The renowned Actor, Comedian, and TV host Arsenio Hall always had the performing arts in his heart. As a child from the age of 7, he took up an interest in magic and started a career as a magician which he continued until his teenage years performing at various events.
After attaining a college degree in communication, Arsenio moved to LA to pursue his dream in comedy. On arrival in LA, he got his first opportunity in the comic show Alfred Hitchcock Presents which opened him up to greater platforms.
In 1981, he penetrated the Television industry through his appearance on Soul Train and went on to build up a very successful career.
Arsenio didn’t rely on the amount of fame he had attained as he expanded himself into the movie industry in 1987. By 1988, he hit a peak of his career through his roles in the hit Box Office movie Coming To America.
Arsenio went ahead to be the 1st African-American talk show host with his show The Arsenio Hall Show which literally stole the heart of America becoming a huge success. In 1994, he stopped his show as well as removing himself the eye of the media for a space of 3 years to build up his personal life and a family.
In 2012, he proved to the world that performance was not his only strength as he emerged the winner of The Celebrity Apprentice: Season 5. His passion for charity also came to light through his involvement in The Magic Johnson Foundation.
By 2013, he revived his show with a better approach appealing both to the young and old which turned out to be an enormous success after being inspired by his son.
Throughout Arsenio’s career, he has made a total of 57 appearances in movies and shows but all these accomplishments would have meant nothing to him without a family.
Also, Arsenio has maintained his physique through his love for basketball which he has played since his younger years.
