Kevin Hart Set for ‘Comedic Ge­nius Award’ from Jimmy Kim­mel at MTV Movie Awards

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

An an­nounce­ment by MTV Fri­day states co­me­dian, ac­tor and tele­vi­sion pro­ducer, Kevin Hart will re­ceive the MTV “Comedic Ge­nius Award” dur­ing the “2015 MTV Movie Awards” air­ing LIVE on Sun­day, April 12 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT from Nokia Theater L.A. Live in Los An­ge­les, Cal­i­for­nia.

The award will be pre­sented by an­other funny man, late night TV host, Jimmy Kim­mel. Hart is be­ing hon­ored for his bold and ir­rev­er­ent comedic style which has cap­ti­vated au­di­ences from his movies and sit­coms, to stand-up spe­cials, award show per­for­mances and hordes of fans in packed are­nas. Hart’s “Get Hard” co-star Will Fer­rell was the first re­cip­i­ent of the award in 2013.

Be­fore Hart came on the scene he worked as a shoe sales­man. But it was when he tried his com­edy at an Am­a­teur Night at a Philadel­phia com­edy club that he got hooked in­stantly and quit his job to start per­form­ing full time. In 2011, dur­ing the “Laugh At My Pain” com­edy tour, he sold out the Nokia Theater two nights in a row, break­ing the record pre­vi­ously set by Ed­die Mur­phy.

His em­pire has grown to in­clude the boxof­fice hits: Ride Along, The Wed­ding Ringer, Think Like A Man, The Five Year En­gage­ment, Lit­tle Fock­ers, Fool’s Gold, Death at a Fu­neral, Along Came Polly and The 40 Year Old Vir­gin. His lat­est movie, Get Hard, with Will Fer­rell is now in the­atres.

Funny man Kevin Hart.
