Carmichael took the awards by storm last year, splitting sides and demonstrating the sharp wit that recently landed him the green light for an NBC comedy presentation. The project will be based on his life and comedy, and is described as "a consummate optimist (Carmichael) who is eager to take on the world".

It's clear that Carmichael is destined for great things, but most importantly, the man's funny as hell. We're honored to welcome him back for SXSW 2013.
