Get Hart at Target Center
He might be small in stature, but Kevin Hart is one of the biggest comedians in the game. After starring in this year's "The Wedding Ringer" and "Get Hard" with Will Ferrell, Hart embarked on a sprawling five-month arena tour, landing at the Target Center on Friday. According to Billboard, his current What Now? Tour could become the highest-grossing comedy tour ever and will make him the first comedian to headline a stadium when it ends at Lincoln Financial Field in his native Philadelphia.
