Comedian Jerrod Carmichael recently used his new HBO special as an opportunity to come out.

In an interview with Howard Stern on "The Howard Stern Show," Carmichael shared that his comedy special is also when his family found out about his sexuality. But leave it to Carmichael to make light of the whole ordeal only the way a true comedian can.

"I am finally at a place where I can receive (love)," he says about coming out.

In a wide-ranging, open and honest interview with Stern, Carmichael went on to share what life has been like since accepting and embracing his sexuality. That includes dating, in which he shared that he uses a picture of him and Taylor Swift to pull more gays on Grindr.

"You really want to excite the gays in New York City? Send a picture of you and Taylor Swift," says Carmichael.

It's funny because it's true!

Stern also got on the subject of setting him up on a blind date and asking Carmichael who he finds attractive.

"Are you attracted to Timothée Chalamet?" Stern asked.

"Who isn't it?" answered Carmichael.

That's also funny because it's true. Watch the hilarious clip below.
