Kevin Hart to make UAE debut



Actor, comedian, writer and producer, Kevin Hart is a man of many talents and, for the first time in the UAE, he’s set to showcase his comedic flair. The notorious Hollywood funny man will take to the stage at Abu Dhabi’s du Arena on Friday, April 1.

With a huge following worldwide, his What Now? International Tour is already proving hugely successful, however the Abu Dhabi show is the only date in the Middle East, so it’s bound to be a hot ticket.

“Comedy is a genre that appeals to all and Flash has kept the UAE laughing for the past eight years with artists like Chris Tucker, Russell Peters, Jeff Dunham and now we add global superstar Kevin Hart to the list of international comedy glitterati. We’re excited to bring this international tour to the UAE for the only Middle East show and to welcome Kevin’s unique style on stage for a night to remember,” said John Lickrish, CEO Flash Entertainment, who are outing on the gig.

The A-list comedian is currently on tour in Europe, and is set to host the 2016 MTV Music Awards in April, in what is shaping up to be his busiest year yet. That’s not to say that he hasn’t enjoyed massive success in previous years – in 2015 he starred in The Wedding Ringer, as well as Get Hard alongside Will Farrell.

Although this gig is Hart’s first stand-up act in the UAE, it’s not his first visit. In November last year this video of him hanging out with a lion and a tiger while on a trip to Dubai was posted to YouTube.

An exclusive pre-sale for du customers will open at 12pm on Monday March 7 and for Flash members from 12pm on Tuesday March 8. Tickets starting at AED395 go on sale at 12pm on Wednesday March 9 and will be available at and all Virgin Megastores across the UAE.
