Drop the Mic Productions is hosting a Comedy Countdown show featuring Deon Cole a Comedian and Writer for Conan O’Brien.

Cole has been featured on the tonight show and HBO's Def Comedy Jam. Organizers hope to keep people in Rockford for the holiday and draw visitors from surrounding towns and cities.

"Oftentimes we travel outside of the community. We want to keep the dollars here in Rockford and have something for us to do here in the City of Rockford," said Rita Nesbitt with Open Mic Productions.
The New Year’s Eve Comedy Countdown will be held, Tuesday, December 31st at the Coronado Theater.
