He says he still hasn't experienced any Covid-19 symptoms, despite having tested positive for the virus.
"Apparently, I just lost consciousness".
While performing Friday night at Zanies Comedy Club before a sold-out crowd, Hughley, 57, suddenly struggled to speak before going limp.
"I was what they call asymptomatic", Hughley relayed on Twitter and IG.
"In addition to all the other stuff you have to look out for, if your a- passes out in the middle of a show onstage, you probably need to get tested", he added.
"Well thank you for your prayers and your well wishes and a few more of them wouldn't hurt, so hopefully I won't develop symptoms".
With restaurants and local businesses reopening across the country, and following Dave Chappelle's welcomed return to stand-up last week, comedian D.L. Hughley made a decision to perform a show to a packed bar.
Hughley said he still hasn't exhibited any of the typical symptoms associated with the coronavirus, including shortness of breath and fever.
The rep explained D.L. was 'suffering from exhaustion after all the week's work and travel, and was kept overnight at the hospital for tests under doctor's orders'.
He shared the news with his fans in a video on Saturday evening (June 20).
Hughley also gave his fans an update on social media and revealed that he was diagnosed with COVID-19 after undergoing tests at the hospital.
Hughley also produced and starred in "The Hughleys", which aired on ABC and UPN from 1998 to 2002 and hosted a CNN talk show.
