Philadelphia's own Kevin Hart last week celebrated the birth of his third child and first with his second wife, Eniko Parrish.
For the first time on Sunday, Hart introduced the world to young Kenzo Kash, whose name is decidedly not a reference to a certain Philadelphia neighborhood.
Hart announced Monday that he'll be providing a strong last laugh to the final episode of the current season of "Saturday Night Live," marking his third appearance on the show.
The spotlight will shine on Hart just as he gears up for the Christmas weekend debut of "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle," a reboot of the 1995 classic that pairs the comedian with co-stars Dwayne Johnson and Jack Black.
Hart is coming to the end of an up-and-down year that saw him honored with his own day in Philadelphia and rocked with a series of cheating allegations. He's got multiple films slated for production and release in 2018, including his Philadelphia-filmed remake of the French hit "The Intouchables," redone with Bryan Cranston as "The Upside" for US audiences. That film will premiere next March.
And if you want to see Hart perform live, your best bet will be when he makes a pair of stops in Wilkes Barre and Reading for his "Irresponsible" stand-up tour.
Some fans may not know this, but Kevin Hart once auditioned to join the cast of "Saturday Night Live." He failed miserably. Listen to him tell the story in his own words below.
