ABOUT LAST NIGHT
KEVIN HART (Bernie) 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
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. Hart quit his shoe salesman job and began performing full-time at
such venues as The Boston Comedy Club, Caroline's on Broadway, 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 Hart into
roles in feature films such as Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3 and Along Came
Polly, which starred Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston.
Hart has worked nonstop ever since, bursting onto the scene as one of the
most versatile comedy actors in film and television, and 2013 has been no
exception. While having already completed filming Warner Bros.' Grudge Match,
opposite Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro, and Screen Gems' Think Like a
Man Too, the sequel to its enormously successful predecessor, Hart released a
feature version of his comedy show Let Me Explain, which has already grossed $28
million. His hit series, Real Husbands of Hollywood, had its season two debut
in the fall, and he began filming The Wedding Ringer, opposite Josh Gad, in
Hart remained busy in 2012, hosting the MTV Video Music Awards, garnering
much industry praise for his performance, before his comedy tour, Let Me
Explain, took him to 90 U.S. cities, along with Europe and Africa. On his Let
Me Explain tour, Hart became the second American in history to sell out London's
In fall 2012, Hart filmed two movies back to back: Ride Along and About Last
Night. He continued his incredible run with a starring role in Screen Gems'
Think Like a Man, a comedy based on Steve Harvey's best-selling book, which
grossed $95 million worldwide, and had a supporting role in Nick Stoller's
comedy The Five-Year Engagement, produced by Judd Apatow for Universal Pictures.
In September 2011, Hart released Laugh at My Pain, the feature film version
of his comedy tour of the same name. The movie grossed more than $7 million and
was 2011's most successful film released in fewer than 300 theaters. The Laugh
at My Pain tour was so successful, it catapulted Hart to 2011's No. 1 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 led
to the Laugh at My Pain DVD hitting double platinum in February 2012, after
being on sale for only a month.
Hart's previous film credits include Little Fockers, which starred Robert De
Niro and Ben Stiller, Death at a Funeral, Fool's Gold and The 40-Year-Old
In 2009, Hart's one-hour Comedy Central special, Kevin Hart: I'm a Grown
Little Man, became one of the highest-rated specials for the network. In 2010,
Hart's 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
year's highest-rated comedy special.
Hart's additional television credits include hosting BET's classic stand-up
comedy series Comic View: One Mic Stand; a starring role on 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.
