From the get go of Jerrod Carmichael being at HBO, he has been constantly innovating the idea of what a comedy special could be and what it looks like (he had an instrumental part in devising Drew Michael’s experimental special that featured no live audience).
Come this Mother’s Day, May 12th at 7PM on HBO, Jerrod will be presenting a much different special called “Home Videos”.
From the looks of these promos, Jerrod is having frank conversations with black women in their homes to present their perspective on HBO, which is both so subtle and radical. We’re curious as to what the whole thing might be and how Jerrod will work his charm in this special.
We’ll find out soon enough on Mother’s Day.
