Last night, one of Kevin Hart’s biggest career moments happened back in his hometown of Philadelphia. In front of a reported 53,000 people he became the first comedian to headline an actual comedy show. Months prior, the announcement of the the upcoming show was made, which he then followed with early visit to the Philadelphia Eagles’s Lincoln Financial Field. As planned Kevin took to the stage at the arena, and performed for all those in attendance apart of his ‘What Now’ tour. Of course making sure the moment didn’t go undocumented, the performance was filmed for his newest comedy special. We did come across a few photos of the night, and now historic moment. Congrats.
