D.L. Hughley performed on Friday (June 19) but suddenly fainted in the middle of his routine.
A frightening moment played out for fans who attended a D.L. Hughley performance on Friday (June 19) evening. The famed comedian and popular talk show host was reportedly in Nashville, Tennessee on Juneteenth at a comedy club named Zanies. A fan at the show shared a video that later went viral where D.L. Hughley can be seen sitting on a stool on stage. He’s heard saying something unintelligible as his words began to slur, causing the audience to become slightly confused.

In the video that was shared, a person can be heard saying “What?” as they question what Hughley was talking about. The comedian suddenly stops speaking for a brief moment and a member of his team to the side of the stage notices something isn’t quite right. They walk onto the stage and hold onto D.L. Hughley as he faints, placing him on the ground.
The crowd gasps and people took to social media with words of encouragement as they hoped that the actor was recovering. DJ Vlad tweeted that he spoke with Hughley and that he was doing just fine. Hopefully, this wasn’t related to anything serious. Watch the video below.
