Kevin Darnell Hart, widely known as Kevin Hart, is one of the funniest people of this century. He is a triple threat as he acts, does comedy and is also a host on TV. Before he became the well-known funny guy everyone knows and loves, he did odd jobs just as many people in the world do before starting a lucrative career. He was a shoe sales man and did an amateur performance in stand-up comedy. After the latter is when he started pursuing a career in comedy.
Hart had, however, a head start as a comedian in that when he was young, his family life was full of problems and to deal with it, he used humour. We have seen humour to be a very good choice when it comes to dealing with problems as showcased by Chandler from Friends. Away from the story of how he started off, here is a list of Kevin Hart movies and his stand-up films.

List of Kevin Hart stand up films and movies
Have you watched any of the following films?
1. Kevin Hart: I’m a Grown Little Man
From the name itself, Kevin Hart uses his own life and some would say insecurities as part of his comedy. However, if pointing out my insecurities can make millions, then sign me up!
Being short is one of the most standing-out traits of Kevin Hart. And he literally uses it in his everyday comings and goings. This was his first ever comedy tour.
2. Kevin Hart: Seriously Funny
This is one good Kevin Hart movies on Netflix. Having done it in Ohio, Lebron James who is a good friend to Kevin Hart was featured as a cast in the film.
3. Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain
It had more features than the previous films including Larry King and Taraji P Henson. Laugh at My Pain was actually released in movie theatres, which including the tour itself made a total of around 15 million dollars. In that year, it had the most sales in the comedy tours category.
4. Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain
This was another of Kevin Hart’s film series that was shown in theatres. People had some concerns with the film as it contained foul language, talk about drugs and a lot of sex talk.
Either way, the two shows he did at first were totally sold out and made some big bucks. So I can say he did well for himself regardless of the concerns people had.
5. Kevin Hart What Now?
In his most recent comedy tours, he made a stop to Africa where he visited three cities in South Africa. He did 168 shows which are a lot so he had to do 2 shows in some of the towns, in one day.
The Rock and Kevin Hart movies
Kevin Hart and The Rock are a force to reckoned with. It is no wonder that they have started in more than one movie together as well as being friends in real life. Their movies are not only hilarious, but they also bring out the bromance between them while also making headlines in the box office.
6. Central Intelligence
Central Intelligence was directed by the same people who directed We’re The Millers which already shows that the movie was a success. Bob played by The Rock is in the CIA who teams up with Calvin for his skills as an accountant to save the world.
We are shown the lives of the two while in high school. Bob being the weird kid who is picked on but can do a killer lip sync. Calvin is a popular kid.
Often in movies, people in the CIA are not allowed to tell normal people that they are in the CIA. However, Bob tells Calvin because he needs his help and it turns out to be a hilarious exchange.
7. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
In this movie, The Rock is not exactly the strong, fearless character that we often see in his movies. Well, he eventually does become that. But before he does, he is a just nerdy high school boy who is shy and has never kissed a girl. This character was played perfectly by The Rock. Imagine him mantra chanting, ‘don’t cry, don’t cry, it’s gonna be okay’. It’s hella funny!
For Kevin Hart’s character, he starts as a jock who transforms into a short and not very tough avatar which of course he keeps complaining about.
The chemistry between the two and the other characters in the movie could be why it made around 900 million dollars.
8. Jumanji 3
This is a sequel of the first movie which will be released end of 2019.
So far, it is two movies that Kevin Hart and The Rock are in together and we cannot wait for them to do more. That was in case you were asking, “How many movies has Kevin Hart and the rock been in?”

It is one of Kevin Hart movies 2017 that made his year prosperous, including Jumanji.

Or maybe he is, in his own way. You be the judge of that.
20. Scary Movie Franchise

Real Husbands of Hollywood
Of course, it is not a movie but is one of Kevin Hart’s works that he co-created and produced. It ran for 5 seasons before it ended. It makes fun of celebrities real lives in a parody kind of way. The celebrities featured were Nick Cannon, Robin Thicke, J. B. Smoove among others.
Considering the success Kevin Hart is experiencing, I am pretty certain the list of Kevin Hart movies will increase. A lot of people know Kevin Hart comedy movies but once in a while, he does serious movies such as The Upside, which does not mean the movies will not showcase his comedic side. It is clear you cannot take the comedy out of Kevin Hart. I cannot wait for all the Kevin Hart movies that are in production to be released and I am sure most Kevin Hart's fans are all waiting.
