Actor, Writer, Producer, Comedian, Darryl ‘D’Militant Passes Away

Posted Dec 6, 2021

According to several sources, we have heard that comedian Darryl ‘D’Militant has passed away overnight from his many complications with cancer.

Littleton was an amazing person with whom I recently co-wrote a book titled This Day In Comedy- The Ethnic Encyclopedia Of Laughter.

Littleton was an Emmy-nominated writer and former producer of BET’s Comic View who also appeared on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, ABC’s America’s Funniest People (which he won), and was an actor in which he appeared in such shows as Parent ‘Hood.

Littleton released two comedy CDs, was an NPR commentator for his first book Black Comedians on Black Comedy (which was adapted for a Showtime documentary), and most recently released a virtual calendar This Day In Comedy.

On a personal note, Little was an amazing mentor and great friend to me and to many comedians and writers. Having known that he was battling cancer for a few years he fought a very valiant fight.

I want to send out condolences to his family, his comedy family, his friends, and everyone he touched.

We will love and miss you bro.
