MTV Gives Improv a Wild Spin
Think of it as Whose Line Is It Anyway, Bitch? With Nick Cannon Presents Wild 'N Out (premiering tonight at 10pm/ET), MTV takes something as stale as improv comedy and gives it flava by pitting its titular host and a team of comics against a guest "captain" and his own crew of cutups. The result? On-the-fly, hip-hop-influenced yakking and cracking that will push the limits.
Explaining Wild 'N Out's genesis, Cannon (Drumline, Love Don't Cost a Thing) tells TVGuide.com, "I was doing stand-up about a year ago, just hanging out with friends, playing different improv games and cracking on each other as we got ready to go on stage, when it hit me: 'Man, somebody should do a show about this.'
