Most recently named one of Variety’s 2019 10 Comics to Watch, D.C. Young Fly’s expansive work in the comedy, acting, and digital spheres have made him a standout as an entertainment multi-hyphenate. A comedian, actor, social media influencer, musician, and podcast host, D.C. has proven that innate comedic ability, abundant creativity, and a passion for generating laughter in others can be translated across multiple mediums.
Originally having picked up traction for his hilarious videos & roasts on Vine, D.C. is a fan-favorite amongst today’s generation. Recently concluding an overall holding deal with MTV/VH1, D.C. is the most sought out veteran cast member and can regularly be seen on Nick Cannon’s WILD’N OUT, entering its 15th season this year. He was also seen bringing the humor as host of the reboot of MTV’s TOTAL REQUEST LIVE.
On the acting front, his credits include BET’s THE NEW EDITION STORY, Will Packer’s ALMOST CHRISTMAS, in which he plays ‘Eric’ alongside Mo’Nique, J.B. Smoove, and Gabrielle Union, and can most recently be seen as the lead in the Universal Comedy Feature for MTV, HOW HIGH 2, which has received notable acclaim for being the highest rated Saturday program on the network in six years.
D.C. also played ‘Jaymo' in Jerrod Carmichael’s multicam comedy series for FOX (REL). He can be seen recurring in Kenya Barris’ GROWNISH for Freeform and in Master P’s Independent Feature, I GOT THE HOOK UP 2.

D.C. has also made several unscripted guest appearances on projects including BET’s gameshow, BLACK CARD REVOKED, and continued on all 3 seasons of VH1’s HIP HOP SQUARES, where his natural comedic timing plays well with the energy of live audiences.
As a musician, D.C. has also taken the reins in the music industry, reaching Top 10 on iTunes R&B earlier this year with his 12th mixtape, TRAPSOUL. Popular for his carefully crafted lyricism, not only has DC written for himself, but for other artists including R&B singer Toni Romiti, and was featured in her song NEVER THOUGHT, where he displays his vocal ability and depth.
As a creator, D.C.’s original online comedy videos have garnered him a huge following including over 9 million Instagram followers, 1.4 million Facebook fans and 23 million views on YouTube. Always a fan of live performances, he tours the country both as a headliner for sold out shows in the stand-up comedy space and also as a co-host of the hilarious 85 SOUTH SHOW live podcast alongside Chico Bean and Karlous Miller.
