DREW MICHAEL, the comedian’s first HBO special, debuts SATURDAY, AUG. 25 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT). Jerrod Carmichael, who has starred in two specials of his own on the network, directs.
The special will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and partners’ streaming platforms.

Michael’s darkly comic, stream-of-consciousness monologue raises questions of identity, narrative, self-awareness and the limits of the medium itself. Suki Waterhouse also appears in the special.

Suki Waterhouse stars in the upcoming feature “Assassination Nation,” and was most recently seen in “The Bad Batch.”
