Donnell Rawlings has quietly built himself a thick resume in the comedy world. And if at one point in time you've said "I'm Rich B****" or heard a friend say it, you can thank Donnell because he coined the famous phrase.
Donnell has dabbled in TV, film, and radio. From his hilarious character "Ashy Larry" on the widely popular Chapelle's Show, his guest spots on "Chelsea Lately", and his contributions to MTV's "Man Code", just to name a few; this former Air Force member has definitely turned his "ash" into gold.
Using his creative writing and knack for edgy humor, he has been able to create a name for himself nationwide.
Like many other comedians, Rawlings began his comedy career on HBO's "Def Comedy Jam" after a local Washington DC comedian challenged him to bring his comedic act to the stage after a long night of dealing with heckling from Rawlings.
When Rawlings, returned from serving in the Air force, he would heckle comedians from the crowd. Luckily, this time around one of them put Donnell on the forefront because he hasn't looked back since.
This is one comedian you do not want to miss. After a decade of building his brand and slowly making himself one of today's comedy "it" men you can catch him on TV of course, but also on his worldwide comedy tour.
