Chico Bean

Sept 24 - Sept 25
$55

Chico Bean, who has been born and brought up in Washington, DC, first began performing standup comedy over a decade ago in 2007 in Greensboro, North Carolina, a place which he thinks is not a hotbed of comedic talent. He gained recognition following a successful stint as an opener to comedian Chris Wiles. As his popularity grew, he collaborated with two other comedians in 2009 – B-Daht and Darren Brand – to form the comedy group 'Freestyle Funny Comedy Show'. The group was later joined by DeMar 'OsamaBinDrankin' Rankin, Sr. They went on to perform stand-up comedy at various comedy clubs, colleges, and universities.

Chico Bean received a big break when Nick Cannon, learning about his comedy performances in North Carolina, flew him in to Gotham Comedy Club to participate in a set for his 'Fresh Faces of Comedy' stand-up show in 2011. Interestingly, once he reached the club, he was told that he needed to follow certain guidelines for his performance, which included that he omit curse words from his skit. He had to go outside and spend a lot of time re-doing a huge portion of his set. Cannon happened to witness him talking to himself outside of the club, and following his performance realized that he just prepared and performed an improvised set on such a short notice.

Nick Cannon was very impressed by Chico Bean’s spontaneity, stating that many celebrated comedians were not so gifted, and encouraged him to keep pushing. He came back home and resumed performing with his group. Shortly after Bean learned about the next series of 'Wild 'N Out' on Twitter, Cannon came down to Charlotte, North Carolina, where Bean auditioned in front of him before being flown in to New York to audition once again before people in charge of the MTV show. Chico Bean was then flown back again for a group audition, but he successfully passed all three auditions to be on the MTV show. He has been on the show ever since, and has made a name for himself amongst renowned comedians. One of the most popular cast members, he was named the 'Most Valuable Player' after filming for Season 9 was concluded.
