American actor, comedian, writer and producer Kevin Hart will perform at Abu Dhabi’s du Arena on Friday, April 1.
The comedian, who is set to host the 2016 MTV Awards in April, has a huge fan following across the world and is making his UAE debut at the Yas Island venue – the only stop in the Middle East for his hugely successful What Now? international tour.
“Comedy is a genre that appeals to all and Flash has kept the UAE laughing for the past eight years with artists like: Chris Tucker, Russell Peters, Jeff Dunham and now we add global superstar Kevin Hart to the list of international comedy glitterati,” said John Lickrish, the Flash chief executive.
“We’re excited to bring this international tour to the UAE for the only Middle East show and to welcome Kevin’s unique style on stage for a night to remember.”
In 2015, Hart starred in The Wedding Ringer, which pulled in US$80 million globally, and he also starred opposite Will Farrell in Get Hard. This year, Hart will star in Ride Along 2, the much-anticipated sequel to last year's hit that raked in $150 million internationally. His comedy shows Laugh At My Pain and I'm A Grown Little Man are both popular on Netflix. Hart's DVD Seriously … Funny went triple platinum and became one of the fastest-selling DVDs of all time.
What Now?, which has been called the biggest comedy tour in history, kicked off April 9, 2015 in San Antonio, Texas. Hart has already broken ticket sales records with the tour in 45 cities across the US and Canada. He is currently touring the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia and South Africa.
