Nick Cannon



Nick has always been interested in entertaining and making people laugh. In fact, he used to drive his family a little crazy with all his wacky antics. "I would be silly around my house," says Nick. "I would try to do Bill Cosby impressions and Michael Jackson and stuff like that-- My dad was like, 'Instead of acting silly and trying to be a rapper all the time, why don't you sit down and write [out] some comedy routines and perform them?" Ever the obedient son, Nick put pen to paper and his father was happy to discover that the routine he wrote was pretty darn good. "Then I started doing talent shows and stuff with me doing stand-up," says Nick. "It kinda evolved from there."

While Nick became pretty popular on the Los Angeles stand-up circuit and performed at clubs like The Improv, The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store, he wasn't immune to tough nights on stage. "I had taken a break from doing stand-up for about a year because I really wanted to focus on [rapping] and then, when I was about 15, I got back into it," says Nick. "I went on stage and I tried to do the same material from when I was 12 years old, and I was way older, so it wasn't as cute as it was when I was 12. I started doing those jokes, and people started booing and stuff." Ouch! Nick was pretty devastated by that experience, and, for a moment, vowed never to do stand-up again. "Then, the next week, I was just like, 'I've gotta do it. I'm not a quitter. I've gotta keep going, and I gotta make it happen.' I went up there the next week with some new jokes and just ripped it up. I think I got a standing ovation that night." See kids, bravery and perseverance really do pay off!
