Hart is now scheduled to perform twice on Saturday, Feb. 11, at 8 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. and twice on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
Tickets range from $36 to $66. While promoters are describing the Feb. 11 late show as sold out, Coliseum officials say a handful of tickets remain.
Those shows had a higher capacity, however. General admission shows at the Coliseum can hold crowds as large as 13,800.
Reserved seat shows are smaller. Staff at Hampton Coliseum report that Hart's comedy shows will be set up for audiences of around 5,500. With four shows of that size, total ticket sales will top 22,000.
Coliseum director Joe Tsao said he's been tracking Hart for years and had hoped to book him for one of the New Year's comedy shows at the Coliseum. Still, Tsao didn't expect the explosion of popularity seen today.

While the pace of Hart's ascent is catching folks off guard, it's possible to look back and see signs of an impending popular explosion.
