Donnell Rawlings and Friends

Donnell Rawlings is a force both on and off the stage as a Comedian, Actor, and Podcaster.   He first captured the attention of his fans with his hilarious sketches as Ashy Larry on CHAPPELLE’s SHOW, but it was his critically acclaimed role as Damien "Day-Day" Price on HBO’s THE WIRE that turned heads and legitimized him as a serious actor and catapulted him in the theatrical world. Donnell just surprised fans with his character, Alvin’s unexpected return in the hit STARZ TV series BMF/BLACK MAFIA FAMILY — after airing just two episodes, the series was already picked up for its 3rd season. Most recently, he was seen in Adam McKay's acclaimed HBO series WINNING TIME: THE RISE OF THE LAKERS DYNASTY.

Donnell is also enjoying filming his podcast, THE DONNELL RAWLINGS SHOW, from his new home in Yellow Springs, Ohio which airs on the 5 top platforms and has reached over 5 million views. 

As part of Netflix’s Comedy Festival, Donnell co-starred in SNOOP DOGG’s F*CN AROUND COMEDY SPECIAL, joined DAVE CHAPPELLE AND FRIENDS at the Hollywood Bowl, toured with CHRIS ROCK & DAVE CHAPPELLE across the globe and performed his solo show at the IMPROV in Hollywood.

Besides his stand-out role on CHAPPELLE’s SHOW, Donnell was lauded for his role as Dez in Pixar’s blockbuster film SOUL.  In turn, Donnell was honored with The Redd Foxx Award by The African-American Humor Awards in 2021.

Donnell was born in Washington D.C. and grew up in Alexandria, VA and served in the United States Air Force where he was stationed in South Korea and at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, D.C. in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Donnell’s most significant part of his life is being a father to his 7-year-old son, Austen.
