Kevin Hart Beats Eddie Murphy’s Record + New Sitcom
Kevin Hart working his little butt off to make his mark in comedy and it’s working. His 2010 stand up comedy show “Kevin Hart: Seriously Funny” sold 350,000 DVD copies and rightfully so! It was one of the funniest comedy performance that came out that year. What about this year?
Kevin’s keen storytelling style of his family ushered in a new stand up performance for 2011 titled Laugh at My Pain that sold $1.1 million ticket sales in a two-day period! The last African-American comedian to have that record was Eddie Murphy.
Kevin has also signed on to star in a Fox pilot called Little in Common centered around little league baseball.
Kevin Hart is set to star opposite Rob Corddry in Rob Thomas’ single-camera comedy pilot for Fox Little in Common. The WBTV-produced pilot is about 3 families united through their kids’ little league sports. It centers on the Caucasian, oh-so-proper Wellers (Corddry, Paula Marshall) who move from San Jose, CA to Austin, TX, but find that their adjustment won’t be quite that easy, considering that their Latino neighbors, the Pachecos, have a radically different approach to child-rearing than they do, while their other new neighborhood acquaintances, the African American Burlesons, take sports very seriously. Hart will play Ty Burleson, a former Division 2 athlete and sports writer-turned-house husband who now satisfies his competitive urges by coaching youth baseball.
Kevin Hart has proven to be a force of nature in comedy and it shows in his work. It’s great to see African-American comedy get explosive attention for the right reasons!
