Jerrod Carmichael is famous for his role in 'Poor Things.'

“This is a real thing you were in Buffalo at a playoffs game, the Chiefs and the Bills were playing, and you’re in the luxury box with Taylor Swift,” host Jimmy Kimmel said to the comedian, as a large snap of the two at the event appeared on the screen.

“Yes,” Carmichael said nonchalantly, before Kimmel added, “That was not set up, that wasn’t part of the show,” referencing the actor’s new docuseries.

“No, I should have asked for it to be on the show. No that’s my best friend. Taylor Swift is my best friend,” he quipped.

Carmichael joked: “I’m not her best friend but she’s my best friend. Can you think of a better friend to have than Taylor Swift. I called my former best friend and said ‘you’re out’ Taylor’s in. You’ve never invited me on your jet to a game.”

“Ya, and she knows more about football than I do,” Carmichael said of the superstar, who has been dating Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce since July 2023.

“She does? Did you ask her questions about football?” Kimmel queried, to which The Carmichael Show alum teased, “Ya, I’m the girlfriend in that situation.”

“And please — I know cause this will be on YouTube I can already see it — the headline underneath is going to be like, ‘Jerrod Carmichael says Taylor Swift’s his best friend,’” Carmichael continued. “Actually you know what, I won’t even get top billing, it will say, ‘Taylor Swift, Jerrod Carmichael’s best friend.' Like don’t do that to me, it gotta be something else. I do love her though.”

"But I wanted to make a show that was the show that happened after those cameras cut," he explained. "Like in between those scenes of what a normal reality show would be, like just me sad and in the fetal position, actually dealing with problems."
