Nick Cannon hosted Wild’ N Out Live 2017 at the CFE Arena on September 23, 2017.

Wild ‘N Out was created by Cannon which debuted in 2005 on MTV.

The show is in its Ninth Season on MTV. They have taken the Improv Comedy show on the road.

The CFE Arena is located on the campus at the University of Central Florida. There was a big college crowd along with Millennials that were in attendance.

Brian Hixenbaugh, General Manager of the CFE Arena said, “The show is sold out tonight. They weren’t sure if they were going to cancel the show due to the impact of Hurricane Irma here in Florida. Collectively they decided that the show should go on and looked at avenues they could give back. CFE Arena and Nick Cannon are both donating some of the proceeds to the Hurricane Irma victims in Florida.”

There were a list of stand-up comedians, Chico bean, RIP Michaels, DC Young Fly, Conceited, Emmanuel Hudson, Hitman Holla, Karlous Miller and Matt Rife. DJ Devastator played Hip Hop music throughout the show. Special Musical Guest Hip Hop Artist Rich Homie Quan came out on stage and got the crowd hyped. Everyone was standing on their feet dancing to his hit songs.

The cast breaks out in freestyle battles of rapping and hosts games like “Family Reunion”. The Family Reunion is where the cast is divided into teams and locate their favorite “make believe family relatives” from the audience. The audience sings along with the cast a jingle “At the family reunion! Who we introducing, who we introducing.” Some of the audience gets to go on the stage and participate. It was a night of laughing, dancing and singing along with the Wild’ N Out cast.
