Kevin Hart Performs at The Cotillion 1/28


Kevin Hart has burst onto the scene as one of the most versatile comedy actors in film and television. Earlier this year, he was seen on the big screen in the hit Screen Gems drama Not Easily Broken opposite Morris Chestnut and Taraji P. Henson. Hart recently premiered his new one-hour comedy special "I'm a Grown Little Man" on Comedy Central. The special debuted as one of the highest rated specials for the network. He will next be seen starring in Comedy Central's new series "Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire" set to premiere in April 2009. Hart stars as Zezelryck, the young warlock whose greatest magical gift is spinning BS, in this fantasy comedy series about a reluctant hero and his band of remarkably ineffectual freedom fighters.

Hart took over as host of BET's classic stand-up comedy series "Comic View: One Mic Stand" when the show re-launched in September. The series, which showcases seasoned and up-and-coming comedians, airs Wednesdays at 11:30 PM. Hart follows in the footsteps of past hosts such as D.L. Hughley and Cedric the Entertainer. Hart's other television credits include ABC's "The Big House" which he also executive produced and wrote and recurring roles on "Love, Inc," "Barbershop," and "Undeclared."

Debuted on amateur night at a Philadelphia Comedy Club, Hart was insistently hooked. He quit his job as a shoe salesman and began performing full time at such clubs as The Boston Comedy Club, Caroline's, Stand-Up NY, The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. However, it was his first appearance at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival that led to work in such feature films as Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3, and Along Came Polly opposite Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston. With his passion for stand-up, Hart continues to tour the country to sold-out audiences.

He was also seen on the big screen in the FOX comedy Meet Dave opposite Eddie Murphy and in Dimension Film's action comedy spoof Superhero Movie opposite Tracey Morgan, Regina Hall. He also co-starred alongside Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson in Fool's Gold. His biggest break came when he landed the lead in MGM's Soul Plane opposite Tom Arnold, Method Man and Snoop Dog. Hart's recent film credits include Drillbit Taylor, Epic Movie, The Last Stand, Scary Movie 4, In the Mix and The 40 Year Old Virgin.

Kevin Hart 8:00 pm Friday, January 28. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Reserved seat tickets are $45.00 at Select-a-Seat, The Cotillion, House of Sight & Sound and the employee clubs. For further information and to charge tickets by phone call 316-722-4201 or logon to
