Donnell Rawlings is an overnight success a decade in the making. He made a splash in the DC Comedy Clubs going from a heckler in the audience to HBO's Def Comedy Jam in a period of six months. Today you can watch Donnell on MTV2's most watched shows "Guy Code" and "Hip Hop Squares." In 2007, Donnell co-created and starred in Heavy.com's hit web series "From Ashy to Classy," which was picked up for a second round of episodes. His movie of the same name screened at the 2011 L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival. His rise to stardom may not have been "overnight," but the journey itself has kept him edgy and relevant.
