Cannon is now looking to audition and cast new talent via his website.
During the four seasons of Wild 'n Out, which starred and was created by Cannon, the show featured an impressive list of celebrity guests including Serena Williams, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Wayne Brady and Cedric the Entertainer. The show’s original cast members Kevin Hart, Katt Williams and Affion Crockett are among the who’s who of the hottest comedians on the scene now.
In addition to Wild 'n Out, Cannon continues to juggle his hosting duties on America’s Got Talent, his post as chairman of Teen Nick at Nickelodeon and his starring role on the upcoming BET series The Real Husbands of Hollywood.
