Kevin Hart has come a long way since 2006 when he first began working as a standup comic. He has starred in films such as “Think Like A Man”, “About Last Night”, “Ride Along”, “The Wedding Ringer” and “Get Hard”. In addition, some of his comedy shows have been made into films: “I’m A Grown Little Man” and “Seriously Funny.” These films have put him where he is today, a famous comedian and actor. Millions have been fans ever since.
More than most of Kevin Hart’s films have five star reviews and most Kevin Hart fans dream of seeing him perform live. Last month, his fans got their chance. Around March of 2015, Kevin Hart announced he would be going on tour. The Tampa Bay area went crazy. Hart has never performed in Tampa before, so tickets went fast. He performed two shows on May 8th at the Tampa Bay Amalie Arena to sold out audiences. Kevin Hart’s “What Now Tour” will be filmed into a movie and put into theaters in October, 2016.
Kevin Hart’s tour to this date has become very popular. It was talked about worldwide in radio and TV commercials. Social media was filled with comments on how the tour has been thus far.
Hart did not find out until a week before May 8th that his tour would be made into a movie. Because his next show was going to be performed in Tampa, many hoped he would decide to have his performance in Tampa filmed. However, it has been decided that his show this August in Philadelphia will be the one featured in next year’s film.
For such a famous comedian and actor, it was obvious the traffic in Tampa would be horrible and the parking would be impossible, which it was. This show was a lot more packed than one would have thought. He performed a show at 7:30 pm and a show at 10:30 pm. Everyone was dressed up and the excitement was real.
Cell phones were not permitted and no pictures were allowed to be taken in the arena. After finding out his show was being filmed into a movie, Hart did not want any of his performance to go viral before his movie was put out in theaters.
Kevin Hart’s best friends have their own comedy group called “The Plastic Cup Boys.” These gentlemen opened Hart’s show for him with their own comedy performance. These comedians were hilarious and definitely did a fantastic job getting the crowd pumped up for Kevin Hart. Because there were no cell phones permitted, the comedy group used that as something to joke around about, considering a lot of people were getting kicked out for being on their cell phones before Kevin Hart even hit the stage. Many were very upset that pictures and videos were not able to taken, but everyone was too busy enjoying the show to let such thing ruin their experience.
Then it was time. Kevin Hart had an amazing entrance!
Kevin Hart’s comedy is very unique. His comedy is inspired by his own lifestyle and events that have happened during his lifetime. He makes his jokes based off of his family, friends, and children. Kevin Hart enjoys giving laughter and a good time to others.
Throughout the show, Hart was hysterical and the crowd was laughing nonstop while enjoying themselves.
For the money thousands spent while at the show, it was worth it, and it is pretty obvious that many can’t wait for Kevin Hart’s “What Now Tour” to be put in theaters so they can enjoy the experience all over again.
