Jerrod Carmichael may be dubbed “a young Bill Cosby”, but that doesn’t mean the 28-year old comedian is going to shy away from talking about his once mentors very public scandal on his NBC series, The Carmichael Show.
HipHollywood caught up with Carmichael during NBC’s recent press tour and found out that nothing, including Bill Cosby, is off limits season 2. “What I will say is we have a responsibility to talk about things that are happening right now, nothing stops me from shying away, or will cause me to shy away from that subject.”
So is that a yes? “Yes, yes,” he said with a laugh. “I just want to be as honest as possible and have some fun and talk about things people are actually talking about.”
The NBC show, that has been renewed after it’s six-episode run last summer, follows Carmichael and his hilarious family as they tackle current events and hot-button issues like race and religion.
Carmichael, who has been vocal about his continued respect for “The Cosby Show” did express his views on the allegations against Cosby. “It’s just an unfortunate situation all around. It’s just a horrible thing where everyone loses, and it breaks your heart, no one likes it, no one feels good.”
