Kevin Hart returns to Netflix to recap his 2019
Staff Reporter | On 24, Nov 2019Reading time: 3 mins
Kevin Hart is returning to Netflix this December to recap the controversial events of 2019 from his perspective.
The comedian made headlines early this year over controversy about his Twitter feed from years ago. Hart was all set to host the Oscars, but tweets came to light from 2010 and 2011 in which he used homophobic words in a pejorative context. He addressed the comments in another tweet, but was criticised for not apologising for his behaviour, and the resulting furore led to him stepping down from the Oscars gig altogether.
Now, after a Netflix special in April, the actor and comic is returning to the streaming service to give his side of the story again. The six-part docuseries, called Don’t F–k This Up, will follow his day-to-day life, as he tackles trying to be a father, role model and businessman, and carrying out damage control following the homophobia allegations.
Hart may also address the other major incident in his life this year: a car accident in September that he has posted about on social media since, talking of how it changed his perspective on life.
Hart has described Don’t F**ck This Up as “a hell of a rollercoaster”, covering “peaks, hills, valleys, ups, downs” and promising to be as “as raw, as transparent as you could be”.
Hart’s Hartbeat Productions will produce alongside Lionsgate, Makemake, 3 Arts Entertainment, and Magical Elves. The series will premiere on 27th December. For more on what else is coming to Netflix in December 2019, click here.
Irresponsible: Kevin Hart heads to Netflix this April
16th March 2019
Kevin Hart is heading back to Netflix this April with a new stand-up special.
Hart is no stranger to Netflix, having recorded and released Kevin Hart’s Guide to Black History on the streaming service last month, a semi-educational special featuring Tiffany Haddish, Lil Rel Howery, and Weird Al Yankovic. He is also no stranger to the big screen, with the comic having made the transition to Hollywood, appearing in Ride Along and Ride Along 2, Get Hard, Central Intelligence, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and, most recently, Night School.
The comedian, though, has mostly made headlines this year over controversy about his Twitter feed from years ago. Hart was all set to host the Oscars last month, but tweets came to light from 2010 and 2011 in which he used homophobic words in a pejorative context. He addressed the comments in another tweet, but was criticised for not apologising for his behaviour, and the resulting furore led to him stepping down from the Oscars gig altogether.
Nonetheless, the comedian is still keeping busy, this week announcing he’s releasing his first Netflix stand-up set. Titled Irresponsible, the special was recorded at London’s The O2 as part of his recent tour of the same name. From marital missteps to dangerous thrills in Aspen, it sees Hart flip his shortcomings into laughs, addressing friends, family and irresponsible behaviour.
They join a number of other specials released on, but not recorded for, Netflix, including Serious Funny, What Now?, Let Me Explain and Laught at My Pain, as well as his Guide to Black History. Irresponsible will be released on Tuesday 2nd April, he announced on Twitter:
