NJPAC presents comedian Deon Cole

(NEWARK, NJ) -- Get Ready! New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) welcomes comedian Deon Cole on Saturday, April 13, 2024 at 8:00pm. One of the most brilliant comics today, Deon Cole, can make anybody laugh.

Cole has released acclaimed standup specials on Netflix and Comedy Central (Charleen's Boy, Cole Hearted, Cole Blooded Seminar). You probably recognize him from his memorable performances on Black-ish and Grown-ish and his recurring role as Dante in the Barbershop film franchise. Deon honed his joke-writing chops as an Emmy-nominated writer on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and Conan and countless appearances at clubs and venues nationwide. Take advantage of his latest round of hilarious new material.

Deon Cole is a comedian, writer, and actor who can currently be seen in the critically acclaimed drama series Average Joe for BET+.

Deon acts in Jeymes Samuels' The Harder They Fall, opposite Idris Elba and Regina King, for Netflix, and Kenya Barris' You People, for Netflix, opposite Eddie Murphy. In addition, Deon stars in the Amblin/Warner Bros. adaptation of The Color Purple, opposite Taraji P. Henson and Colman Domingo, directed by Blitz Bazawule. For his work on Black-Ish, Deon won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series three times at the 2020, 2021 & 2022 NAACP Image Awards. His standup documentary, Workin' It Out, debuted exclusively on Netflix. It is a joke's YouTube channel and has garnered 6 million views on social media and over 2 million views on Youtube.

Tickets range from $39.50 to $99.50 and are available for purchase online, by calling 888. GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722) or by visiting the NJPAC Box Office at 1 Center Street, Newark, New Jersey.
