In his first-ever comedy special, the popular comic actor and musician reveals surprisingly edgy, hysterically honest tales of his failed attempts at being a gangster, his humble roots, marriage, fatherhood and his thoughts about the rapper Eminem. Shot at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It's virtually impossible not to like Nick Cannon. If you are, however, someone that does not have an affinity for this self-proclaimed Mr Showbiz--I would probably stay clear of the Showtime produced special by that name. Cannon, so genial and engaging, mines a lot of material from his real life. From his difficult beginnings to his rise through the entertainment industry to his powerhouse coupling with Mariah Carey, Cannon makes the most of his celebrity status. While the "Mr. Showbiz" label is affixed with a wink and a nod (I hope), it is clear that this special (and its corresponding comedy CD) exist for the primary purpose of illustrating Cannon's awesomeness. Clearly, Cannon is one of his own biggest fans and his set alternates between being self-deprecating and self-congratulatory. While Cannon is obviously having a grand old time, his enthusiasm is certainly infectious.

But truth be told, as much as you may want to root for Cannon, this concert set is easily more likable than it is laugh-out-loud funny. Some of the specific material seems a bit obvious--a riff on Kanye West, casual jokes on homophobia, racial differences--it's all been done frequently. The jokes may be amusing, but are rarely uproarious. And when he tries to venture into edgier fare, it doesn't always sit comfortably in the routine. What are we left with then? Cannon and his persona--how great it is to be rich, successful, and married to Carey. Most of the concert plays as Cannon reveling in being Cannon as he seeks audience approval for how terrific he is. Seriously, without Carey (he even references the Carey/Eminem showdown), this might have seemed a very generic piece.

And yet, I like Cannon. And your reaction to this presentation will directly be related to how much you like him as well.

At first I hated Nick Cannon. I thought he was one of those "Hey look at me, I'm hilarious" types when he first opened up for America's Got Talent several years ago, but I've grown to really admire the man and find him to be an insanely likeable personality on TV. I admit I was wrong with my first impression and will freely admit it right here. However this particular comedy routine leaves a lot to be desired. He's better than this and he knows it, and I believe everyone else knows it too. Stooping to mentioning his love for Mariah Carey and basically bragging about it, and frequently making jokes intended for edginess and cheap laughs get old after a while. That's the main problem I have with this performance.

I generally love Nick Cannon and always find him likeable in his interviews and other tv/entertainment snippets (I also think he is a talented entertainer/actor/singer/rapper/lyricist just to name a few hats he wears), but I found this show to be alienating. I subscribe to the notion that one can find truth in comedy...however, (a big HOWEVER) this comedy seemed a little bitter to me; it felt like a case of sour grapes (to put it lightly).
Myself, I often feel justified and bitter toward the northeast region of the U.S. because I grew up in the south and am living in the northeast region now and people constantly make fun of Southerners in the northeast and hold Southerners back from educational and professional opportunities. [Just to let you know my demographic info: I am a white (caucasian to Nick)female in my mid 30's. I am also a Lamb and belong to the Lambily.] So, I feel like I can understand Cannon's perspective a teeny bit...if I stretch it.
So, I am disappointed in his show because I feel like it was more of a mockery of the white/Caucasian couple in the front row, a chance for him to let everyone know he's married to Mariah Carey in case anyone didn't know, and to let everyone know that he hates white people for being born white...and that he also treats them significantly different than other folk.
