Since making his debut on the national stage in 2014 with his stand-up comedy special on HBO, Winston-Salem native Jerrod Carmichael has continued to grow as a comedian, actor, and writer. Last weekend Carmichael added director to his list of accomplishments with his debut film “On the Count of Three.”

The comedy thriller, adapted from a screenplay written by Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch, follows two friends, played by Carmichael and Christopher Abbott, who make a suicide pact and set out to have one final day to take care of unfinished business.

The movie debuted May 13 and also stars  Tiffany Haddish, J.B. Smoove, Lovell Crawford, and Henry Winkler.

May has been a busy month for Carmichael. In addition to making his directorial debut earlier this month, he was also the celebrity guest on Saturday Night Live. He also released his third HBO special, “Rothaniel.”

“On the Count of Three” is playing at the a/perture cinema, 311 W. Fourth Street, today (Thursday, May, 19) at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. To purchase tickets, visit .
