MTV’s highest-rated series, Wild N Out, is taking the show on the road and performing live for fans. Creator of the show, Nick Cannon, teamed up with Comedian RIP Michaels to produce the Wild N Out Live tour, which kicked off in early September in New York. Last weekend, the show made a pit stop in Washington, D.C. and Maryland and rocked the house!
For the first time in history, there were two shows in one night; one in Maryland at Showplace Arena and the other in D.C. at the Capital One Arena. The D.C. show was hosted by WKYS’ own DJ Quicksilva and Dominique Da Diva with performances by Wale and Yo Gotti.
The show also featured some of Wild N Out’s hottest talent, including DC Young Fly, RIP Michaels, Conceited, Justina Valentine, Chico Beans, Matt Rife, Karlous Miller, Hitman Holla, and Emanuel Hudson.
If attendees thought the show would be an identical dupe of what we see on MTV, they were definitely in for a surprise. In D.C., seating was concert style, versus the normal dinner style seating shown on television. Additionally, attendees enjoyed stand up performances by Emanuel Hudson and DC Young Fly, two of the most popular comedians on the show. Their performances truly stole the show with jokes about relationships, racism, and even Donald Trump, as they kept the crowd in constant laughter.
After the stand up performances, things got a bit more familiar as the entire cast joined together on stage to do their infamous rap battle games, inviting fans from the crowd to flame each other with their freestyle skills.
After the show, when asked why he decided to take Wild N Out on the road, Nick’s answer was simple, “The people demanded it … We’re going to go even bigger next year.”
Naturally, the hardest working man in Hollywood hopped right on a flight to Haiti to help care for orphans during the holidays shortly after the show.
By the way, unfortunately you won’t get a cameo by attending the live show, as it isn’t being filmed for television. But let’s face it, the hardcore jokes everyone loves and can relate to are worth it. If you missed out on a tour stop, don’t worry! Additional cities will be announced.
