As this is a General Admission show, you will want to show up early if you want to sit close - however, there really isn't a bad seat in the house!

He was actually very funny. I wasn't sure because it was Nick Cannon but he made me laugh for the beginning to the end. The people that opened for him were not the greatest but besides that. It was a good show.

Loved Nick Cannon. He was hilarious. However, his opening acts were so so. Overall, another good experience at the improv.

Description

Cited by People as one of the top ten most successful young people in Hollywood and featured on the cover of Black Enterprises’ 40 Under 40, Nick Cannon is a successful, multi-faceted entertainer: film star, comedian, musician, writer and executive producer of his very own hit TV shows.

A San Diego native, Cannon began performing at the age of eight after his grandfather left him several instruments as a gift. Through what Cannon recalls as “a lot of trial and failure” he recorded his first song at home on his boom box. Shortly after, Cannon took the stage to perform his music along with stand-up comedy. Cannon headed for Hollywood at the age of 15 and landed gigs at world-renowned comedy venues including The Improv, The Laugh Factory and the Comedy Store. Cannon went on to share the stage with the likes of Chris Tucker, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock before landing his first television gig as a stand-up audience warm-up for the long running Nickelodeon hit show “All That.”

Producers quickly recognized Cannon’s calling was in front of the camera and hebecame a regular on the show as well as a writer, making him the youngest staff writer in television history at the age of 17. This path culminated in the creation of “The Nick Cannon Show” which he starred, directed and executive produced, earning him his first Kids Choice Award.

Cannon’s powerful stage presence captivated more than just pint sized audiences. While he enjoyed tremendous success on Nickelodeon, Cannon’s career catapulted onto the big screen in 2002. He made an appearance alongside Will Smith in "Men in Black II” before landing a leading role in the classic feature film “Drumline.” That same year he released his own self-titled debut album, and has collaborated with a host of other musicians, such as Kanye West, The Neptunes, Diddy, Mary J. Blige, Will Smith, R. Kelly and E-40 on soundtracks and other projects.

Cannon later lent his voice to the character of “Louis” in “Garfield: The Movie,” and starred in feature films such “Underclassman” which he also executive produced, “Shall We Dance” and “Roll Bounce.”

In 2005, MTV debuted “Nick Cannon Presents Wild N Out,” an improv comedy show with musical performances that Cannon created, produced and hosted which eventually became one of MTV’s highest rated shows in the network’s history, airing new episodes for four consecutive seasons.

In the fall of 2006, Cannon was featured in the Emilio Estevez written and directed film “Bobby,” a fictionalized account of the hours leading up to the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. Cannon shared the screen with stars such as Harry Belafonte, Demi Moore, Laurence Fishburne, Anthony Hopkins, Sharon Stone among many others. His performance earned him a 2007 SAG nomination for “Outstanding Performance” in addition to becoming the first African-American actor in history to be honored at the world renowned Cannes Film Festival with the “Breakthrough Actor of the Year” award.

In 2008, Nick hosted the Teen Choice Awards for FBC, and was the host/DJ for ABC’s highly successful Presidential Inaugural Neighborhood Ball. NBC announced that Nick would serve as the host for the new season of their hit show, “America’s Got Talent” in 2009.

Cannon’s other film credits include Sundance Film Festival featured films “Weapons,” “American Son,” and his most recent role in the psychological thriller, “The Killing Room.” He now has his own multi-media company called NCredible Entertainment, which has several TV shows and films in development. In addition to the launch of his new company, Cannon hosts a weekly morning radio show “Rollin’ with Nick Cannon” on CBS Radio’s Hot 92.3 in New York.
