Comedian Kevin Hart to perform at Goldstein Auditorium

The frenetic actor and comic, known for his starring roles in 'Ride Along' and 'About Last Night,' will visit SU on Nov. 2 for a stand-up set and a Q-and-A/film screening.

Kevin Hart -- the manic, hyperactive comedian who graduated from hilarious bit player in Judd Apatow films to become a Hollywood-ready leading man -- will perform at Goldstein Auditorium on Nov. 2, University Union announced tonight.

Hart's appearance on campus will be split into two events. The first, an advance screening of his new film, The Wedding Ringer, will take place in the HBC Gifford Auditorium at 2 p.m. After the film, Hart and costar Josh Gad will sit for a Q-and-A session with the audience. The screening is free but requires a ticket for entry.

The second event, set to take place at 7 p.m., is a proper stand-up set in Goldstein. Tickets for the performance are $10 and go on sale tomorrow at the Schine box office to all SU and ESF students. UU tweeted tonight that there will be a two-ticket limit per person for the comedy performance.

A native of Philadelphia, Hart hopped around comedy clubs in the early 2000s before landing small but notable roles in films like Scary Movie 3 and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. This year, Hart has seen large-scale success at cinemas and on television, with a starring role on BET's Real Husbands of Hollywood. The Wedding Ringer is set to be released in theaters in January.
