“D.L. Hughley brings his honest and sharp observations to Netflix in his debut Original stand-up special, ‘D.L. Hughley: Contrarian,’” reads a press release from the streaming giant. “Performing at the Merriam Theater in Philadelphia, Hughley keeps his audience in hysterics as he tells it like it is about the hypocrisy of racism in America, being a man during the #MeToo movement, why cell phones are ruining relationships, and parents who don’t follow warning signs.”
The first trailer for the special finds the Los Angeles comic riffing on the dangers of giving children ethnic names. Check it out below.
