Jerrod Carmichael rose to fame after his breakout performance in the 2014 comedy film Neighbors, and the same year released his first HBO stand-up comedy special, Love at the Store, directed by Spike Lee. In 2017, comedian Bo Burnham directed Carmichael’s sophomore special released on HBO, Jerrod Carmichael: 8. Carmichael went on to co-create, co-write, produce and star in The Carmichael Show, a semi-biographical sitcom that aired on NBC for three seasons starting in 2015.
In 2022, Carmichael took home an Emmy Award for the writing of his critically acclaimed comedy special, Rothaniel, and earned an Emmy nomination for his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live.
