After nine seasons, NBC executives have threatened to fire the host of America’s Got Talent, Nick Cannon because of his upcoming special “Stand Up, Don’t Shoot,” airing tonight in Showtime 9 ET/PT.
The host has fallen into boiling water over the contents of his hour special. NBC deemed the material is too controversial and is ready to part ways with the host if he does not pull the plug on the special at the 11th hour.
The network is afraid of push back and this could cost Nick Cannon his two hosting jobs on America’s Got talent and Caught on Camera both airs on NBC.
As the controversy escalates, Nick Cannon is a firm believer of free-speech and has weathered recent criticism for voicing his opinion on XXL.
NICK CANNON, 35 years old, is a successful, multi-faceted entertainer: comedian, TV executive producer and host, film star/director, consumer electronics entrepreneur, philanthropist and children’s book author. Cited by People Magazine as one of the “Top 10 Most Successful Young People in Hollywood,” Cannon proves focus and hard work pays off.
A San Diego native, Cannon began performing at the age of 8 after his grandfather left him several instruments as a gift. Shortly after, Cannon took the stage to perform his music along with stand-up comedy. Eventually, Cannon headed for Hollywood at the age of 15 and landed gigs at world-renowned comedy venues including The Improv, The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store. Cannon went on to share the stage with the likes of Chris Tucker, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock before landing his first television gig as a series regular and writer on Nickelodeon’s long-running hit series All That, making him the youngest staff writer in television history. This path culminated in the creation of The Nick Cannon Show, which he starred in, directed and executive produced.
