So, for the next seven years Kevin traveled all over the country, performing at EVERY comedy club and college he could book.
Kevin's plan: to build a fan base so huge that entertainment moguls would HAVE to give him another chance.
Kevin Hart performed all over the country To assist with his career, Hart engaged various agents and promotors, and his memoir contains advice about the right and wrong people to employ hint: stay away from aggressive loudmouths and scam artists. In time, Kevin hired an agent named Dave Becky, who's still with him today. Hart also improved his act by doing away with contrived jokes and using his real life for inspiration - like the time he called the cops after Torrei slapped him across the face In short, Hart learned to make comedy out of his uniqueness and personality.
Kevin Hart's agent Dave Becky Hart also surrounded himself with an entourage of fellow comedians and friends, who communally called themselves 'The Plastic Cup Boyz' - for the red cups they drank from.

Unfortunately, their relationship got more contentious and their fighting escalated. Kevin admits to numerous infidelities and much bad behavior during this period. Kevin Hart, his first wife Torrei, and their children To add to his woes, Kevin's mother passed away from ovarian cancer.
The comic notes: "In my mind, my heart, and my life, she is still completely present to this day - and as wise, compassionate, and stubborn as ever. Around this time Kevin also starred in a hit movie, 'Think Like a Man' - which was a turning point in his career. The movie 'Think Like a Man' was a turning point for Kevin Hart's career From this point on Kevin's life was on an upward trajectory - with movies, comedy tours, TV productions, and more.
Kevin, who never gets complacent and doesn't know the word 'enough', has even bigger plans for his future - both personal and professional. Kevin later used this cultivated charm - and winning personality - to get jobs and opportunities. Then he hustled right back home. His mom KNEW that would happen ha ha ha. So Kevin tried everything he could to sprout a bush - including hair oil, shaving cream, fertilizer, and prayers. The fertilizer really cracks me up. So he wore his brother's large shoes LOL - By the time Kevin was a teen, his mom gave up corporal punishment and switched to verbal reprimands.

Nancy knew that - short of stabbing, shooting, or mace-ing Kevin, there was nothing she could do to physically hurt him. And the best bit of all: - When he was financially strapped early in his career, Kevin maxed out an American Express card The company never forgot, and - even when Kevin was a huge success - denied him a card. In the book's acknowledgements, Kevin writes: "American Express, if you're reading this, please run my credit again. I wrote this entire book just to send a message to you: I'm now ready to handle the responsibility of a credit card. Highly recommended. Note: Some of Hart's comedy shows are available on Netflix, in case you're interested.
They're really funny! View all 16 comments. Jan 27, Whitney Atkinson rated it liked it Shelves: read-in , audiobook , memoir. This wasn't a bad book, but I have a couple of massive problems with it that don't really have anything to do with the book itself. First, I listened to this book on audiobook like I do most memoirs and non-fiction books, even though I also own a copy of it. And I realized very quickly that it was going by really slowly.
After about 3 hours of the audiobook, I realized that as Kevin narrates the audiobook, he throws in a TON of aside information and goes off on a bunch of tangents that's not wri This wasn't a bad book, but I have a couple of massive problems with it that don't really have anything to do with the book itself. After about 3 hours of the audiobook, I realized that as Kevin narrates the audiobook, he throws in a TON of aside information and goes off on a bunch of tangents that's not written in the book.
The audiobook is literally a completely different story and experience than the actual book. I don't know why he was allowed to add in literally what probably added up to HOURS of extra content. A lot of times it was really lame and unfunny, but most times I just didn't even notice when he was going off track. But just be aware that listening to this and reading it are two completely different ordeals.
Second, this is written "with" another person ie. Kevin would often joke about not knowing how to pronounce something or that one of the chapter titles is stupid or he would make fun of the way something was phrased, and it was just so obvious that he wouldn't be pointing that out if he was the one who'd written it. At one point he reads the word "desert" but then spends literally like 5 minutes talking about the difference between desert and dessert and it's like?????? If you wrote the book, wouldn't you know which one it is????
Anyway, that was just really irksome. Third, Kevin just really made himself out to be a pretty shitty person in this book. I like that he doesn't shy away from talking about the bad portions of his life, but he really didn't talk about anything to redeem him from that darkness. I was almost shocked at how casually and with jokes interspersed he talked about really serious issues like drunk driving and cheating on his wife.
Which kind of delves into another issue-- this book covered his entire life, but I thought it would be more more interesting if it focused on his career. I almost put this down at the beginning because there was so many jokes about living in the hood and having black parents that I just couldn't relate to, so nothing was funny, and that's all he talked about for literally like 2 or 3 hours.
But I stuck with it, and I did end up liking hearing him talk about his career. Overall, this was just too long, a bit aimless, lacking any deep motivation or message to its audience even though he tried to give "life lessons," they were pretty basic. Kevin had his funny moments and he had his annoying moments, and even though this definitely isn't on the level of some celebrity audiobooks i've listened to, I don't regret reading it.
View all 3 comments. This book really made me appreciate Kevin Hart and his story is very eye opening. I'm not sure why I never realized how long he's been around. From the consumer standpoint, it seems that he just exploded onto the scene, seemingly out of nowhere. His hilarious autobiography shows that he's been busting his ass for years to get where he's at today.
This was a great listen. If you're a fan of his standup, you'll definitely enjoy the audio. Jun 21, Theresa Alan rated it it was amazing. This is a surprisingly inspiring book. Yes, it was inspiring to read about how he overcame a challenging childhood to become the only comedian in history to sell out an NFL stadium, but it was also jam-packed with motivational passages for anyone who is working toward a dream.

Also, because of my sister, I know more than the average nonperformer about the world of stand-up, sketch, and improv comedy and what it takes to make it in these careers. There were some very funny bits to the book, which should surprise no one. It was fascinating hearing how hard he worked for so long and all the mistakes he made along the way. Persistence is how he ultimately made it.
I could quote a million passages, but I leave you with this. It takes a lot of effort to get it moving. But if you can budge it just a few inches in the right terrain, then it starts picking up speed all by itself.
