He walks into a room and the atmosphere immediately changes. Awed by his immodest warmth and sex appeal, the conversation lowers to buzz, the barometric pressure rises and the air grows thick with anticipation and want.
Kevin Hart is electrifying. Stardom radiates from him like a New York billboard as he lights up the stage and side swaps his audience with his unique comedic humor.
Undaunted by his chances of being accepted on the “tough” comedy circuit, Kevin debuted on amateur night at a Philadelphia comedy club. The audience welcomed him into their hearts and Hart was hooked. Kevin quit his job as a shoe salesman for an athletic shoe store chain and began chasing his dream of becoming a star. Comedy swims through his bloodstream right along side red and white cells.
Kevin began performing full time at clubs such as the Boston Comedy Club, Caroline's, Stand-Up NY, The Improvisation, The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. He expanded his reach world wide, performing at comedy clubs in both Amsterdam and London. But it was his performance at the Montreal Comedy Festival which led to his work in feature films such as Paper Soldiers (2002), Scary Movie 3 (2003 where he wrote his own part)) and Along Came Polly (2004).
In 2004 Hart executive-produced, wrote and starred in the ABC-TV sitcom The Big House, which debuted April 2, 2004 and was loosely based on his family in Philadelphia. His other television appearances include a month long stint on Love, Inc., the 25 Best Bodies on BET, Showtime series, Barbershop and MTV’s Wild ’n' Out with Nick Cannon.
His biggest break came when landed the lead role in Soul Plane which flew him onto the big screen. He has since landed roles in Scary Movie 4, In the Mix, and The 40 Year Old Virgin.
Kevin has the uncanny ability to flip the proverbial script and integrate his comedic routines to fit the audience. Whether he is entertaining a group of bank presidents at a charity fund-raiser for the United Way or screaming and shouting over a college rock band, he always leaves his audience feeling satisfied and wanting more.
Today Kevin is the national headliner for all The Improvisation Comedy Clubs and will be featured on the upcoming segment of Def Comedy Jam. He also has several new films coming up over the next year – Fool’s Gold starring opposite Matthew Mcconaughey & Kate Hudson, Starship Dave with Eddie Murphy & Gabriel Union, Parental Guidance, the Last Stand, featuring Anthony Anderson and Guy Torry, and Bob Bailey’s Disco Ball. While stand up continues to be his first love, he continues to work towards advancing his acting and writing careers.
For the last Three (3) years, he has also been a headlining comedian on the RJE Comedy Cabaret Tour, WWW.COMEDIANDEPOT.COM, which is the longest running, largest and most successful comedy tour in the nation targeted to Universities/ Colleges.
