Donnell Rawlings Brings FROM ASHY TO CLASSY to the RRazz Room, 1/25-27
Live at The RRazz, San Francisco's premier nightclub, will present DONNELL RAWLINGS with his hit comedy show "From Ashy to Classy... Live & Uncut" from January 25 to January 27. With his firm grasp of the outrageous, Donnell (HBO's "The Wire") was born to make people laugh. He grabbed America's funny bone on "Chappelle's Show" with characters like Ashy Larry and the distinctively jheri-curled Beautiful. Now Donnell goes even further, taking on the entire American culture with impersonations of everybody from Michael Jackson (RIP) to Barack Obama, and bringing his audience to tears with his razor-sharp insights and fearless observations.
DONNELL RAWLINGS is an overnight success a decade in the making. His unique brand of observational humor earned Donnell co-hosting duties on Power 105's (NY's #1 Hip Hop and R+B radio station) morning show "Egypt and Ashy in the Morning". He is now co-hosting "The Big Tigger Morning Show" on WPGC in Washington D.C. currently, Donnell can be seen regularly on E!'s hit show "Chelsea Lately," MTV's new show "Hatin.'". His new 1 Hour Stand-Up "Ashy to Classy" premiered on Comedy Central and is now available in stores on DVD.
He also enjoyed reprising his character of Day-Day Price on HBO's Emmy-Award winning series "The Wire" during a 3 episode arc, during the show's final season (2007-2008). In 2007, Donnell co-created and starred in Heavy.com's hit web series "From Ashy to Classy," in which Donnell portrays the loveable yet clueless culture critic, Ashford Lawrence. The series was picked up for a second round of episodes and remains one of Heavy.com's most popular shows. Additionally, Donnell has starred in "Reality Bites Back" for Comedy Central and tours heavily with his stand up dates.
Donnell has performed his intelligently bold stand-up throughout the U.S., Europe, and the Caribbean. He has appeared on award winning Law & Order series: "Special Victims Unit" (SVU) and "Criminal Intent" (CI). Donnell can also be seen on NBC's "Third Watch" and the Emmy Award winning HBO Special: "The Corner". Coming up next Donnell also has a supporting role in Queen Latifah's new movie Percentage. From his weekly guest appearance on New York's Hot 97 Morning Show, to his role in the blockbuster Spider-Man II and his position as resident "Funny Guy" on the Ricki Lake Show, Donnell's rise to stardom may not have been "overnight", but the journey has given him the life experience to keep his humor edgy and relevant. Donnell's peers have noticed his talent and potential. 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."
