Kevin Hart

Stand-up comedy is hard. It requires intelligence, speed of thought, memory and the ability to ride a successful tangent. Rare is the comic these days who will make you laugh no matter what. Kevin Hart is that stand-up. Chris Rock isn't doing much of anything on the stand-up stage, and it's tough when you hear Hart not to consider him Rock's heir apparent. Like Rock, Hart considers the entire world. Kids, fear, relationships, family -- nothing is off limits, yet everything is funny. Warning: Hart is blue. Get over it.

Why go: </b>That state of laughing so hard you can't breathe is rare.
<br><Br><b>
Reconsider:</b> You can't get past the swearing.
