Short people don’t always have it easy as they always picked on based on by virtue of their height but while this man may not be the tallest in any gathering, his talent and reputation definitely matches the height of a skyscraper. Kevin Darnell Hart was born on the 6th of July, 1979. Kevin has definitely become a household name in the Hollywood and in the comedy industry. Here’s how it began.
He had his first gig at The Laff House in Philadelphia under the name of Lil Kev (well, he was little really) which did not go well. His career didn’t take off immediately as he was booed off stage several times but our diminutive comedian would not be deterred. He started putting in for competitions throughout Massachusetts and his fortunes would soon turn around for the better.
It definitely took time for Kevin to breakthrough and developed his own unique comedy style and skillset. In 2009, Hart’s comedy tours kicked off with his act titled “I’m a Grown Little Man” and in 2010, he followed in up with another act titled “Seriously Funny”. In 2011, “Laugh at My Pain” hit the audience and it sure left a lasting impression as it over 15 million dollars and it made that year memorable for a man who would no longer be called little. “Let Me Explain” came out in 2013 as a feature in movie theatres. On April 2015, Hart embarked on a comedy world tour titled the What Now? Tour at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, which came to an end on the 7th of August, 2016. Kevin had arrived and he was plans to stay.
Kevin came into limelight in the movie scene after making a guest appearance in Undeclared and he would later make his film debut in Paper Soldiers. Hart would not stop there however as he gained further recognition form movies like Scary Movie, Soul Plane (a black comedy film), The 40-Year Old Virgin, and Death at a Funeral. In 2012, he appeared in Think Like A Man, and the sequel Think Like A Man Too. In 2013, Kevin played the role of a boxing promoter in Grudge Match, and appeared in Exit Strategy as Mannequin Head Man. he also appeared in 35 and Ticking.
Hart’s style in inspired (particularly his stand-up comedy) derives strongly from his racial, physical, familiar and gender roles and experiences. His stand-up frequently invokes-depression derived from as a black man who does quite measure up to the average height with an extended family. He uses his struggles he’s encountered career path and personal paths in life. He usually talks about his fears of being less than ideal physically gifted, the resulting ways in which his fears intersect with his sexuality, gender role, as well as the dynamics of his social interactions, and how he fails to live up to the traditional definitions and notions of them. Hart has however declared his acceptance of his vulnerability and shortcomings.
