KEVIN HART

If there’s one thing Kevin Hart can do, it’s sell shoes.  If there’s one thing Kevin Hart can do better than sell shoes, it’s explode into one of the foremost comedians and entertainers in the industry today.

Hart has continued to work non-stop and in 2015 Kevin will be seen in two movies and on the road for his What Now Comedy tour. Kevin can currently be seen in Screen Gem’s The Wedding Ringer. In March Kevin stars in Get Hard, opposite Will Farrell. In 2016 Kevin can be seen in the much anticipated Ride Along 2, the sequel to last year’s one-hundred-million-dollar blockbuster hit of the same name. The consummate worker, Hart is a force in television too, Executive Producing the show, Real Husbands of Hollywood which premiered its third season in September.

Kevin’s work ethic translate into big numbers as well for studios, as his movies for Screen Gems alone have now grossed a quarter of a billion dollars worldwide with budgets of under $75 million. Proving this is no fluke, Hart’s determination and success is simply a roll-over from a banner 2013 and ‘14 where he starred in Grudge Match for Warner Brothers, opposite Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro, About Last Night, the Chris Rock directed Top Five and Think Like a Man Too, the sequel to its enormously successful predecessor, for Screen Gems. Kevin also released a feature version of his comedy show Let Me Explain.

Hart began his career sizing men and women for footwear, when a chance, electrifying performance at amateur night in a Philadelphia comedy club changed his life. Kevin quit his shoe salesman job and began performing full time at such venues as The Boston Comedy Club, Caroline’s, Stand-Up NY, The Laugh Factory, and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. However, it was his first appearance at the “Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival” that led Kevin into roles in feature films such as Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3, and Along Came Polly opposite Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston.

In 2012, Hart was tapped to host the 2012 MTV VMA’s, garnering much industry praise for his appearance, before his next comedy tour, “Let Me Explain” took him to 90 American cities along with Europe and Africa. Records have not withstood under his LME tour either, as Kevin became only the second American in history to sell out London’s O2 Arena. Kevin spent the fall of 2012 filming two movies back to back: Screen Gem’s re-make of Sexual Perversity titled About Last Night, and Universal’s buddy Cop movie Ride Along, opposite Ice Cube. Kevin continued his incredible run with a starring role in Screen Gem’s Think Like A Man, a comedy based on Steve Harvey’s bestselling book, which grossed $95 Million worldwide, and had a supporting role in the Universal, Nick Stoller comedy, Five Year Engagement, produced by Judd Apatow.

In September, 2011 Hart released “Laugh At My Pain,” the feature film version of his comedy tour (under the same name). The movie grossed over $7 million, and was 2011’s most successful film of those released in less than 300 theaters.  The LAMP tour was so successful, it catapulted Hart to 2011’s number one comedian on Ticketmaster, and in February, 2011, he sold out the Nokia Theater for two nights in a row, breaking the record previously set by Eddie Murphy. This lead to the LAMP DVD hitting double platinum in February 2012, after being on sale for only a month.

Hart’s previous film credits include Little Fockers with Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller, Death at a Funeral, Fool’s Gold and The 40 Year Old Virgin.

In 2009, Hart’s one-hour Comedy Central special I’m A Grown Little Man became one of the highest rated specials for the network, and in 2010, Hart’s DVD Seriously…Funny was one of the fastest selling DVDs, going triple Platinum, aided by and the Comedy Central special of the same name, which was the highest rated comedy special of 2010.

Hart’s other television credits include, hosting BET’s classic stand-up comedy series Comic View: One Mic Stand, ABC’s The Big House, which he also executive produced and wrote, and recurring roles on Love, Inc, Barbershop, and Undeclared.

With his passion for stand-up and entertainment, Hart continues to tour the country to sold-out audiences.

Hart currently lives in Los Angeles with his family.
