Watch The Trailer for Jerrod Carmichael’s Suicide Comedy “On the Count of Three”

First, Jerrod Carmichael upends the world of comedy with his first hour special in years, Rothaniel. The reverberations from his beautiful, confessional special will be felt for awhile, but now he has another thing coming that might also make as many waves, his directorial debut (co-written by Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch), On the Count of Three.

It’s a suicide comedy starring Carmichael and Christopher Abbott that seems to be as dark as you can get with a comedy grounded in the real world. It also had a pretty great reception during its festival run this past year and it might be the sort of pitch perfect, cathartic comedy that a lot of folks are looking for right now.

Certainly, On The Count of Three, was already pretty high on our list of movies we’re really itching to see this year, but this first trailer for it bumped up even further. Thank goodness it coming out next week on May 13th in theaters and on VOD.
