D.L. Hughley collapsed onstage while performing at a Nashville comedy club over the weekend, and Hughley was rushed to a nearby hospital. A member of the audience captured the moment on video.
A rep for Hughley offered an update, saying, “D.L. collapsed on stage last night during his second show in Nashville. He was suffering from exhaustion after all the week’s work and travel, and was kept overnight at the hospital for tests under doctor’s orders,” a rep for Hughley said in a statement. “He is awake and feeling better, and wishes to thank everyone for the very kind prayers and thoughts.”
Later over the weekend, Hughley posted a video thanking everyone for their well-wishes, saying that he was treated for exhaustion and extreme dehydration, and also tested positive for COVID-19. Hughley said he was asymptomatic, “which means I didn’t have any of the classic symptoms.” Hughley will quarantine for 14 days at his hotel.
