Kevin Hart used to stop beating from his mother when he was a kid with the best defense he ever possesses, the comedy! She couldn’t hold her laughter when the boy defends her with some hilarious number. The iconic stand-up comedian Kevin Heart went on to become the new sensation among stand-up comedians with his 2011 stand-up comedy documentary ‘Laugh at My Pain.’
After finishing the short stint with Nike as a shoe salesman, Kevin chose comedy as his life and moved on as a full-time comedian. With the help of his mentor, veteran comedian, Keith Robinson, Kevin worked on his skills through several competitions and shows. He shaped up a personal style inspired by the work of African American comedians like Bill Cosby, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, and Eddie Murphy.
Comedies like ‘Think Like a Man (2012),’ ‘About Last Night (2014)’ and ‘Get Hard (2015)’ made him a popular face in Hollywood. The ABC comedy Series ‘Modern Family,’ ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’ and ‘Workaholics’ raised his popularity among TV viewers. Hart tasted sour when his gig as the host at the Oscars aborted. Within two days after being named as the host, Hart stepped back when his old tweets of homophobic slander made public. Nevertheless, the controversy didn’t touch the comedian’s prolific career. He bounced back with a deal for two comedy movies with STXfilms.
At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Kevin Hart movie? Well, you are at the right place.
