One of the things comedian Kevin Hart wants to get straight in his new stand up film Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, is that he's no LAB (Local-Ass-Bitch). And he goes about proving it with footage from sold out concerts in London, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Amsterdam. Then takes to the stage selling out Madison Square Garden for two nights to explain some more. It's true, Kevin's no LAB, but we are happy to claim him as a local Philly boy who's really blown up!!!
My brother introduced me to this comedic diminutive, dynamo back in 06, with his first special "I'm a Grown Little Man" we watched that bootleg several times, laughing hysterically at the story where Kevin and a friend piss off an ostrich with a pen. Alright alright alright. You're gonna learn today! became a catch phrase from his 2011 special "Laugh At My Pain", where Hart talks about his coke addicted father stumbling into his spelling bee, wearing sweatpants with no underwear - just swinging in the breeze.
The trick of a good comedian is to make the worst sh** funny. Hart's now been through a divorce, which he admits ended mostly due to his cheating, he's anticipating despising his kids eventual step-father, he was held at gun point, and fears the possibility of a bum bump, all of it delivered with side splitting, stupid, hilarity in this latest special.
Kevin Hart was also in Think Like a Man, Exit Strategy, The Five-Year Engagement & This is The End click links for Tinsel & Tine posts on these movies.
