Starting out in comedy clubs on the South Side of Chicago, comedian, writer and actor Deon Cole has managed to carve out a successful comedy career for himself. Anyone who has watched his standup (with his frank delivery and hilariously calm demeanor) would probably have a hard time denying that the guy is pretty funny. And considering the resume Cole has built up in the last 10 years, his hilarity is an even harder fact to refute.

Cole is probably best known as a member of the writing staff of “Conan,” the TBS late-night talk show with Conan O’Brien, whom he has been working with since 2009. Cole has also recently taken roles on TV shows such as “Angie Tribeca,” “Black-ish,” and “College-ish,” among others, and hosts BET's game show “Face Value." Lately, Cole has been touring the country with his own standup routine, after premiering his first hour-long standup special, "Cole Blooding," on Comedy Central in June of 2016.

He comes to Foxwoods on Friday, and let’s just say that, while some of his older material may seep into Friday's routine, fans of Cole probably won’t be disappointed with whatever he has in store for Foxwoods.

Deon Cole, 8 p.m. Friday, Foxwoods’ Fox Theater; $26; 1-800-200-2882.
