Kevin Hart is The Worst Best Comedian

Kevin Hart

Despite box office success and the approval of millions of fans, Kevin Hart is the worst best comedian currently dominating the box office. While certainly unbeloved by film critics and comedic peers, Kevin Hart occupies a place in Hollywood reserved for the likes of Adam Sandler, Carlos Mencia and Dane Cook. His comedic “styling” is derived entirely from the already stale and overwhelmingly trite combination of shouting incoherent nonsense and making funny faces. This sort of performance often makes an audience want to laugh at, rather than with, the performer.

On the modern day gladiatorial arena that is Twitter, Kevin has been officially called out by fellow comedian Mike Epps, who stated in his Twitter feed that Kevin Hart was overrated as a comedian. Epps stated further that in the entertainment business, talent is often forced upon the audience. This allegation actually provides insight into what could be the reason behind Kevin Hart’s popularity. The Twitter beef slowly escalated between the two, simultaneously devolving into snide comments tossed back and forth.

Coasting this year on the success of the January release Ride Along, Kevin Hart proved that he had the fan base necessary to make a movie financially successful. Despite the fact that January has been deemed by astute moviegoers as the month where Hollywood chooses to release its worst upon audiences, according to IMDB, Ride Along raked in an impressive 134 million dollars as of April 11. However, financial success does not equate to critical. According to critics on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes, the movie scored a dismal eighteen percent approval rating. One can also find on Rotten Tomatoes that the release date for a sequel has already been set, slated for January 2016. Soon, Kevin Hart’s new movie Think Like a Man Too will be unleashed upon audiences this summer and will likely receive the same sort of critical scorn/financial success as Ride Along.

Kevin Hart is the worst best comedian simply because his style of comedy is far too simplistic, which unfortunately translates to unrivaled success. In the both satirical and insightful Titanic movie review uploaded on RedLetterMedia, the character Mr. Plinkett states that movies which are carefully crafted to appeal to the majority of audiences do so by pandering to their most average senses. Mr. Plinkett goes on to state that this is because moviegoers don’t like to be challenged intellectually or emotionally by movies. American cinema is a business, plain and simple. Therefore, since Kevin Hart does not challenge audiences intellectually in any way, one can assume that this is the reason for his success. His comedic styling is incredibly marketable. It’s hard to see him as a terrible comic due to his popularity amongst his fans as well as the success of his movies and standup comedy specials

Kevin Hart is the worst best comedian, because while he certainly does not have any sort of edge or originality to his style, he is a fantastic entertainer. Audiences love him simply because his shtick is easy to grasp, which makes him highly marketable. Mike Epps’ accusation hits the proverbial nail on the head. On a personal level, Kevin Hart might just be one of the most interesting and exciting people to meet, but on a critical level, Hart is simply another dime-a-dozen comic who will most likely disappear into obscurity.

    Kevin Harts probably the most over-rated person to hit tv since well ever. He’s not funny, hes not a good entertainer, and he’s all loud noises. You folks must be brain dead to think hes funny but then again, folks enjoy watching Honey Boo Boo

    ” he is a fantastic entertainer. Audiences love him simply because his shtick is easy to grasp”

    Isn’t that the most important thing?

    I don’t want to watch someones comedy routine where I have to think to get the joke, I want to be able to laugh because they’re funny right away and not think about the joke.

    Opinion by me.

    I may oray not agree with Mike comments of Kevin but like both comics. Mike I think you are more funnier than Kevin and on the flip side I think that Kevin is more funnier than Mike in the movies. Mike to me is the next Richard Pryor while Kevin is the next short Eddie Murphy. Both comics are great in their own rights. What I want to know is that what in the hell has Carlos Mencia done to be mentioned in this article

    Mike Epps has never challenged our intellects he’s just mad. Kevin Hart is an entertainer. His job is only to entertain.
