Kevin Hart: “The Reason For ‘What Now?’ Is Because That’s The Question That I Get The Most.”

The comedian talks about his latest comedy special “Kevin Hart: What now?” which opens in theaters Friday.

Film Title: Kevin Hart: What Now?

He’s steadily worked his way up the ranks of Hollywood and has starred in some of the most successful comedies of the past decade. The former shoe-salesman, who began his career in entertainment when he took to the stage at a comedy club’s amateur night in Philadelphia several decades ago, is one of the leading entertainers in the industry.

In his fifth comedy special, Hart takes center stage in a record-setting, sold-out performance of “Kevin Hart: What Now?”

A comedy special filmed outdoors in front of 50,000 people at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, it marks the first time a comedian has ever performed to an at-capacity football stadium.Film Title: Kevin Hart: What Now?

“The reason for What Now? is because that’s the question that I get the most,” Hart explains.  “No matter what you do in life or what you achieve, everybody always wants to know what the next thing is.  ‘After the success I had with ‘Let Me Explain’, I got it so much, I said, ‘That’s going to be the title of my next stand-up film.”Kevin Hart- What Now?

Written by Hart and directed by his longtime collaborator Leslie Small and Tim Story, who he worked with on the “Ride Along” movies, this new comedy event follows up Hart’s 2013 hit concert movie “Let Me Explain” —which became the third-highest live stand-up comedy movie of all time.

“I’ve always wanted to produce, write and create my own content and to be a self-made man in this business,” shares Hart.  “I’m putting my best foot forward in doing so, and you’re watching me check off things in my bucket list as we speak. “‘What Now?’ is a question that should always be answered,” Hart continues.  “It’s a non-stop movement and that’s where the title stems from.”

With funny materials on his family, including his kids, dad, and current relationship, there’s also a James Bond parody featuring him as Agent 0054, and cameos from Halle Berry and  Don Cheadle.
