WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Two Winston-Salem State University graduates, Anthony “Chico” Bean and Brian “B-Daht” McLaughlin, are appearing regularly on MTV2’s “Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out,” according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

The improvisational comedy show airs at 11 p.m. on Wednesdays. The shows were taped in New York City earlier this year.

“Wild ‘N Out” is in its sixth season. This is Bean’s second season with the show. McLaughlin made his first appearance Wednesday. He is also the interim host on WJMH 102 Jamz Morning Show.

McLaughlin was let go last month as the public address announcer for WSSU sports teams after he made anti-gay remarks on Twitter. He has since apologized.

Bean and McLaughlin are also part of the Freestyle Funny Comedy Show (#FFCS), a Greensboro-based improve comedy troupe that performs in clubs and at colleges. Other members of #FFCS are Darren “Big Baby” Bran, and Demar “Osama Bin Drankin” Rankin, both alumni of N.C. A&T State University.

The #FFCS is performing live locally — 8 p.m. Sunday at The Comedy Zone in Greensboro.

    Wow! Do you think that a nice thing to say? Are you hating? That was it sounds like to me. You all make your racial remarks on here because you will not confront them. The bible says the last shall be first & the first shall be last. Will you be ready? Think about…..
