    • TRIVIA (2)

      • For the first time in 2009, D.L. performed a mock interview with the fictitious "Drew Steinberg" played by head writer Hugh Fink. The character he played was supposed to be convicted swindler Bernie Madoff's publicist.

      • D.L.'s coffee mug reads "I (heart) Stimulus"

    • QUOTES (6)

      • D.L. Hughley: You say sex is everywhere except in the bedroom. Now, why do you say that?
        Rabbi Schmuley Boteach: Look at the audience tonight. Does it look like anyone's getting some?

      • D.L. Hughley: Well, it has been 55 days, and the president is working his ass off. Seriously Mr. President, stop doing so much. You're making George Bush look bad.

      • D.L. Hughley: You know what's so funny? When I hear people arguing about "It's a right-to-life issue", it seems that we only care about lives until they get here, and then we don't care about them at all. And that's amazing to me. We will send you to war, we'll give you the death penalty, but we want you to be born. Those arguments kind of have always never made sense to me.

      • Ron Reagan: I have never been a Republican, so I don't care much if the Republicans objected to the way I feel about things. She (Nancy Reagan) may have had a little harder time with that. But it's interesting, when you look at this issue (stem cell research), it's a little like the abortion issue or gay marriage. There's only one side that's trying to tell everybody else what they can and can't do. And my feeling is, if you don't want to avail yourself of treatments or therapies that might be derived from embryonic stem cells, if you have diabetes or your child has diabetes, let's say, you're free to not do that.

      • D.L. Hughley: And, of course, earlier this week, Bernie Madoff. He said he was guilty. You got to give it to him for just manning up, because I know I'm not going to ever tell on myself. I don' care -- you can have DNA; you can have triple-A... Did you do it? Did you see me? Well, we got a mystery on our hands, officer.

      • D.L. Hughley: Everybody is experiencing something in the economic downturn. Sesame Street is actually laying off 20 percent of its workforce, Sesame Street. I always thought Sesame Street looked like a rough neighborhood; a dude living in a garbage can, stray animals, one dude who just ate nothing but cookies. What is that, like a methadone clinic?
