It's Showtime For Nick Cannon's Stand-Up Routine
April 14, 2011 at 4:53 PM (PT)
CBS RADIO Top 40/Mainstream WXRK (92.3 NOW)/NEW YORK morning host NICK CANNON is going back to his roots -- as a stand-up comedian. THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER reports that the husband of a pregnant MARIAH CAREY had his first stand-up special taped for SHOWTIME; NICK CANNON: MR. SHOWBIZ will premiere on SUNDAY, MAY 14th at 9p.
"People forget that I started out doing stand-up," CANNON said. "I’m actually going back to my roots. I’m a comic at heart. I see stand-up as a therapeutic outlet to say whatever I want. When you’re up there on stage, it’s no holds barred. You don’t have to be politically correct. All the pressure is gone. It’s just you and the microphone."
The special for SHOWTIME follows CANNON’s first foray as host of a nationally syndicated weekend show -- Cannon’s Countdown -- beginning APRIL 23rd.
