We know all there is to know about David A. Arnold and his career.
Arnold, who was born on March 15, 1968, attended Beachwood High School. He became interested in standup comedy after seeing Eddie Murphy’s Delirious spectacular. Arnold then made his stand-up debut at Cleveland’s Hilarities 4th Street Theatre.
He began his career as a comedian in 1990 and became a television writer in 2000. David has written for television series such as Meet the Browns, House of Payne, The Rickey Smiley Show, and others. He also wrote and produced the Netflix series Fuller House.
Arnold hoped to follow in the footsteps of other comedians who had developed series based on their shows. Although he was in talks with BET about creating a sitcom based on his life, the project never got off the ground. He recently said on the Renaissance Man podcast that BET informed him he was not black enough and hence not marketable. David went on:
“That’s why they informed me. This is something I’ll never forget. I was in the process of creating a show with Kevin Hart.”
He quickly achieved popularity on social media, and his outburst videos were well received by his fans. Arnold said that he continues to release films and comic rants like he did 15 years ago. In addition, he stated:
“I began ranting about what it’s like to raise adolescent children with a woman who is always in your goddamn ear, and then this s**t took off.” And I went from having no followers to having over a million on all of these sites.”
Arnold created the Nickelodeon comedy show That Girl Lay Lay. Meet the Browns, A Series of Unfortunate People, and The Tony Rock Project were among the programs he appeared in. David A. Arnold: Fat Ballerina and Ain’t For the Weak, his stand-up comedy specials, are accessible on Netflix.
