The hardest working comedian in the game — Kevin Hart stopped by The Breakfast Club today Friday morning, January 16th to talk about his role in another one of his upcoming movies, “The Wedding Ringer” (which arrives in theaters today as well) – a new comedy special he is working on and his perspective of his career.
“I think I’m probably one of the dopest individuals on the planet,” Hart says. “I really gave it some thought. I think I’m in the top two.”
When asked who is the first, his answer is Jay Z. “When I talk to Hov, it blows my mind at how that man keeps challenging himself,” he says.
Kevin begins to tell a story about Jay Z telling him that he made it big because he [Jay Z] showed up to Hart’s show at Madison Square Garden.
“A hundred percent the funniest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Kevin says. “Hov shook my hand. He’s like, ‘How’s it feel, yo?’ I’m like, ‘What do you mean the Garden? I’ve sold out the Garden twice.’ ‘No, no, no, to have me come? How’s that?’ Listen, you wanna say something, but then think about it.”
“Really think about the question,” he continues. “He’s like, ‘That means you made it. I’m here.’ You can say what you want, but he deserves that. Yeah, he’s talking trash and being funny, but he deserves that.”
