The future comedian's first job was as a shoe salesman. But he gave it up to try his luck at a comedy club. True, the first performances were unsuccessful, but that didn't make him give up on his goal. Kevin's childhood was difficult. His father was constantly serving time in prison for various crimes and was a drug addict. Hart tried to numb the pain with constant jokes. Hart is around 5 feet 2 inches tall, but the actor himself is not concerned about his height and often cracks a joke a two about it in his stand-up sets. Kevin once managed to break Eddie Murphy's record. He was the first African-American to sell more than $1 million worth of tickets in two days. Hart was scheduled to host the 2019 Academy Awards. However, his social media posts, which were about 10 years old, received publicity at the time. Minorities felt he made too rude and offensive a joke about them. As a result, the comedian was asked to apologize publicly, which he did. However, afterwards, the actor voluntarily resigned as host.
