He and fellow "Original Kings of Comedy" comic/friend Steve Harvey share the distinction of a cast member from "The Jeffersons" having made guest appearances on their self-titled sitcoms as their TV mothers: Marla Gibbs played D.L. Hughley's mother (and in the movie "The Brothers" as well), and Isabel Sanford played Steve Harvey's mother.
Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
[on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006)] I think that like most things that are highly touted - the number-one draft pick - we crumpled under the weight of expectations. I think that's a fairly common phenomenon. I think we could have not taken ourselves so seriously. We pulled back the curtain too much. It's like when you go to a restaurant: It can be the best restaurant in the world, but I just want to eat the meal. I don't want to know how they make the steak. I think we spent so much time explaining and making what we did "important." We weren't inclusive enough. We had conversations with ourselves to hear ourselves.
