Deon Cole Lands Writer Gig On The Tonight Show

We just discovered that Chicago's own comedian Deon Cole has just landed a gig to join the newly revamped Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien on NBC.

After the poor ratings the last couple of weeks for The Tonight Show (they lost out to The David Letterman Show on CBS for the first time in weeks), they executives thought it was time to make a change.

As one of the only African Americans to land that type of job, this is an amazing opportunity for Cole, as he now has the opportunity to land an Emmy for writing and more! Look at it this way; Conan O'Brien was also a writer for The Tonight Show and Saturday Night Live.
