Deon Cole delivers totally unapologetic, razor-sharp humor and biting racial observations on his upcoming album. Recorded at the Lincoln Theater in Washington, D.C., Cole educates white people about the art of managing blackness in certain situations, why women need to ask better questions on a date, his frustration with smartphones and texting, and much, much more. Deon Cole: Cole Blooded Seminar is out June 28 from Comedy Central Records.
Deon Cole plays the hilarious co-worker Charlie, on ABC’s hit comedy “Black-ish” and as DJ Tanner in TBS’s “Angie Tribeca” starring Rashida Jones, created by Nancy and Steve Carell, which returned for a second season on Monday, June 6. He was recently seen in the feature film “Barbershop: The Next Cut” starring Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Regina Hall, Common and Nicki Minaj. Cole also continues to be a featured guest correspondent on “Conan” where he was also a two-time Emmy-nominated writer.
