Nick Cannon


Nick Cannon was born in San Diego, Ca on October 17, 1980.

He always wanted to be the comedian and drove his family crazy with impressions of Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson. His father encouraged him to write down his comedy routines and do talent shows. Nick did the local comedy circuit in Los Angeles at clubs like The Improv, The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store. He was even booed when he kept using the same routines that he did as a 12 year old at the age of 15.

He took a break from comedy and got a role on Soul Train as one of the dancers. He even did the Soul Train Scramble Board.

He was even fired from a popular food chain for talking too much to the customers.

Finally Nickelodeon came along and Nick's career got a huge boost. He was the warm up act for the series All That. He was later added to the cast of the show and introduced the character of Latanya to the public.

His popularity grew and he ended up hosting Snick House and In Concert on TEENick. He even introduced the music videos on various shows. He holds the record for appearing in almost even live action Nickelodeon series except for Blues Clues and Are You Afraid of the Dark.

He also became script writer for Kenan & Kel and Cousin Skeeter. Which help prave the way for writing on his own series, The Nick Cannon Show.

He has his own group called the Da Bomb Squad that performed on In Concert with Aaron Carter and Mandy Moore. They planned on releasing a CD in the near future. It never happened.

He appears on the soundtrack of the Nick movie-Jimmy Neutron and appears in the movie Snow Day.

He filmed a pilot called Loose Cannon, produced by Will Smith for the Warner's Brothers network. It wasn't picked up and Nickelodeon offered him his own show. The Nick Cannon Show, a hybrid version of Keenan and Kel. The show ended after two years because Nick's workload prevented him from doing the show.

After a cameo in Men in Black 2, he started working on his album that would feature B2K and the rapist R. Kelly. It was held back six different times before coming out 12-9-03. He also filmed Love Don't Cost A Thing with Steve Harvey and his now former girlfriend Christina Milan (sings the Kim Possible them song). His next role was Louis in Garfield: The Movie.

He follwed that up with Shall We Dance and the first movie that he wrote and produced The Underclassman. The movie was released with little fanfare as it was Disney's way of clearing out Miramax's unreleased films.
