Before Fame

After graduating from George Washington High School, Hart briefly attended Community College of Philadelphia and moved to New York City. He then moved to Brockton, Massachusetts and got a job as a shoe salesman. He began a career as a stand-up comedian after performing on an amateur night at a Philadelphia club.


Hart’s first performance was at The Laff House in Philadelphia as Lil Kev, which did not go well. His career suffered a slow start, as he was booed offstage multiple times, even when a piece of chicken was thrown at him.

Family Life
