Kevin Hart has burst onto the scene as one of the most versatile comedy actors in film and television. After a knock-out performance on amateur night at a Philadelphia comedy club, Hart quit his job as a shoe salesman to make a career from his sense of humor. Since then, his success has been inevitable. He began doing stand-up at various clubs in Boston, New York and Los Angeles which eventually lead to his extremely memorable first performance at the Montreal “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival. By this time, Hart was on the map and appearing in films such as “Paper Soldiers,” “Scary Movie 3″ and “Along Came Polly.”
In January 2009, Hart premiered his new one-hour comedy special “I’m a Grown Little Man” on COMEDY CENTRAL. He has most recently been seen in “Death at a Funeral,” a remake of the 2007 British movie of the same name, along with Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan and Martin Lawrence. He also co-starred with Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson in “Fool’s Gold,” as well as opposite Steve Carell in “The 40 Year Old Virgin.” His biggest break came when he landed the lead in MGM’s “Soul Plane” opposite Tom Arnold, Method Man and Snoop Dogg. Hart’s recent film credits include “Not Easily Broken,” “Extreme Movie,” “Drillbit Taylor,” “Epic Movie,” “The Last Stand,” “Scary Movie 4″ and “In the Mix.” Previously, Hart was seen on the big screen in the FOX comedy “Meet Dave” opposite Eddie Murphy and in Dimension Film’s action comedy spoof Superhero Movie opposite Tracy Morgan and Regina Hall. Also, he’ll soon be seen in the “Meet the Fockers” sequel set to be released December 2010.
