If you didnt know better, youd think that the masterminds behind Whose Line Is It Anyway? and Chicagos Second City improv troupe plotted to create Nick Cannon Presents: Wild N Out Season One, one of MTVs highest-rated shows. On each episode of Wild N Out, two comedic teams are pitted against each other. The Red Squad is led by the charismatic Cannon, whos also a film and recording star. The Black Squad is fronted by celebrity guests predominantly of the hip-hop and rap kind (Kanye West, Method Man, Rev Run of Run-DMC). Each participant has to outdo his opposing team members. Sometimes theyre given props to work with. Most of the time, they rely only on their imaginations.
The highlight of each episode is the WildStyle segment in which opposing team members freestyle against each other. Some of their rhymes fall into the "your mama" category. But others are better crafted and no one--not even Cannon--is immune to being taken down a few pegs. The impish Mikey D

Wild n Out DVD: Incomplete Mar 27, 2006
By Michael Gray
I love the show, I've seen all the episodes, but when I saw that the 1st season was going to be released uncensored, I was waiting for the release date. I bought the DVD and still heard more bleeps than punch lines and the musical performances were cut out for no reason.
Sister company Comedy Central: Dave Chepelle season's all have complete musical performances. (No copy right laws if that's what your thinking)
Biggest disappointment: Can't return DVD's.

"Whose Line is It Anyway?", only more urban and more funnier... Mar 09, 2006
By Troy Kearney
Many people may say that Nick Cannon is someone that you wouldn't consider to be really all that talented, considering that his last few movies and music albums haven't really set the big screen or the airwaves on fire. However, if there is one particular realm that Cannon may have found his niche in, it's the world of comedy. Improv comedy, that is. MTV wanted to test this out by creating Wild 'N Out, and the results gave the network high ratings and a 2nd season of the series (currently in progress).
Nick Cannon Presents: Wild 'N Out is a sketch comedy show that plays like a more urbanized version of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?", with 2 teams of comedians (Red Squad, led normally by Cannon, and the Black Squad, led by a celebrity guest) facing off in a series of games that showcase the comedy skills. Each game culminates in a final round called WildStyle where the teams face off in a freestyle rapping competition similar to 8 Mile. The teams earn points for the main games but in WildStyle each punchline can score 1 individual point towards the final team score.
Wild 'N Out-Season One is a 3 disc set which contains the first 10 episodes of the series (Episodes 1-5 are on Disc 1 while 6-10 are on Disc 2) and features Cannon taking on Orlando Jones (Cannon's co-star from Drumline), Christina Milian (Cannon's now-former girlfriend), Method Man, Omarion, Kanye West, Eva Pigford (America's Next Top Model Cycle 3 winner), and more.
Each episode contains extra extended games that didn't get to air on the show, bonus sketches and more. The 3rd disc is full of special features including more bonus games, extended games, bloopers, best of WildStyle (If you watch the Kanye West episode, in which he pretty much decimates Red Squad, the best of WildStyle segment is required viewing as it contains an extended version and it is CLASSIC since Kanye REALLY unleashes on Red Squad!) and a video featuring the sexy Wild 'N Out Girls.
While the disc set is uncensored there are some things that are still censored out even though it is on DVD, but that doesn't take away from the uproarious humor Nick and the crew bring.
So if you want to get a little Wild and laugh, get Wild 'N Out...

Very enjoyable... [BUT]... could've been ALOT better! Apr 11, 2006
I know it's been a common complaint among users, but yeah it bugged me enough to put out my two cents in. When i purchased the DVD box, i expected UNCENSORED performances. Since the vast majority of the comedy is verbal, it's upsetting when you don't know what the comedians are saying with their punch-lines being bleeped out. It leaves you trying to figure out the missing lines which COMPLETELY defeats the purpose of watching improv comedy.
Moreover, the missing musical acts takes alot away from the show, too. As soon as the final act/game is over, it cuts out leaving the showing feeling like it's been rushed toward completion. On top of that, i'd really really like to SEE some of these acts (ie. T.I., Cassidy) so why the HECK not?!
To sum things up.. it was a GREAT watch. Some really funny stuff, and decent extras... but why not get the WHOLE deal when you pay the price for just that? In the end... i still feel deceived and ripped off.
Boo nick cannon. Boo.

The best show on MTV Feb 06, 2006
This is by far the best show I've seen from all of last year. It's very funny too. I love the contests that they have, the things they have the contestants do are absolutely hillarious. And this is certainly a lot better than that absoltuely dreadful Andy Milonakis show. This is a major come back for MTV.
