A bevy of actors and celebrities walked the red carpet for the evening, such as festival ambassador Omari Hardwick, Anthony Anderson, Claudia Jordan, Salli Richardson Whitfield, Dondre Whitfield, Dwayne Wade, Wesley Jonathon and Amaris Jones, just to name a few. Of course, the funnyman himself, Kevin Hart was indeed present and accounted for at this premiere of “Let Me Explain” to discuss his latest one man stand up comedy cinematic.
Showing a plethora of snippets from various European stops along the tour and culminating at the live taping in Madison Square Garden, Hart “literally” brings the fire with his latest creation. Zealous fans from around the world giving their ‘shout outs’ display the massive impact that Hart is making as a global ambassador for comedy.
Focusing on topics ranging from the black woman’s body language and animations during arguments, to his employing a mishmash of bodyguards, to the misguided use of ‘bro code talk’ gone bad, and ending on a not-so-manly escapade while on a horse-back riding trip with friends, Hart covers a gamut of funny material and then some.
Even though he’s a comedian, Hart even shows his emotional side when he has a “moment” at the end of the movie as he earnestly and humbly thanks his followers for their loyalty and support over the years. Performing to sold out crowds over the world, Hart has become one of the biggest names in comedy today.
Immediately after the premiere, Hart took to the stage and addressed the audience, not only to thank them once again for the their support but also to candidly discuss the utter importance of digital media and marketing through platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Stressing how these platforms of social media not only played an integral part in the release of this movie, but also how they are such powerful vessels and can have an extremely influential role when it comes to the distribution, marketing, and even funding of projects that otherwise may not be given a chance by mainstream production and/or distribution companies.
Warning to prospective movie-goers though, if you are one to be offended by profanity and pervasive use of the “N-word,” you may want to refrain from seeing “Let Me Explain.” Not one to bite his tongue on any subject, Hart uses a ‘no holds barred’ approach in his delivery of stand up. Otherwise, be prepared to be thoroughly entertained by Hart’s comedy.
“Let Me Explain” opens up in theaters nationwide July 3rd. Watch the trailer here.
