Nick Cannon on his Broadway plans for Wild 'n Out
The comedic all-stars on Wild’n Out have made the small screen their home for eight seasons, but Nick Cannon just dropped a hint that the cast may be doing improv on an even bigger stage soon.
While speaking about the show’s upcoming eighth season during a game of “Past, Present, Future ” on Entertainment Weekly: The Show, Cannon revealed to host Lola Ogunnaike that he has plans to take Wild ‘n Out to Broadway.
“I was inspired by so many different things that’s going on on Broadway right now — the energy, the talent,” he explained. “And I’ve actually always been inspired by the theater when it comes to Wild ‘n Out. But I was like, ‘There’s some super-duper talented people on my show that need that theater experience.’ So we taking Wild ‘n Out to Broadway.”
But Cannon doesn’t only show off his improvisational talents during Wild ‘n Out skits. The former America’s Got Talent host also revealed that most of the acting on his faux reality show, The Real Husbands of Hollywood — where he stars alongside Kevin Hart, Boris Kodjoe, Duane Martin, JB Smoove, and Nelly — is improv.
“It’s hilarious but we literally just sit there and act up,” he said. “I’ve never seen a Real Husbands of Hollywood script. I don’t know if they have them.”
