PASADENA, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 13: D.L. Hughely of 'The D.L. Hughley Talk Show' speaks during the TV One/CleoTV segment of the 2019 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena on February 13, 2019 in Pasadena, California.

D.L. Hughley recently revealed that he gave COVID-19 to his entire team, as TMZ reports. The comedian was apparently asymptomatic.

Last month, Hughley collapsed while on stage at a Nashville comedy club. Hughley claimed that he was asymptomatic before and after his diagnosis with coronavirus.

Hughley had previously been in Dallas, Texas where COVID-19 precautions were a bit later. The comedian then returned to do his radio show on Tuesday, June 16.

A few days later he shockingly collapsed on stage at Zanies Comedy Club. Hughley told TMZ that everyone he came in contact with tested positive for COVID-19, with the exception of his daughter who was wearing a mask.
