Listen as Madison talks with the hilarious Arsenio Hall ahead of his shows this weekend in Raleigh.
Arsenio Hall is headed to Raleigh Improv this weekend, Feb.1st – 2nd, and we couldn’t be more excited!
Arsenio may have taken some time away from stand-up comedy, but he’s back and better than ever! Over the years he’s been tackling numerous projects including doing a reboot of his hit show The Arsenio Hall Show, and winning the Celebrity Apprentice in 2012, raising over $500,000 for the Magic Johnson Foundation!
Arsenio explains to Madison what brought him back to stand-up comedy after all this time, saying “For 19 years I pulled away and raised my son, and my son is a student at Indiana University now. So, when he graduated and went to college, I was like ‘Okay, what have I missed in my life? What do I really want right now in my life?’ Because you only live once, this ain’t no dress rehearsal. You know what, when everything blew up for me, what I was really enjoying, was stand-up. Puts me right in front of people, the people who make you who you are, and it’s cathartic…”
He also talks about some interesting moments in his life including his relationship with Prince, and even a ‘Coming to America’ reboot!
