Jerrod Carmichael Comes Out as Gay

Stand-up comedian Jerrod Carmichael comes out as gay in his new HBO special Rothanial...

From Indie Wire 

The special was filmed in February 2022 at the Blue Note Jazz Club, across from the Comedy Cellar, in New York City. Carmichael tells stories of his family history, plus his own coming-out process, in “Rothaniel.”
As reported by Variety, Carmichael recalls catching his father cheating and relating to having a “secret.”
“After that was out in the open, I was left alone feeling like a liar, because I had a secret, one that I kept from my father, my mother, my family, my friends, and you,” Carmichael said. “Professionally, personally. And the secret is that I’m gay.”
Carmichael adds as the audience claps, “I’m accepting the love, I really appreciate the love. My ego wants to rebel against it.”

Coming out is definitely a strategic move and may even boost his career because now he's "different" or "special" and no longer has to be lumped in with all the other regla dagla, typically straight Black male comedians. But yeah, I have no idea who he is neither.

He had The Carmichael Show with Tiffany Haddish, Lil Rel, David Alan Grier and Loretta Divine. It was entertaining. Yeah, he seemed gay. He had zero affection for his onscreen girlfriend.

I just started re-watching the 2015 hit The Carmichael Show this week on hulu. Kinda hard to continue to watch since he had a girlfriend on the show. Darn Jerrod!

I get paid over 190$ per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing..
:) AND GOOD LUCK.:)
