked about erections, urinating, etc.--all the while he used amazingly foul language even for stand-up. Heck, even many rappers would probably flinch at his nasty mouth! It was like he'd made the conscious decision to forgo a real attempt at humor and just talk like a low-life. If you want that, I guess you could either watch this special or go hang out in prison for a few hours. I worked with folks in prison...these guys sounded about the same but didn't get big bucks for talking like that.

No matter how much I watched, it just didn't get funny--just crude and nasty. If that is ALL you want in your humor and you don't need originality or anything resembling humor, then by all means watch it. Now I am NOT saying that humor can't be crude or push the envelope, but pushing the boundaries of good taste and not being the least bit funny is just a giant waste of time for intelligent people. Don't watch it--your brain will thank you.
