John Richard Whitfield (born May 2, 1992), more widely known by his stage name D.C. Young Fly, is an American comedian, actor and musician. He is well known for his internet videos, and live comedy shows as part of the 85 South Show, alongside fellow Wild 'n Out cast mates Chico Bean and Karlous Miller.
Born the youngest of seven children, Whitfield was raised in the neighborhood of Adamsville on the westside of Atlanta, Georgia. Whitfield discovered his gift of entertaining when he was singing in his church choir as a child and was also known as the "class clown" while attending school. One of his brothers, Richie Whitfield, who went by the stage name 'Da Crew', was murdered. To honor his late brother, he got a tattoo in between his eyebrows.In many of the live comedy shows, he revealed that his father, Solomon, had suffered from Alzheimer's and had passed away.
Starting in 2013, Whitfield started posting comedy videos on the Vine app before the app was shut down and later shifted over to Instagram where he began posting his "roasting session" videos which featured Whitfield mostly mocking famous people which caught the attention of celebrities like as Kevin Hart, Michael Blackson, and LeBron James, and many more, as well as doing parodies.
In 2015, he became a recurring cast member of the improv comedy series Wild 'n Out in the seventh season. He was named the "Rookie of the Year" after his first season. He was the team captain of the "Black Squad" twice (once in season 11 and another, as part of the 85 South Show Podcast in season 12). He is currently the most followed cast member on Instagram.
Whitfield embarked a music career, as a musician, and has worked with numerous musicians such as Juicy J, EARTHGANG, B.o.B, Mike Will Made It, and many more. As of January 2019, he has released a total of five mixtapes, with the latest being "Trap Soul", which was released on January 1, 2019 and is executively produced by Nard & B.
In 2015, he joined Karlous Miller and Clayton English by starting their own comedy podcast called The 85 South Show Podcast, or simply just The 85 South Show. They would transition the podcast into live comedy shows, this would see Chico Bean as the third host, instead of Clayton.
While in high school, Whitfield was selling drugs and was arrested for numerous crimes such as assault and battery, along with robbery. DC was arrested for the first time at the age of 18. He revealed that during his first season on Wild 'n Out, he was battling 11 charges.
DC is very devoted to his mother, Betty Whitfield, whom he gifted a car and bought a house.DC often speaks on his upbringing in the comedy shows, especially stating that mother was a hoarder, and that they would pile up clothes on top of the stove. DC has one daughter, Nova Whitfield, with his girlfriend, Ms Jacky Oh.
