Escape from Kevin Hart is impossible. The never-not-hustling 36-year-old comedian now has his sights set on the New York Times bestseller list with news of a memoir that’s on the way.
His upcoming book From The Hart (like it’d be titled anything else) will be aiming for the inspirational with a focus on the comic’s upbringing in Philadelphia through to the impressive success he experiences today. Hart commented on his plans to craft the book (coming out on Atria Books imprint 37 Ink) in a statement attached to the news of his newfound status of author.
“My kids know I’m a big deal. They’re very aware. I let them know every day, I say, ‘Look, daddy’s a big deal,’” Hart said in a statement. “Now I’ll have a book out to prove it.”
37 Ink vice president and publisher Dawn Davis sang Hart’s praises in the same statement and provided an intriguing tease of what’s to come from Hart’s memoir.
“I’ve been watching Kevin’s star rise ever since he stole the show in Think Like a Man. He not only has a comedic sensibility that is perfectly-pitched for our time, he has a bounty of stories from his life that are wise, funny, and entertaining.”
We would have also liked SOME STORIES FROM MEET DAVE written in big block letters in the statement trumpeting the future arrival of From The Hart, but that might not be how things are done in the literary world.
As always, Hart has a pretty busy schedule lined up ahead of him even with a memoir on the way. June’s Rock-assisted Central Intelligence marks the second 2016 action-comedy on Hart’s plate in six months (remember Ride Along 2?), there’s his voicework in the summer animated feature The Secret Life of Pets, and the stand-up special Kevin Hart: What Now?. If that’s not enough, there’s even the Move With Hart podcast that just debuted.
Dude makes anyone on the drug from Limitless look like they’ve been chugging NyQuil for weeks. Kevin Hart just can’t stop working.
