Chicago-born comic and actor Deon Cole’s list of TV credits is longer than Bill Cosby’s rap sheet, including stints on the ABC comedy Black-ish and the TBS series Angie Tribeca. With his resonantly gruff voice, this former Conan writer excels at jokes about racial differences (including things he hates doing around white people) and what he calls “questions that will blow your mind,” a routine that bears similarities to the cosmic/mundane absurdities of Steven Wright. Cole wonders why Adam and Eve had belly buttons: “Who cut they umbilical cords?” A white friend implored Cole to try free-range chickens, but after discovering how expensive they are, Cole says he’d rather eat stressed-out fowl. His anti-millennial rants may draw as many laughs as they will eye rolls, but Cole’s hit-to-miss ratio is very high. DAVE SEGAL
