Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse welcomes audiences into its cozy theater-restaurant hybrid confines with open arms to enjoy national and international talents. Sweeping December with a broom of ear-tickling jokes, comedian and actor Deon Cole takes the stage for two nights of unfiltered hilarity, performing noninvasive laugh surgery with his scalpel-sharp wit. Having honed his skills as a hustling comic in Chicago, where comedians are paid in sauerkraut, Cole garnered a fan base and heaps of critical praise as a writer and actor on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and a featured performer on Conan’s live tour. Along with numerous HBO and Comedy Central appearances and acting roles in the Barbershop series, Cole’s rising star continues to supernova into a guffaw nebula. Charming, fearless, and endlessly astute, Cole’s act shakes the historic movie-theater palace of the Arlington Cinema N’ Drafthouse with thunderous laughter, striking emphatic nerves and ransacking funny-bone bags as he takes on universal human foibles with the keenness of a diary thief.
