Similar in premise to game-type shows such as Whose Line Is It Anyway?, the show pits two teams of comedians: the "Red Squad", captained by Cannon and contained Katt Williams for the first 3 seasons, and the "Black Squad" led by a celebrity guest, against each other in a series of improvisational comedy games. After three such games, the two teams square off against each other in the final round of the game called Wild Style, in which they must insult the other team member(s) within a freestyle rap. The comedians "beef" with each other, however some are impersonal jokes. Although, similar to Whose Line, the "points don't matter", the teams score one point per round victory during the normal rounds, plus one point per favorably judged punchline during Wild Style. Each episode also includes a musical performance, occasionally by the guest captain for the Black Squad. At times, the musical guest comes out just before Wild Style as the judge for the beefs.
The first episode sets up the whole season. The start off the show by playing “The Questions Game” from where the Black and Red team can only ask each other questions. Orlando Jones comes up with a funny question, “Did Yo Mamma... More
The first episode sets up the whole season. The start off the show by playing “The Questions Game” from where the Black and Red team can only ask each other questions. Orlando Jones comes up with a funny question, “Did Yo Mamma tell you?”, and wins it for the Black Team. The second game they play is “Tore up from the Floor Up”. They bring people out of the audience that they think look funny and make fun of them. During this game Robert Hoffman strips nearly all the way down, leaving his underwear and his long, white, grey-on-the-tip socks. Robert Hoffman seems to love being in his socks, and leaves his shoes off for a while. Hoffman's team wins that round. The 3rd game is a game called “I’m On the List!”, wherein the Black Team and the Red Team have to act out celebrity personalities and the team captains have to figure out who the impression is of, then let that "celebrity" into the club. The Red Team wins the 3rd game. And the last game is called “Wild Style”. The cast has to go head to head free styling each other and making punch lines. Who ever is the funniest wins the whole game. The Red Team Wins the whole thing! Cassidy comes through and plays "I'm A Hustla" from his album 'I'm A Hustla"
