Tommy Davidson’s exceptional range – from stand-up comedy and acting to versatile music accomplishments – have earned him a reputation as an extraordinary performer. Best known as one of the stars of the hit television show In Living Color, his visibility has allowed him to become a household name known for his innovative talent.

Davidson started his career as a standup comedian in Washington DC, earning an ardent following with relentless work in the leading comedy clubs. As one of the cutting-edge, young stand-ups, he was spotted by major concert promoters who booked him as the opening act for A-list tours including Patti LaBelle, Kenny G and Luther Vandross. It wasn’t long before he came to Hollywood and was headlining at a number of clubs, including the Comedy Act Theatre, where he met Robert Townsend. This led to his first national television appearance with a starring role in Partners in Crime and was the conduit to Keenan Ivory Wayans, who proved instrumental in Davidson’s career by offering him an opportunity to audition.

Tommy and Jamie Foxx, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier — the uniquely talented cast of the most adventurous primetime variety show on television, In Living Color (1990), made TV history. The iconic sketch show was recently honored with the ‘Groundbreaking Award” by TV Land in a star-studded salute guided by Whoopi Goldberg and this year celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Tommy’s film debut started opposite Halle Berry in Strictly Business. A range of feature film roles from Spike Lee’s Bamboozled, where he received acclaim and praise for his turn as “Womack/Sleep ‘N Eats,” to Juwanna Mann (Morgan Creek Productions’) and the pivotal cameo in Jim Carrey’s Ace Ventura II: When Nature Calls, followed. He starred in 2011’s landmark, award-winning documentary, I Am Comic, opposite Tim Allen, Lewis Black, Sarah Silverman, Carlos Mencia, Jeff Foxworthy and Kathy Griffin.

Davidson’s hilarious impressions of Sammy Davis Jr., Michael Jackson and other icons have become infamous. His visibility on In Living Color led to three Showtime specials: On Strength of New York, Illin’ in Philly and Takin’ it to DC. Tommy is the host and star of Showtime’s 2013 Chocolate Sundaes special (eOne) which garnered rave reviews upon premiere and remains one of eOne Film’s best sellers.

In 2015, he was cast in a starring role in Frat Pack, an unapologetic comedy shooting in Toronto. The indie feature centers on a shy late 20s British bachelor who is dragged on a wild road trip to a fraternity party as his mother marries into a larger than life American family. Think “Road Trip” meets “Bridesmaids” meets “Project X” with a bit of “American Pie” thrown in.

His elasticity as a performer who delivers on the small screen ranges from his guest starring role in season 4 of the hot BET show, Real Husbands of Hollywood, opposite Kevin Hart and Nick Cannon and as the star of Will Smith’s animated series, Youngin’s and Disney’s animated series, The Proud Family
Tommy stars opposite Michael Jai White in the critically-lauded spoof comedy, Black Dynamite (Sony Pictures) as the character ‘Cream Corn.’ The cult hit was adapted as an animated series for the Cartoon Network, becoming a breakout hit. It continues to garner the highest ratings the Turner imprint has ever experienced setting the precedent for all Adult Swim series.

Christopher Titus @ The Comedy Zone

Employing what he’s labeled “hard funny,” Christopher Titus has released seven ninety-minute albums in as many years. He has six one-hour comedy specials currently running on Comedy Central, and his seventh special, Born With a Defect, spent four weeks on the Billboard Top Ten Comedy Chart. After years of experimentation with dark and personal storytelling, he debuted his one-man show “Norman Rockwell is Bleeding” at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles. It was from this performance that the dark comedy, “Titus,” was born on Fox. The show earned Titus a Writer’s Guild nomination as well as an Emmy nomination, and Newsday called him “TV’s most original voice since Seinfeld.”

His second show, “The Fifth Annual End of the World Tour,” was released in 2007 to rave reviews. Titus tackled such difficult issues as the Iraq war, racism, pedophilia and even his father’s unconventional and ridiculous funeral, where he, with his brother and sister’s help, spread his father’s ashes in a casino. These are issues most comedians would run from, but Titus never walks into the familiar.

“Love Is Evol,” Titus’ third one-man show, deconstructs relationships in a way no comic has ever attempted. Titus wades into domestic violence, plastic surgery, custody and all aspects of the nightmare relationships. This groundbreaking comedy special premiered on Comedy Central on Valentine’s Day. The album and dvd were released on February 15th, 2009. Titus claims that “this show will either fix your relationship or destroy it, and either way, you’re welcome.”

“Neverlution,” aired on Comedy Central on July the 4th, 2010. Titus takes no prisoners in this special, tackling the problems of our country, one joke at a time. He quotes, “every joke is a tiny revolution.” Titus declares that it’s time to take our country back, namely from today’s spoiled children, prescription medication, the media, technology and terrorism.

Titus’ fifth special, “Voice In My Head,” aired on Comedy Central in October 2013. This lighthearted show details all of Titus’ biggest screw-ups, including a hilarious story about his first job as Darth Vader for children’s birthday parties.

