Kevin Hart coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa
It was only one scene, but we feel no shame in saying it: Kevin Hart was the funniest part of The 40-Year Old Virgin. "You're throwing too many big words at me. Because I don't understand 'em, I'm gonna take 'em as disrespect." (Click here for the full, very NSFW scene.)
At some point in the last five years, thanks to that scene, plus roles in the Scary Movie franchise, Soul Plane, Death at a Funeral and Little Fockers, Hart managed to parlay his "Little Dude With A Funny Voice" schtick into becoming arguably the biggest young urban comic in America.
Now his tour itinerary is filling up with dates that suit his rising status. Hart is booked to perform March 1 at the St. Pete Times Forum, joining Jeff Dunham and Steve Harvey on the Forum's comedy slate for 2011. Tickets go onsale at 10 a.m. Jan. 14 for $37-$47 (but we're going to need 'em for the price of ... on the house). Click here.
Aim high, Willis! Aim high!
