KEVIN HART (Dante Slate, Jr.) is one of the hottest comedians and entertainers
in the industry today. He began his career with an electrifying performance at
amateur night in a Philadelphia comedy club, and quickly started 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 him into
roles in such feature films as "Paper Soldiers," "Scary Movie 3," and "Along
Came Polly," opposite Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston.
Hart has worked non-stop ever since, bursting onto the scene as one of the most
versatile comedy actors in film and television. He released a feature version of
his comedy show "Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain," which has already grossed $28
million. He also has a hit reality series, "Real Husbands of Hollywood," which
premiered in the fall.
Hart hosted the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, 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. During this tour, Hart became
only the second American in history to sell out London's O2 Arena.
He spent the fall of 2012 filming two movies back to back: the upcoming re-make
of "About Last Night" and a buddy cop movie, "Ride Along," opposite Ice Cube.
Hart continued his incredible run with a starring role in "Think Like a Man," a
comedy based on Steve Harvey's bestselling book, which grossed $95 million
worldwide and spawned a sequel due out this summer. He also had a supporting
role in the Nick Stoller comedy "Five Year Engagement," produced by Judd Apatow.
previous film credits include "Little Fockers," with Robert DeNiro and Ben
Stiller, "Death at a Funeral," "Fool's Gold" and Apatow's "The 40-Year-Old
In 2011, Hart released "Laugh at My Pain," the feature film version of his
comedy tour of the same name. The movie grossed over $7 million and was that
year's most successful film of those released in fewer 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 in Los
Angeles for two nights in a row, breaking the record previously set by Eddie
Murphy. This led to the DVD hitting double platinum in February 2012, after
being on sale for only a month.
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 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"
With his passion for stand-up and entertainment, Hart continues to tour the
country to sold-out audiences.
