Arsenio Hall Booking Agency Profile

Book Arsenio Hall for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Stand-up comedian, actor, and talk show host Arsenio Hall changed the face of late-night talk TV with his syndicated Arsenio Hall Show. Hall was discovered by jazz singer Nancy Wilson in one of his stand-up shows. In the following few years, Arsenio toured, opening for major headliners including Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, and Stevie Wonder. Arsenio was asked to replace Joan Rivers on the Fox Network series The Late Show." On the strength of his work as interim host, he was signed to a film and television deal with Paramount Pictures, which led to the opportunity to co-write and co-star in the hit comedy "Coming to America" with Eddie Murphy. Arsenio joined the cast of the CBS dramedy, "Martial Law," playing a streetwise L.A.P.D. detective. He followed this with a two-season stint as Host of the new "Star Search" and then returned to stand-up comedy. A revival of Hall's syndicated late-night talk show, The Arsenio Hall Show, premiered on Tribune owned stations and other networks via CBS Television Distribution. Hall Show marked the first time a black entertainer had ever hosted a late-night program. Arsenio continues hosting events, including the BET Honors, and performing stand-up comedy across the country. While critics have sniped at Hall's obsequious interviewing style, he managed to carve out a distinctive audience by regularly featuring such previously unthinkable guests as hardcore rappers, professional athletes, and African-American political figures, President-to-be Bill Clinton famously donned sunglasses and played the saxophone. .
