• Kevin Hart is fine; announces Netflix stand-up special

    Kevin Hart will release his first Netflix original stand-up special on Tuesday, April 2. On Instagram, Hart told his followers, “Mark your calendars damn it.”

    Fresh off of not-hosting this year’s Oscars, titled Kevin Hart: Irresponsible, will feature the comic joking about his “friends, family, travel…and a year filled with irresponsible behavior.” The hour-long special was taped during the Irresponsible Tour’s sold-out stop in London.

    As we all know by now, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences tapped Hart to host this year’s Oscars back in December. Days later, people dug up controversial tweets and the Night School star stepped down despite an apology made on Ellen. The hostless Oscars did…what it did.

    Kevin Hart keeps on Kevin Hart-ing with new projects

    Hart toured extensively throughout the United States for his 2017-2018 Irresponsible Tour. He also made stops in Australia and a few other international locations, including three nights at London’s O2 Arena.

    Irresponsible is Hart’s first special since his stand-up concert film What Now? debuted in movie theaters in 2016. The corresponding comedy album was nominated for a Grammy for Best Comedy Album.

    After multiple scandals, some of Hart’s recent projects have taken a more family-friendly tone. During Black History Month, Hart released Kevin Hart’s Guide to Black History on Netflix. That hour-long special included reenactments aimed at kids and families. Hart will star in the upcoming kids flick The Secret Life of Pets 2, the new Jumanji sequel, and even a live-action Monopoly movie. However, the new show he is executive producing for FX based on the life of rapper and comic Lil Dicky will probably be decidedly un-family friendly. However, his new show at FX—based on the life of rapper-comedian Lil Dicky—will be decidedly less family-friendly.
