An Emmy Award-winner, the original The Arsenio Hall Show broke ground with iconic moments like Bill Clinton playing his saxophone, Michael Jackson's guest appearance with Eddie Murphy and Mariah Carey's television debut. It ran from 1989 to 1994, introducing "woof, woof" and the "Dog Pound" into the pop culture conscious. A new generation discovered Arsenio when he appeared and won the fifth edition of NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" in 2012.
Arsenio began his career in stand-up comedy, and soon caught the eye of television executives who tapped him for guest appearances on shows such as "Solid Gold" and "The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson," which led to his hosting Fox's "The Late Show" in 1997. In addition to his stand-up and hosting work, Arsenio established a career as an actor in movies such as "Coming to America" and TV shows such as the CBS dramedy "Martial Law."
