Nick Cannon nearly lost his job at the “America’s Got Talent” show when he made a “black card” joke while at a stand up comedy special according to reports by TMZ.
During a comedy special a month back, Nick joked about NBC making him lose his “black card” style which meant that the network wanted him to show less swagger on ‘AGT.’
This totally pissed off the NBC executives who nearly fired Cannon for it. Sources state that the executives found out about the incident when Nick was promoting the special on “The Howard Stern Show“.

This was seen as a violation of his contract to the network and reports also claim that the deal Nick has with NBC bars him from talking about the network without approval.
Nick was a minute away from being axed but the executives decided to keep him since they see him as a valuable asset to their show.
