Nick Cannon is known for more than being superstar Mariah Carey's ex-husband. The comedian (MTV's "Wild 'N Out Live"), TV host ("America's Got Talent," "The Masked Singer"), and actor will bring his "Nick Cannon & Friends" tour to the Rochester stage this weekend. The show includes improv and comedy with the spirit of a hip-hop throwdown, and Cannon's featured friends are Rip Micheals, Hitman Holla, Conceited, Justina Valentine, Iamzoie, Charlie Clips, Emmanuel Hudson, DJ D-Wrek, surprise musical performances, and some local comedians (TBA at the show). The performance is family friendly, but parents, use your judgment when bringing the littles.
Saturday, May 4, at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.). Blue Cross Arena, 100 Exchange Boulevard. $30-$150. bluecrossarena.com.
