Kevin Hart’s First Netflix Stand-Up Special to Debut in April

Titled ”Kevin Hart: Irresponsible,“ the special was filmed before Hart’s Oscars controversy

Kevin Hart has lined up his next stand-up special, this time with Netflix.

Titled “Kevin Hart: Irresponsible,” the special was filmed last September during Hart’s stop at London’s O2 Arena. Per Netflix, in the hourlong set, Hart “touches upon his friends, family, travel … and a year filled with Irresponsible behavior.”

It will debut on the streamer on Tuesday, April 2.

The debut of the new special follows a turbulent few months for the comedian, whose history of making homophobic jokes cost him a job as host of last month’s Oscars.

Hart was initially announced as Oscars host in December, but within days the comedian had stepped down when anti-gay tweets and jokes from his past stand-up sets were resurfaced on social media. It was followed by a much-lambasted appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show in which the comedian refused to apologize again, saying he had already publicly addressed the controversy and had since grown and changed.
