Nick Cannon’s sketch comedy/performance show is headed for a resurrection. According to HipHollywood.com, Cannon will bring Wild ‘N Out back to the small screen, five years after its last episode aired on MTV.
Just to refresh your memory, the battle style show pitted black and red teams against one another in a battle for comedic supremacy. The series gave big names in comedy—like Kevin Hart, and Katt Williams— a national platform to show off their skills, long before they were household names.
The show also featured special musical guests, and Cannon promised that he would bring back some of the original cast members.
Earlier in the year, Cannon suffered mild kidney failure brought on by a form of lupus. The medical scare forced the businessman to slow down his grind a bit, and change his diet. “I don’t get to eat a lot of things, I like to eat,” he said in an interview. “I’m on a strict diet. Right now I can’t have any sodium , and then I move on to low sodium, but I’ve got a lot to learn.”
Nonetheless, Cannon appears to be making improvements. Two weeks ago he appeared on stage alongside wife Mariah Carey, as she accepted her BMI Icon Award.
No word yet on whether or not the show will appear on MTV, or another network.
