In January 1990 Doug stepped on stage at a comedy club in Huntsville, Alabama for the first time and found his calling.
Two weeks after moving to Los Angeles, Doug landed his first role in a major film “The Nutty Professor” starring Eddie Murphy. From there, his off beat style of stand-up comedy that surrounds relationships with women and his life has made him a favorite on BET’s “Club Comic View” where he completed a one hour stand-up comedy special. Doug has also appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend VIII,” “Vibe,” “The Keenen Ivory Wayans show,” NBC’s “Friday Night, Late Night,” and fulfilled a life long dream by performing on “It’s Showtime at the Apollo.”
Currently, Doug is the host of a new hit stand up comedy show on Starz called “ Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand up.”
He can be seen in a stand up comedy special with Mo’nigue (from “The Parkers”) called “The Big Black Comedy Show” which is out on DVD now.
