Movies & TV

MTV’s Wild ‘N Out cast members James Davis and Lauren Flans sat down with VIBE to talk sketch and improv comedy.

The season 5 premiere of Wild ‘N Out hit 1.1 million viewers making it the highest rated show in MTV2 history. The Nick Cannon-hosted hip-hop sketch comedy show returned to the MTV sister channel this July after a six year hiatus.

“Improv is important because, it supports people being themselves and getting out of their own head, and accepting what life gives you, accepting what people give you,” says James Davis. “One of the main rules in improv is not to deny somebody when they come at you with any information; that’s just a way to live life, bad or good if something comes along accept it.”
