Photographed by Ashley Sky Walker, comedian Kevin Hart is featured on the cover of the latest edition of Uptown Magazine. Dubbed the ‘Hollywood’ issue, Kevin Hart discusses his hit television show, career, and more here. Check out a preview of the cover story below, and as always, let us know what you think!
‘Over the past few years, the multi-hyphenated funnyman has steadily built a sizeable Hollywood empire, utilizing his intuitive ability to fuse hotbutton, newsworthy moments with side-splitting comedy. Last year, Hart had a starring role in 2012’s breakout film Think Like a Man, which grossed more than $33 million in its opening weekend. He’s also on the, ahem, short list to host awards shows such as the VMAs and the BET Awards.
Yet despite box-office success, sold-out comedy shows, and tonight’s clear win, Hart remains humble and pragmatic. He credits his success to the old saying of preparation meeting opportunity. As a young comic, Hart dedicated countless hours studying tape after tape of stand-up icons including Redd Foxx, Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence.’
