Kevin Hart is an insanely busy man. He stars in a TV show (BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood”) and has been in seven films since the beginning of 2014 (“Ride Along,” “About Last Night,” “Think Like a Man Too,” “School Dance,” “Top Five,” “The Wedding Ringer,” “Get Hard”).
But the comic somehow manages to squeeze in a few stand-up shows, too. His rising stature in the entertainment world has made him even bigger than he was the last time he came to Philips December 1, 2012.
As a result, Hart has added an unprecedented third show at Philips, the most ever for a solo stand-up comedian in the arena’s 16-year history. (Katt Williams doesn’t count. He scheduled two but cut short one and skipped a second after being bitten by a spider. He ultimately made up the second one.)
Hart has already sold a bulk of the tickets from the two shows on Friday, June 12. The third show on Saturday goes on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Tickets range from $55.50 to $169.50 before Ticketmaster fees.
If he sells out 45,000-plus seats over three shows, he could easily pull in more than $4 million. And he’ll pocket a good bulk of that. And unlike musicians, he doesn’t have to pay a band. (You can buy tickets here.)
