Jerrod Carmichael        

Stand-Up Comedian, Actor & Writer, Known for "The Carmichael Show"

Jerrod Carmichael is a stand-up comedian, actor, and writer. Carmichael created and starred in the semi-biographical NBC sitcom The Carmichael Show.

At the age of 20, Carmichael moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of being a stand-up comic, before he had ever tried stand-up. His first time doing stand-up was an open-mic night at The Comedy Store in West Hollywood. Working his way up through the clubs, Carmichael appeared in the "New Faces" showcase at the 2011 Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. Carmichael's breakout role was in the 2014 film Neighbors. He was also on the TV show The Goodwin Games.

He has released two stand-up HBO comedy specials. The first, Jerrod Carmichael: Love at the Store, was released in 2014. It was directed by Spike Lee and filmed at The Comedy Store, where Carmichael had first performed stand-up. The second, Jerrod Carmichael: 8, was released on March 11, 2017. It was filmed in the New York Masonic Hall's Grand Lodge Room and directed by comedian Bo Burnham.

His eponymous NBC sitcom, on which he starred in and produced, has been well-received and is notable for its envelope-pushing approach to topical subjects like Black Lives Matter, LGBT issues, gun rights, politics, and the reality of being African American in the United States. The show is semi-autobiographical.

Carmichael is also an executive producer for the multi-sitcom sitcom Rel starring his former Carmichael Show co-star Lil Rel Howery.
