Basic info and storyline
Created and hosted by comedian Nick Cannon, Nick Cannon Presents: Wet ‘N Out is an American comedy improvisation TV series that is targeted to search for up-and-coming stars in the standup comedy field. The show originally premiered in July of 2005 and was put on hold in 2007. In 2012 MTV2 announced that it will be renewing Wild ‘N Out, bringing back stars of the previous seasons, as well as new participants. Season 7 of the series premiered on MTV2 on June 10, 2015.
In this show, Nick Cannon puts two teams of comedians, who are captained by him and a guest celebrity, to battle against each other in an improv hip-hop comedy act. The teams are the Platinum Squad and the Black Squad, which battle each other for four rounds, with the final round set to deliver a punch line in a freestyle rap genre. The competition also includes a musical performance by the guest celebrity.
Ratings, reviews and possible renewal
This series has given rise to such famous comedians as Kevin Hart and Katt Williams, and is an inspiration for many to begin their careers. With decent ratings and that competitive streak, it is sure to stay on the air past the current season. Although no news has been released from MTV2 on the future of the show, we hope that the network will pick up Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ’N Out for season 8 and we will see the comedic bloodshed continue.
