Powerhouse Stand Up Comedian And Actor Kevin Hart Extends His Wildly Successful ‘Let Me Explain’ Tour With 20 Arena Dates This Fall

LOS ANGELES, June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — On the heels of his starring role in the hit movie “Think Like A Man,” actor and comedian Kevin Hart announces he will extend his “Let Me Explain” tour which moves from sold-out theaters to arena dates this fall. Hart has performed for more than 334,000 fans during the 2011 and 2012 theater run of “Let Me Explain.” Hart has also confirmed two dates in London at the Birmingham Academy on September 13th and the O2 Arena on September 14th.  Tickets go on sale June 15th at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

This spring Kevin starred in the Screen Gems film Think Like A Man, a comedy based on Steve Harvey‘s bestselling book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man from 2009. The movie was number one at the box office for two consecutive weeks. Hart also had a supporting role in Universal & Nick Stoller‘s comedy Five Year Engagement by producer Judd Apatow

Kevin Hart burst onto the scene as one of the most versatile comedy actors in film and television. In September 2011 Hart released “Laugh At My Pain,” the feature film version of his comedy tour (under the same name). The movie grossed over $7 million, and was 2011’s most successful film of those released in less than 300 theaters. The LAMP tour made Hart 2011’s number one comedian on Ticketmaster, and in February 2011 Hart sold out the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles for two nights in a row to break the previous box office record by an African American comedian set by Eddie Murphy. The LAMP DVD hit double platinum in February 2012, after being on sale for one month.

Hart’s DVD Seriously…Funny is one of the fastest selling DVDs in recent years and has gone triple Platinum. His comedy central special of the same name is the highest rated comedy special of 2010. In 2009, Hart’s one-hour comedy special “I’m a Grown Little Man” on Comedy Central was also one of the highest rated specials for the network.
