Arsenio Hall (born February 12, 1955) is an American comedian, talk show host, and actor.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio to a Baptist minister, Arsenio was a magician as child. He attended Ohio University (in Athens, OH) before transferring to Kent State University. In 1988, he costarred in the comedy film Coming to America with Eddie Murphy.

In 1989, he began hosting The Arsenio Hall Show, which lasted until 1994. His show was known for the audience's shouting "Whoop whoop whoop!".

After The Arsenio Hall Show ended, Hall made only infrequent appearances on television (including a short-lived 1997 sitcom called Arsenio) before starring in Martial Law with Sammo Hung from 1999-2000[1] and hosting the revival of Star Search in 2003.

Arsenio made a cameo appearance as himself in Chappelle's Show in March 2004, when Dave is imagining what Arsenio is doing right now in a dinner scene. It shows Arsenio at a wine party eating some cheese and saying, "Damn! That's some good ass cheese!" After that, Arsenio starts punching and slapping the people for not telling him about the delicious cheese.
