Jerrod Carmichael: 8
Jerrod Carmichael returns to HBO for his second stand-up special, Jerrod Carmichael: 8. Taped in December before a live audience at the historic Masonic Hall in New York City, the show features his subversive, thought-provoking take on cultural norms.
Performing in the round and engaging audience members during his act, Carmichael addresses a wide range of subjects, including Trump’s victory, climate change, supporting the troops, animal rights, being a good boyfriend and his top four fears, as well as exploring larger themes like race, politics, love and family.
Jerrod Carmichael made his HBO debut in 2014 with the solo special Jerrod Carmichael: Love at the Store. He currently stars in the broadcast network comedy series The Carmichael Show, which begins its third season this year. Carmichael’s feature-film credits include Neighbors, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, The Meddlerand and Transformers: The Last Knight.
Jerrod Carmichael: 8 is an A24 production directed by Bo Burnham; executive produced by Jerrod Carmichael, John Hodges, Ravi Nandan, Bo Burnham and Christopher Storer.
