Deon Cole is one of the most in-demand talents on the comedy scene. Not only is he currently a cast member on four TV shows, he has also appeared in several hit feature films, released multiple stand-up specials and follows a non-stop tour schedule. Armed with a “comic authority born of undeniable charisma” (AV Club), his completely unique style and delivery have made him a wildly popular performer with fans and critics alike.
Cole plays the character of adjunct college professor Charlie Telphy on ABC’s hit series “black-ish.” His role on the Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning show, now in its fourth season, is a favorite. In early 2018, he will bring the beloved Charlie to Freeform in the “black-ish” spin-off series “grown-ish.” The much anticipated half-hour comedy, which Cole will star in alongside “black-ish” breakout Yara Shahidi, is a contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education.
