Jerrod Carmichael Saturday Night Review The Best And Worst Hosting Debut.

Rothaniel Jerrod Carmichael is an American stand-up comedian, actor, and filmmaker.

In the wake of his new HBO special Rothaniel and Will Smith’s trauma-inducing Oscars slap of Chris Rock

Jerrod Carmichael stopped by Saturday Night Live to host alongside musical guest Gunna. The 34-year-old

Carmichael has quietly built a comedian’s dream résumé.

He starred in the critically acclaimed The Carmichael Show for three seasons,

during which Jerrod achieved what many believed to be impossible:

a multi-cam that was both hip and funny. His three hilarious HBO comedy specials, Love at the Store, 8, and the aforementioned Rothaniel,

deploy the intimacy and classiness of a vintage jazz album. He was also hired by Quentin Tarantino to co-write a film and recently directed and starred in the 2021 Sundance Film Festival darling On the Count of Three, which The Guardian said was “proof that Carmichael was a director to be excited about.” We’re looking at an artist here, and he’s a great get for SNL.
