Reputed to be the shortest male stand up comic in history*, Kevin Hart has been active in show business as a writer and performer since 1999.

He was raised by a single mother on the north end of Philadelphia, and gravitated to comedy at an early age. Some of his acting credits include Scary MovieThe 40-Year-Old Virgin, Little Fockers, Get Hard and the spoof TV series Real Husbands of Hollywood.

On Wednesday Nov. 18 Hart is in town to perform as part of his What Now? Tour. The show goes at Brandt Centre at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $49.50-$125, and more information can be found on the Brandt Centre website.

And here’s some video of a recent appearance by Hart on Conan where he speaks about his experience filming Get Hard with Will Ferrell

*Okay, I just made that up. Although at 5’4″ Hart is on the short end of the stature spectrum