“Angry Pursuit of Happiness,” which premiered on Comedy Central in 2015, is Titus at his best, and he leaves no stone unturned in his relentless pursuit for the true meaning of life. Titus covers everything from the Pope, the Boston Bombing, to his Dad’s awkward, yet hilarious ED problem. In one of his most epic and darkly funny bits, Titus solves the nation’s problems by “Arming the Children.”

“Born With a Defect” was released in 2017, and held on the Billboard Top Ten Comedy Chart for four straight weeks. Titus claim is, “If you have kids, this show is 90 minutes of therapy. If you don’t, it’s 90 minutes of birth control.”

Titus is currently performing his newest one-man show, “Amerigeddon,” to sold out theaters across the country.

Titus shone in 2007 as the lovable character, Brody, in ABC’s “Big Shots.” He shared the screen with Dylan McDermott, Michael Vartan and Joshua Molina as a successful CEO who had total control in business, and no control in his relationship.

Inspired by such greats as Woody Allen, Steve Martin, and Cosby, who wrote, directed, produced and performed, Titus has sold ideas to NBC, ABC, FOX and Comedy Central. In 2013, Titus formed his own production company, Combustion World Industries, and produced his two most recent comedy specials, “Voice In My Head” and “Angry Pursuit of Happiness.” His first feature film production, “Special Unit,” wrapped in March of 2016, and is about four disabled detectives. Titus describes it as “The Shield with handicapped people” and is planning for release in January 2017.

After watching Christopher Titus perform live, there is no doubt that he is one of the best comics working today. With the complete package of comedy, acting and writing, there hasn’t been a performer like him in a long time.

Deon Cole @ The Comedy Zone

Deon Cole is one of the most in-demand talents on the comedy scene. Not only is he currently a cast member on four hit TV shows, he has also appeared in several popular feature films, released multiple standup specials, and follows a non-stop tour schedule. Armed with a “comic authority born of undeniable charisma” (AV Club), Deon’s completely unique style and delivery have made him a wildly popular performer with fans and critics alike.

Deon plays the character of adjunct college professor “Charlie” 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, with Vulture declaring “Deon Cole is a comedic genius,” AV Club naming him a “scene stealer,” and Variety offering “Cole reminds me of John Belushi, another performer who brought essential sweetness to his unpredictable characters, and who could make you laugh just by looking a certain way at another person on screen.” In January 2018 Deon brought the beloved “Charlie” to Freeform in the Black-ish spinoff series Grown-ish, with Variety declaring him “the hilarious secret weapon that “Black-ish” has deployed in many side-splitting workplace scenes.” The half-hour comedy, which Deon stars 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.

Deon also stars as “Det. Daniel “DJ” Tanner” on the TBS comedy Angie Tribeca. The popular show, created by Steve and Nancy Carell, also stars Rashida Jones and is currently in its fourth season. In addition to his three scripted shows, Deon host the game show Face Value currently airing on BET. The show, Executive Produced by Wanda Sykes, finally answers the age-old question, “Can you judge a book by its cover?” Face Value flips the script to award cash and prizes to contestants for correctly guessing facts about strangers from all walks of life – based solely on their appearance and a few personal details. As host, Deon humorously breaks down stereotypes, exposes prejudices, and celebrates the human spirit by highlighting the commonalities and differences among people of various backgrounds, races, religions, beliefs and life experiences.

In addition to Deon’s cast member status on four TV shows, Deon will appear in the Whitney Cummings directed film The Female Brian. Fellow castmembers of the much-anticipated feature include Toby Kebbell, Beanie Feldstein, Cecily Strong, Sofia Vergara, Blake Griffin, Lucy Punch, and James Marsden. He has also been featured on several other comedy fan-favorite series including Benched (USA), The League (FX), and Wild N’ Out with Nick Cannon (MTV). He hosted his own series Deon Cole’s Black Box on TBS in 2013, and he is a familiar face on the latenight and daytime circuits, with multiple appearances on Conan (TBS), @midnight (Comedy Central), Last Call with Carson Daly (NBC), The Talk (CBS), and The Real (BET). Deon earned his first Writers Guild Award Nomination and his first Emmy Nomination for “Writing for A Variety, Music or Comedy Program” in 2010 as part of the writing staff on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien (NBC). He earned his second Emmy Nomination in 2011 for his work with the writers of CONAN (TBS) and he wrote for Conan O’Brien when he hosted the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner. Most recently, Deon received a 2017 NAACP Image Award Nomination for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” for his work on Black-ish and was featured as a presenter at the 2017 BET Awards.

In June 2016, Deon’s first hour standup special Cole Blooded Seminar premiered on Comedy Central. His half hour special premiered on Netflix’s The Standups on July 4th, 2017. His standup comedy has also been featured on Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam (Showtime), John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show (Comedy Central), and Laffapalooza (Comedy Central), along with his own Comedy Central Presents: Deon Cole. On the big screen, Deon was seen in all three movies in the wildly popular Barbershop feature film franchise, and he will appear alongside Sofía Vergara, Alysia Reiner, and Chris D’Elia in the feature The Female Brian directed by Whitney Cummings.

Deon performs standup to sold out audiences at venues across the country. He is originally from the south side of Chicago and currently lives in Los Angeles.
