Nick Cannon is going big with his 14-year-old comedy show “Wild ‘N Out,” doing a 28-city arena tour that stops at State Farm Arena in Atlanta on Friday, March 6.
The sturdy comedy show, which originally debuted on MTV2 in 2005, has lasted 14 seasons. The 15th season was shot in Atlanta last month and will air sometime in 2020 on VH1. Cannon, 39 has taped more than 200 episodes over the years.
The stage show will feature not just the classic “Wild ‘N Out” improv games where the comics bust each other’s chops but there will be stand-up routines by the likes of DC Young Fly, Karlous Miller (who started his comedy career in Atlanta), Emmanuel Hudson, Justina Valentine, Hit Man, Conceited, DJ D-Wreck and Pretty Vee. The line-up will vary depending on the city.
There will be music as well.
Cannon, currently host of Fox’s hit “The Masked Singer,” will be hosting every live show, including the one at State Farm.
Tickets go on sale Friday, January 10 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster. Prices were not released ahead of time (which is typical nowadays) but a version of this tour in Cincinnati in 2018 cost $60 to $175. A live “Wild ‘N Out” show in St. Louis in 2018 ranged in price from $30 to $175.
