Kevin Hart is easily the hardest working comedian at the moment as he continues to put out multiple movies a year and reign on BET with “Real Husbands of Hollywood.” But now he’s expected to rack in millions with his latest comedy tour.

Interestingly enough, he’s also expected to make history too.

Billboard writes:

Kevin Hart is an enormously popular comedian, with hit movies, albums and television appearances, a huge fan base and global name recognition. Yet it may come as a surprise to learn that his upcoming What Now? tour, which begins April 9 in Texas, is on track to become the highest grossing comedy tour ever reported to Billboard Boxscore, selling more than 600,000 tickets and grossing $35 million to date — and it’s only March.

In New York alone, Hart quickly sold out two shows at Madison Square Garden, along with Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. — a trio of metro-area plays that only the most confident pop or rock stars would even attempt (and he’s already booked a fourth area venue in Wantagh, N.Y. for August 28). To top it off, Hart, 35, will wrap the tour at Lincoln Financial Field in his hometown of Philadelphia on Aug. 30 — making him the first comedian ever to headline a stadium.


Congrats to Kevin.


  1. I don’t find him all that funny but I respect his grind. He works hard and deserves his success.

  2. Say what you want about Kev, but he has his eye on the prize and always has. In my opinion, he’s refreshingly hilarious and I’m excited to see him!
