The cab drivers were driving people way out of the way to get to anything to run up fares and even Uber was pricey at peak times. Perfect after a bad day at work. Cast Cast overview, first billed only:. Skits are leagues different from stand-up and unless you have a true grasp on how to time your humor in these things, you are better off not performing any of them. In the scheme of things though this was off the mark somewhat; did I laugh, sure did, did I at times find myself sitting there thinking was there something I forgot to do today, sure did. The final skit however was absolute garbage.
Yes, really to the latter but those beignets, though. Kevin Hart fans will not be disappointed. Because of watching this dvd of Kevin Hart I'm now such a big fan of his. Catch the original, never-before-seen Raw and Uncut backstage footage, and travel back to Philly with Kevin Hart where he began his journey to become one of the funniest comedians of all time. You wouldn't get this comment unless you get this dvd by Kevin Hart! He is that for me.
Like the best comedians, Hart is skilled at taking the darkest moments of his life and turning them into pure hilarity. I could not wait for the dvd to be released so that I could share this with my family and friends that did not get a chance to see it. Kevin had some really funny routines. For others, you won't be converted to a fan from this material. Laugh at My Pain consists of three acts: the first act being about Kevin Hart's tour of Philadelphia to the audience, the second act being his stand-up performance in Cali, and the final act being a random skit about robbing a bank.
The first part is biographical, and to be honest, I wasn't that interested. Kevin Hart is a great comic no doubt about that, love his stuff. Yes it was funny but it was a very disorganized film that prevented itself from being one of the better stand-up films—even though it was leagues under classics like Eddie Murphy's Raw and Richard Pryor's Live on the Sunset Strip. While Bill Cosby and Eddie Murphy back in the day can easily pull almost 2 hours of bits in one sitting, Hart doesn't have that ability----yet. His material is excellent but I didn't do 5 stars because I'd heard a few of these life scenarios in others of his performances. In this fine-tuned set, the quick-witted funny man returns to familiar territory, telling stories about life as a dad, his childhood, and the role his dysfunctional family played while growing up.
In the midst of his tour they decided to make a film out of it. He is one of the better modern-day comedians, but still lacks the variety, stamina, and the slick substance of Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle. He is very funny, but please don't eat when watching this because you might choke from laughing. Third off, t was unnecessary and just all-around not funny. I strongly suggest walking out after his stand-up part finished so you can walk away from the theater with a smile and not a frown. The one evolution you'll see here when compared to his past work is that he likes to run his jokes now, constantly repeating some of them throughout the bits.
Like the best comedians, is skilled at taking the darkest moments of his life and turning them into pure hilarity. He talks a lot about his dysfunctional family including an excellent bit about his infamous uncle that's a staple in his comedy , his sex life and impending divorce, and about financial lifestyle. Kevin's reaction to the situation is priceless. The audience I was watching the movie with was eating up this performance; they loved every second of it. Catch the original, never-before-seen Raw and Uncut backstage footage, and travel back to Philly with Kevin Hart where he began his journey to become one of the funniest comedians of all time. I love this once I got to the stand-up. This film isn't a game-changer, but will entertain plenty, especially in the middle bulk.
. Particularly memorable is his imitation of his thuggish Uncle Richard, Jr. Saturday but closed at 3 p. Henson in the audience laughing out loud. By stamina I mean length of his actual stand-up.
Himself Kevin Hart has risen from underground sensation to a mainstream comedian with a massively successful tour that rivals that of Eddie Murphy's conquering of the 80s. I smile just looking at him. Quick, witty, sarcastic, makes light of what must have been a tough life. One of the funniest comedians I have seen in a long time. Second off, it broke the entire pace of the movie.
In honor of Hart—who turned 35 on Friday—and the word of the weekend he gave us, here are seven other timeless catchphrases the hilarious father of two has added to the vernacular over the years. In this fine-tuned set, the quick-witted funny man returns to familiar territory, telling stories about life as a dad, his childhood, and the role his dysfunctional family played while growing up. Kevin Hart's comedy comes at the style of Bernie Mac, not afraid of humiliating himself while telling a plethora of amusing and sometimes exaggerated stories about his upbringings and his lifestyle. But his comedy remains excellent. Same cast of characters in his jokes and punch lines. Just watching his facial expressions is enough to crack me up! Kevin hart's brand of humor is conventional, not too edgy or underground like George Carlin and will appeal to most audiences as long as you can tolerate the language.
A lot of disjointed moments limited the rate of laughs from the audience to a point that the ending became quite sour. His stand-up here was definitely the best part of the movie, far more entertaining than the slightly egotistical but heartfelt intro in Philly, and much funnier than the awful skit that finishes the film. If you've ever seen his stand-up this is pretty standard. I guess it's part of his life, although as Kevin mentions, he was on drugs and could only come up to the third step at his house. I paid to watch this movie and I'll continue to pay to watch his stuff. Kevin Hart's stamina isn't as long as Bill Cosby, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, and not even the likes of Dane Cook.
