Deon Cole got the opportunity to write for TV host, Conan O'Brien and Katt Williams during the peak of his career. When discussing Katt, Cole said the comedian tested his skills by inviting him to join his writing team. Deon said Katt would continually tell him he wasn't funny, but would insist on him staying on and continue writing. Although his jokes never made the cut, Cole says it was because Williams was organically funny. "He never used nothing that I wrote, but he always just wanted to see what I wrote." He explained, "Certain comics don't really actually need a writer per se, They just need somebody around them that will make them think differently about certain things."
