Kevin Hart Killed (Again)

Richie Tienken, Kevin Hart, and Jeffrey Gurian

Kevin Hart came by the World Famous Comic Strip Live two nights in a row this week, and the crowd was ecstatic.

In February, Kevin performed a sold out show on Long Island that Jeffrey Gurian produced.  Comic Strip co-owner Richie Tienken walked the red carpet that night, and Jeffrey Gurian introduced the two before inviting Kevin to perform on our stage.

Check our schedule regularly so you’ll catch him the next time he’s in town.

Kevin Hart! Tonight at the Comic Strip!


As anyone in the crowd at the Comic Strip Live! last night found out first hand, Kevin Hart is one funny man!

An incredibly likable comedian with film credits to his name such as Knocked Up, Scary Movie 3, Soul Plane, Fool’s Gold and more, Hart brought his trademark delivery (and smile) to the Comic Strip last night as he performed much to the delight of our always spectacular Sunday night audience.

Kevin is also the star of the highly popular series of new commercials for online giant eBay. Watch one of the clips below:

A Philadelphia native, Hart released his first hour special “I’m a Grown Little Man” in 2009. He will be returning to the Comic Strip tonight for a spot sometime around 10’o’clock. Come on out!
