Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out (or Wild 'N Out) is a popular improv comedy series that features two teams of comedians squaring off in "Improv Battles" also each episode features guest turns by musical artists.
Similar in premise to game-type shows such as Whose Line is it Anyway? the series puts two teams of comedians: The "Red Squad" captained by Cannon and the "Black Squad" led by a celebrity guest against each other in a series of games which are all basically "improvisational" comedy games. After three such games, the two teams square off against each other in the final round of the game called Wild Style, in which they must insult the other team member(s) within a freestyle rap. The comedians "beef" with each other; however, some are impersonal jokes. Although similar to Whose Line, the "points don't matter"; the team scores one point per round victory during the normal rounds, plus one point per favorably judged punchline during Wild Style. Each episode also includes a musical performance, occasionally by the guest captain for the Black Squad. At times, the musical guest comes out just before Wild Style as the judge for the beefs. Major changes were implemented for the second season including shifting the show's location to Hollywood and the teams now compete for a "Wild 'N Out" Championship belt which, if the Black Squad wins, the team captain gets to take home.
