*Deon Cole, who plays Charlie on ABC’s “black-ish,” returns to his standup roots with the Saturday, June 25, midnight premiere of his first special on Comedy Central.

Titled “Deon Cole: Cole Blooded Seminar,” the goal is to let people know what the world looks like from his perspective. Expect observational humor about life, love and ethnic differences, Cole told the AP.

Among the hour-long show’s topics on the show Comedy Central is billing as “uncensored”: rules to help white people deal with “managing blackness,” why women should ask better questions on dates and the frustrations of smartphones and texting.

Besides his special and his “black-ish” role as Charlie Telphy, co-worker and buddy to Anthony Anderson’s Dre Johnson, Cole is on screen as detective DJ Tanner in the police parody “Angie Tribeca,” in its second season on TBS, and in the movie “Barbershop: The Next Cut.”

He’s also touring nationally with his stand-up act and is a longtime writer for Conan O’Brien, from O’Brien’s stint hosting NBC’s “Tonight” to TBS’ “Conan.”
