Kevin Hart and Conan O'Brien trade insults during workout

Posted on

TBS

Kevin Hart and Conan O’Brien joined forces again on Thursday night’s episode of Conan, but this time the duo opted for a joint workout instead of a ride-along.

The bit was to promote Hart’s new stand-up special What Now?, which features Hart performing in front of a football stadium full of people. He claims the audience was as big as 53,000 people, so O’Brien constantly antagonizes him by lowering that estimate. This rivalry came in handy when their trainer gave them a medicine ball to throw back and forth.

“There’s no accurate count for how many people were in that stadium!” O’Brien yelled as he threw the ball. “That’s what your accountant says, for tax purposes! I’ve seen shots and it looks like 1,500 people tops! Those are all relatives you invited!”

“You throw like Macaulay Culkin,” Hart said. “Give me the goddamn respect I deserve.”

At the very least, they ended up having a good workout. The trainer complimented their progress even as the two comedians continued to hurl insults, this time for each other’s workout clothes. “You look like you’re going to a nice Armenian wedding,” O’Brien said.
