Gordon Baker-Bone, Mike Brown, John Minus, Cerrome Russell and Dillon Stevenson have toured collectively since 2012 with multiple sold-out shows in New York, New Jersey, and DC. The Decepticomics members have appeared and performed on MTV, BET, AXS Gotham Live, and Adult Swim. (Like that Facebook page.)
"Like their counterparts in the music industry, many black comedians, including Dick Gregory and Dave Chappelle more recently, have used their platform to weigh in on the social and political issues of their time in a manner that kept audiences laughing and thinking simultaneously. Funny men and women of African descent continue that tradition today, providing a perspective that rarely gets heard beyond the confines of barbershops, churches, and other black meeting spaces. One particular comedic group by the name of The Decepticomics has taken on this responsibility with ease that comes with combined decades of experience and respect for the craft." ― Washington Informer
"The group, made up of Dillon Stevenson (NY Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club), Gordon Baker-Bone (AXS Gotham Comedy Live, Winner 2011 NJ Comedy Fest & Co-Writer “Hater-Bot”), John Minus (Non-Productive Comedy Group, Comix NYC), Mike Brown (Caroline’s Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, and Laugh Lounge) and Cerrome Russell (BET’s “Hell Date”, Knitting Factory, & opener for Hannibal Buress) built their following from the sharp-witted world of Black Twitter, a digital community known for dragging racially insensitive brands and media outlets to their demise, bringing underreported social injustices to national spotlight and turning the timeline into a digital Summer Jam screen for a few immoral “average Joes” (adulterers, deadbeat dads, con artists etc.) Above it all, The Decepticomics cultivated a strong following while simultaneously avoiding the stereotypes of black male comedians." ― CoSign Magazine
