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.
