Donnell Rawlings

Donnell is an overnight success a decade in the making. He made a splash in the DC comedy clubs going from a heckler in the audience to HBO's Def Comedy Jam in a period of six months. You’ve seen him as 'Ashy Larry' on Comedy Central’s award winning and critically celebrated Chappelle’s Show, where he joined Dave Chappelle as both as a writer and performer.

He was a co-host on both Power 105’s (NY’s #1 Hip Hop and R&B radio station) morning show “Egypt and Ashy in the Morning” and “The Big Tigger Morning Show” on WPGC in Washington DC, and he enjoyed weekly guest appearances on New York’s Hot 97 Morning Show. He was a regular on E!’s “Chelsea Lately", starred in Comedy Central's “Reality Bites Back,” and was the resident “Funny Guy” on the Ricki Lake Show.

As an actor Donnell has also appeared in the Law & Order series, “Special Victims Unit” (SVU) and “Criminal Intent” (CI) as well as NBC’s “Third Watch,” the Emmy-Award winning HBO Mini-Series “The Corner” and as Day-Day Price on HBO’s Emmy-Award winning series “The Wire.” On the big screen he could be seen in the blockbuster “Spider-Man II.”

His rise to stardom may not have been “overnight”, but the journey itself has kept him edgy and relevant. Comedy's heavy hitters have noticed his talent with Neal Brennan, co- executive producer and co-head writer of Chappelle’s Show exclaiming “whenever we put Donnell in the game he’s going to hit a home run.” Jamie Foxx says, “That guy is a beast!” Wayne Brady commented that Donnell provides “amazing work on the show” and Dave Chappelle feels that “Donnell brings so much to the table...this very funny guy makes it look natural and easy.”
