About Wild ‘n Out
Wild ‘n Out basically puts two teams of comedians against each other in a series of improvisational comedy games. The teams play under names such as the “Red Squad”, which later became the “Platinum Squad”, and the “Black Squad”. The Platinum Squad is led by Cannon himself, while the Black Squad was led by a celebrity guest as of season 7. The situation was reversed for season 8, with Cannon becoming the captain of the Black Squad and the guest star leading the Platinum Squad. However, the original order was restored by season 9.
After three games, the two teams basically square off against one another in the final round of the game that is called “WildStyle”. In this round, both teams must deliver a punch line with a freestyle rap, directed at the team members from the opposing team. Most of the jokes are of an impersonal nature, while some settle personal “beef” with the opponents. The format of the show is quite similar to ComedySportz.
Each episode of the show also involves a musical performance. This typically happens right before the Wild Style round begins.
