Kevin Hart Announces First Standup After Oscars Flap

Kevin Hart has announced his return to comedy. “Mark your calendars damn it. My Comedy special will be dropping on April 2nd on Netflix. I can’t wait….Let’s gooooooo #Irresponsible#ComedicRockStarS–t #Netflix,” Hart, 39, wrote on social media.

The post also included a teaser trailer featuring him standing in a red spotlight that zooms into Netflix’s logo. The special was filmed in front of a 15,000 person crows in London as part of Hart’s most recent tour, Irresponsible

This is Hart’s first standup special for the mega-streamer, though his work, including Kevin Hart’s Guide to Black History, has been shown on the streamer. 

This special follows his decision to step down as host of the Oscars in February after old homophobic tweets he sent out were resurfaced.
