Quotes about Kevin Hart
Even as a little boy, Kevin had an obsession for stand-up comedy and comedians in general. Explaining about how he discovered his comic side, he once said “I was probably around eleven.

Cause if I could stop a whupping with comedy, I’m doing the right thing".

Everything is an open book. I don't speak on other people's hardship, but if it happened in my life or something that has been an experience on my particular journey, I'm going to talk about it.

People don't want drama 365 days a year. I'm a sense of relief; it's my job to take your mind off what's bad for that brief second you're in the room with me, regardless of shape, race, colour or anything. It brings people together, and it makes me feel good about what I'm doing.
