Actor, comedian and  talk show host Arsenio Hall is celebrating a birthday Wednesday. Hall was born in Cleveland on February 12, 1956. He’s best known and celebrated for his groundbreaking talk show “The Arsenio Hall Show,” which ran from 1989 to 1994. Last year, he made a late-night comeback on with a new show.

In an interview with USA Today, the veteran actor and comedian said that he had to take time away to be with his family, but he was  ready to re-enter the fray — with his son’s permission:

“I have no regrets. I’ve had an incredible time away. I was able to raise my son in a way that my parents were’t able to be in my life,” because they were so busy working, he says. “When I sat and talked to my son, I was like, ‘I love being a father. There’s nothing I love more than that. But as you need me a little less, I’m going to start addressing the fact that I miss late-night and I might want to try to go back.’ And he was all for it.”
