ARSENIO HALL (Carl Cristall), became a household name with the success of his Emmy®-Award winning late night talk show "The Arsenio Hall Show" but the versatile actor, comedian, and producer first became involved in the arts at the Cleveland Playhouse, and continued to hone his craft throughout his Kent State University years.

In 1979, Hall moved to Chicago where he tried his hand at stand-up comedy and was discovered by jazz singer Nancy Wilson. In the following years, Hall toured extensively, opening for major headliners including Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and Stevie Wonder. Hall also made appearances on numerous television shows including "Solid Gold" and "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” as well as his first film appearance in AMAZON WOMEN ON THE MOON, directed by John Landis.

In 1987, Hall was asked to replace Joan Rivers on the Fox Network series "The Late Show." On the strength of his work as interim host, he was signed to a film and television deal with Paramount Pictures, which subsequently led to the opportunity to co-write and co-star in the hit comedy COMING TO AMERICA.

On January 3, 1989, "The Arsenio Hall Show" made its debut, and virtually overnight Hall changed the face of late night television by captivating young viewers across the country. During his successful five-year run as executive producer and host, Hall provided a forum for cutting-edge comedy, politics and the television debut of such pop superstars as Mariah Carey, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Boyz to Men and countless others. In 1994, Hall resigned from the late night gabfest to pursue other personal and professional interests.

In 1998, Hall joined the cast of the dramedy, "Martial Law," spending two years in the role of Terrell Parker, a streetwise L.A.P.D. detective. He followed this up with a two-season stint as host of the new "Star Search," and then, taking on his most challenging task to date, he returned to stand-up comedy, touring for the first time in over a decade. Hall will next star as host of the upcoming weekly series "Funniest Moments,” a one-hour show capturing life's most outrageous moments on tape, which will debut on MyNetworkTV in October, 2008.
