Kevin Hart, the stand-up comedian and actor, whose films have grossed over $500 million in domestic box-office ticket sales, will air his latest, record-breaking, stand-up special, Laugh At My Pain, tonight (January 15) at 9 p.m. on Comedy Central.
Laugh At My Pain was released last September to a limited number of theaters and grossed over $7 million during its three-month theatrical run; however, the 90-city tour earned over $15 million in ticket sales.
Hart’s two-date stint at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre during the tour led the comedian to break a record previously set by Eddie Murphy as the first African-American to earn over $1.1 million in comedy show ticket sales. Check here for our interview with Hart back when the film premiered.
Laugh At My Pain was filmed during Hart’s performance at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. and was directed by Leslie Small and Tim Story.
The television premiere of Laugh At My Pain airs tonight at 9 p.m. EST on Comedy Central.
