New Netflix Special “Contrarian”
A person who opposes or rejects popular opinion, especially in everyday life, is known as a Contrarian, that describes King of Comedy D.L. Hughley perfectly. His latest stand-up comedy special (now on Netflix) is aptly titled “Contrarian” and its exactly what you expect from the strong black father, husband and comic. In this latest special D.L. gives you great insight, perspective and flashback funny. We say flashback because today’s world of social-medians and microwave-medians, few entertainers offer handcrafted, personalized funny, DL Hughley does that and more in his latest special.
Champion of Black Manhood
D.L. Hughley has returned to his roots as a stand-up comedian with a new special on Netflix and we think you should definitely check it out. The special was recorded at the Merriam Theater in Philadelphia and directed by Jay Chapman. In ‘Contrarian,’ 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.
Back to Politics
Hughley’s social commentary takes on greater satirical significance when he turns his attention squarely back on race. D.L. has always had things both humorous and insightful to say about race relations, from his ABC sitcom “The Hughleys” through The Original Kings of Comedy concert film, a weekly CNN series, and his syndicated radio program. That Peabody Award was no fluke.
So listen up when Hughley presents his observations on just why black people might be responsible numerically for more crimes against black people, why parents have to teach their children not to respect the police but to fear them, the power of the word “n—er,” and why football players are perhaps best-suited to tackle protests against police brutality and injustice.
So check it out, call your momma’ and get that netflix password, you’ll be glad you did!
