RIDE ALONG

If there's one thing KEVIN HART (Ben Barber) 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 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 starred in Warner Bros.' Grudge Match, opposite Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro, and completed filming for 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 September.

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 O2 Arena.

In fall 2012, Hart filmed two movies back to back: Ride Along and Screen Gems' remake of 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 Nicholas 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 DeNiro and Stiller, Death at a Funeral, Fool's Gold and The 40-Year- Old Virgin.

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.
