Kevin Hart Career
Hart got into comedy after performing at an amateur night at a club in the Philadelphia area. His first performance was at Philadelphia’s The Laff House. He was not an overnight success. In fact, Hart was repeatedly booed off the stage. At the time, he was attempting to impersonate other comedians, especially Chris Tucker. He eventually recognized that wasn’t working and changed his act.
Hart launched his “I’m a Grown Little Man” comedy tour in 2009, followed by “Seriously Funny” in 2010, “Laugh at My Pain” in 2011, and “Let Me Explain” in 2013. The last two were also released in theatres as feature films.
Hart began his “What Now?” Tour in Texas in April 2015. Universal Pictures announced in July of that year that “Kevin Hart: What Now?” would be released theatrically on October 14, 2016.
Hart’s breakthrough came after he performed “I’m a Grown Little Man” and “Seriously Funny” on Comedy Central. From there, he landed roles in films such as “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Soul Plane,” and “Little Fockers,” and gained greater fame.
Kevin has appeared in scores of films and television shows since then, all while maintaining one of the busiest national comedy touring schedules in the business. His films have earned more than $1.3 billion at the global box office as of this writing. “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” (with a 2019 Jumanji sequel), “The Secret Life of Pets” (also with a 2019 sequel), and “Central Intelligence” are other significant films.
From 2003 through 2010, Kevin married Torrei Hart, a fellow comedian. They had two children together but eventually divorced. Hart sought shared custody of their two children, Heaven Leigh (born in 2005) and Hendrix (born in 2007). In November 2011, the divorce was finalized.
Hart and Eniko Parrish married on August 13, 2016, in Santa Barbara, California. Kenzo Kash, their son, was born in November 2017. Hart confesses to cheating on Eniko while she was pregnant a month after Kenzo was born. Kaori Mai, their daughter, was born in September 2020.
Kevin has indicated in his stand-up routine that he has a strained connection with his father. For many years, his father, Henry Witherspoon, was a severe cocaine user, which strained their relationship and Kevin’s childhood.
Throughout his childhood, his father was in and out of prison. Kevin developed his sense of humor as a coping mechanism to divert his family’s attention away from their addicted father’s hardships and tribulations. In the act, he speaks warmly of his mother, but she died of cancer in 2006.
Hart failed a field sobriety test in April 2013 after his car nearly collided with a tanker truck on a Los Angeles motorway. He was charged with misdemeanor DUI. He was sentenced to three years probation in August of that year.
Kevin was involved in an automobile accident in August 2019 that resulted in significant injuries. Kevin was a passenger when a friend drove a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda into a ditch on a Malibu road.
