All that jazz (Image via HBO Max) Comedian Jerrod Carmichael, who is hosting SNL on Saturday, officially came out as gay in his HBO special Rothaniel, which began streaming Friday.

The special strikes a contemplative tone, opening with a jazzy intro and shot in a darkened club. There is definitely an artful, sometimes throwback, quality to the exquisitely shot special that lends it a depth and authenticity.

The show begins with Carmichael confessing his real first name is Rothaniel, a great source of shame because of how it sounds and because it honors his dishonorable grandfathers.
