Jerrod Carmichael (pictured above) just might be a low-key legend. Like many a great before him, his comedic stylings are both irreverent and painfully honest. He’s young, perceptive and obviously comfortable in his own skin, and it comes through in his jokes, which honestly sound less like jokes sometimes and more like a hilariously unique stream of consciousness. As the creator and star of the hit, aptly named multi-cam sitcom The Carmichael Show he’s using this platform to express a point of view that somehow manages to be a combination of sort of cynical, perpetually relevant and remarkably relatable. His talent is emphatically apparent, and it’s evidenced by the presence of a single undeniable truth shared by both his stand up and his show on NBC: Homeboy is relentlessly funny.
