Taped in December before a live audience at historic Masonic Hall in New York City, the show features his subversive, thought-provoking take on cultural norms.
The special will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.

Carmichael’s feature-film credits include “Neighbors,” “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” “The Meddler” and the upcoming “Transformers: The Last Knight.”
