Kevin Hart | June 30th | Garde Arts Center
Actor and comedian Kevin Hart just announced on Tuesday, four days before his scheduled Birthday Bash at Foxwoods, that he would be holding an impromptu show at the Garde Arts Center to test new comedy material — a growing trend in the comedy world.
In February, Louis C.K. threw an impromptu comedy show in Boston that had crowds flocking en masse to the gig, and Chris Rock did the same thing at Greenwich Village’s Comedy Cellar in October.
Hart’s show, however, is scheduled only two hours before his party is to begin, which had us wondering how he would even make it on time. A helicopter, perhaps? All jokes aside, for Hart, this makes sense. He is known for his work ethic, and his decision to seize on an opportunity to perform at a great local arts institution shows, on his part, that coming to Connecticut for what seems like a promotional event for Foxwoods, wouldn’t be enough for him.
So wait ’til those who already bought a $45 ticket to his birthday party hear of this. Foxwoods’ vague description of Hart’s party had us wondering what going to such an event would entail — it seems that Hart won’t be doing any sort of performance at the party, so onlookers might be left to watch their star sit across the room drinking champagne. At the very least, based on the party info, everyone will be guaranteed a lot of cake.
