Jerrod Carmichael Has Jokes - Watch 2 Clips from HBO's 'Love at The Store' (Directed by Spike Lee)

In December, it was announced that NBC was developing a pilot for a new comedy starring and created by up-and-coming comic, Jerrod Carmichael, which would be based on Carmichael’s comedy and life. It wasn’t picked up by the network, but NBC gave Carmichael another shot, with another new pilot, which the network was said to be fast-tracking. 

No updates on that yet, but, clearly NBC wants to work with the young comic; As does HBO, by the way, who, earlier this year, ordered Carmichael’s first stand-up comedy special for the network, which was taped in Hollywood on May 7, and was directed by Spike Lee

Produced for HBO by Funny Or Die, and executive produced by Anna Wenger, Betsy Koch and Jerrod Carmichael, it’s titled “Love at the Store,” and is scheduled to debut this Saturday, October 4th at 10PM, only on HBO. 

Jerrod Carmichael’s credits include the feature film “Neighbors” and the TV series “Comedy Bang! Bang!,” “Lucas Bros Moving Co” and “The Goodwin Games.”

This was first time even hearing of this young brother and ibis routine was refreshing and smart. It’s about time we hear someone who thought about the intelligence of his audience. Keep pushing on J.


I watched his HBO special this past weekend. He’s uhhhh, interesting–interesting delivery, content, etc.


Spike only supports those he’s not threatened by. B-List game recognizes B-List game.

There are many comedians out here who are much funnier than this guy. How in the world did he get a special on HBO?
