Before Kevin Hart was in seemingly every movie released, he was one of the most successful stand-up comedians — and he’s returning to his roots in the new trailer for What Now?.
Last year, Hart set out on a tour that concluded with a stop in Hart’s hometown of Philadelphia, where he became the first comedian to sell out a football stadium with his performance at Lincoln Financial Field in front of 53,000 fans. That historic performance is now the center of What Now?, the follow-up to Hart’s Let Me Explain, another special that was released in theaters. That 2013 movie brought in over $32.4 million at the box office over its seven-week limited run.
The trailer for What Now? kicks off with Hart taking a fictional trip to a casino before his big show, where he shows off his subtitle skills and pension for crying. Once Hart is onstage, we get a peek at some of his new material when the comedian touches on his kid’s lack of edge and his fear that the world would see a picture of him on the toilet.
What Now? might be the last time fans see Hart doing stand-up, as the comedian said in April during an appearance at Las Vegas’ CinemaCon that What Now? was his “last f—ing tour.” He added, “I don’t know if I’m ever going to go out and do it again.”
What Now? hits theaters on October 14. See the trailer for What Now? above.
