For almost two decades, Nick Cannon has been dominating the entertainment industry with his music, comedy, television and film. In fact, for the last thirteen years, he’s offered a platform for up-and-coming comedians to perfect their craft on his hit MTV improv show, “Wild ’N Out.”
But now, after an already super successful career, the comedian is taking his talents to late night with a brand new show, as part of a huge development deal with Fox, which includes Cannon’s upcoming hosting gig on the game show, “The Masked Singer.”
In a new interview with Baller Alert, Cannon opened up about the show, explaining the difference between his show and the legendary 90’s talk show, “The Arsenio Hall Show.” But, as he continued, the comedian also discussed the Kevin Hart controversy, which erupted after old homophobic tweets from the Philly-bred comedic rockstar resurfaced in the wake of Hart’s Oscars hosting gig announcement.
While, it may be a hard time to be a comedian, Cannon said it’s also a very good time to a funnyman or woman. “It’s a good time to be a comedian too cause you get to be honest, you get to be unapologetic,” he said, as he added his opinion on whether or not Hart would return to host the awards, if given the opportunity.
“I don’t think he wants to anymore,” Cannon said. “That’s the sad part.”
In the end, Cannon said, “We all gotta stick together, at the end of the day.”
