Arsenio Hall

Oprah catches up with late-night talk show host Arsenio Hall for an in-depth conversation about his return to late-night TV after nearly 20 years. Filmed at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, Arsenio talks about the significance of being one of the only African-American hosts currently on late-night television and what he has learned in his two decades away from the spotlight. He shares the reason behind his move to L.A. as a young comic and the professional advice he has received from late-night TV host and friendly rival Jay Leno. Arsenio also discusses knowing he was meant to make people laugh, how his comedy was shaped by his Baptist minister father, the importance of being a hands-on single dad, and his relationship with his son today.
