RIDGEFIELD, CT – Actor and comedian D.L. Hughley has never shied away from controversy, offering his tough, unapologetic opinions on race, money and politics.  Hughley is best known from his hit sitcom “The Hughleys,” which followed a black family adjusting to life in a white suburb, or his talk show on CNN or his many guest spots on talk shows like The View, Real Time with Bill Maher and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Or you might know him from the mega-hit documentary “The Original Kings of Comedy,” where he was featured along with Steve Harvey, Bernie Mac and Cedric the Entertainer.  Now this astute and politically savvy comedian will bring his stand-up comedy to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Thursday, September 29 at 8 p.m. as part of the Bart’s Tree Service Comedy Series.
