Comedian and sitcom star Jerrod Carmichael to pen first book


Stand-up comic and TV star Jerrod Carmichael is now set to become an author.

The creator-star of NBC's The Carmichael Show will use his first book to explore his life through the framework of the personal interactions that have shaped his world view, his publisher Random House said.

Jerrod said he's excited to share his perspectives on "some of the most interesting people I've encountered, in what I consider the most important medium: the written word".

There is no release date for the book yet.

The Carmichael Show, which follows a fictional version of the comedian and his family, premiered in August 2015 and has been renewed for a third season.
