2.0 star rating Cooper from Tampa, Florida


Thought it was just us, until I read these reviews. Our show started 60 minutes late, phones and watches were locked in bags. The warm up comics laughed about the late start (sadly the late start is used as material for their acts at our expense). People were pissed about the late start and spent the extra time downing drinks and getting irritated. There was a major fight that broke out behind us during the KH set. He stopped the show and made jokes about “old white people fighting”… Guess he didn’t realize the fight happened because a drunk guy punched a drunk woman… Many of us felt unsafe without having the ability to communicate with emergency services… Reading these reviews from the Tampa show makes me realize that our bad experience is actually part of his nation wide tour experience… My suggestion is to save your money and wait for the Netflix show. We’ll never pay for last nights experience again. #kevinhartsuckedathertz2022

Started late, chairs were a joke on floor area, patrolling was ridiculous, started late, bunch of drunk talk on the stage. I didn’t find Kevin funny and one of the guys from the plastic cup cowboys whatever was plain rude and his jokes were frankly pure assault. He has some type of show or a radio show and I am really questioning people who listen to that. We left early. We thought that when Kevin will get on the stage with all that pompous lighting and music the fun and laughter will begin- nope was boring and we just left. Super overpriced for a bunch of dudes complaining about women, plastic surgery, and Los Angeles news. Also the jokes we’re making on an edge of racism and definitely a whole lot of sexism. They probably feel like celebrities and think they are entitled but I doubt they are that tough in real life, I mean common… Drove 2 hours, no parking and left early and I am not 40 as they suggested in the beginning

I saw KH at the Golden 1 center last night. My story is much like others. I absolutely LOVE KH, but the entire night was chaos, unorganized and his stage appearance was approximately 30-45 minutes. The show started late, it seems the Plastic Cup Boys were definitely on stage longer than KH. Once he was on stage, about 10 minutes into his act, he stopped and started "scolding" a guy sitting in the front row, warning him "I have warned you twice, if I have to warn you a third time I am going to start capping on you" then he did....started capping on the guy and camera man put the guy up on the screen (embarrassing for him) As others have said, this was not Kevin Hart at his best. I have seen ALL Kevin Hart specials, movies, etc....and this one just did not meet expectations.......EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!

*This show felt OFF & a bit cringeworthy. I was so pumped to see Kevin for the first time, but can now see the celebrity has gone to his head... 1. Kevin is best on TV - He has a great stage presence live, but treats his audience poorly. Harsh security and no phone policy makes it the perfect breeding ground for attacks to go unreported. 2. Copied Material - Kevin told an awfully similar joke to George Lopez show back in 2018 Wilbur Theater, Boston. That was hugely disappointing. 3. Opening acts were basiccc - I've listened to ALL types of comedy...But when a comedian has no depth and talks about their s3× life for a straight hour it gets OLD and creepy. It wasn't comedy, just kinda gross. 4. Kevin offers you to party with him afterwards & further markets his tequila...So that happens.

I don't know when people got so famous and amazing that they decided to start collecting cell phones and wasting extra hours of my life. I'm staying home and watching on TV. Just not fun to go and see big name comics live any more. 2 extra hours of waiting for a show that is not that long!

1.0 star rating Q from New Orleans, Louisiana


I went to the show in New Orleans on 10/18/18 and it was tragic. The entire experience was very bad from the beginning, and I had such high hopes for it to be amazing seeing him in person. The security was over the top, they escorted people out of the building as soon as they walked in, just for texting or having a phone visible. Multiple people did not hear the staff say that there was a “No Phone Use” policy for this event. I was one of the many people that were escorted. Before being escorted, I had watched the opening acts and then I got a text; my phone lit up in between my legs and I looked down. Within seconds, an officer tried to escort me out for cell phone use. It was ridiculous. The opening acts were not funny, I chuckled about twice. I sat there, not amused in the slightest. Stay home, watch his old comedy stand ups, it’s the only time he’d ever be funny, since his funniness is fading away and he’s reusing old material. He’s simply not in his prime anymore.

1.0 star rating Michelle from Detroit, Michigan


First time at a KH show. The cell phone announcements were rediculous. Why is he so worried about his material getting out. I know why, because its recycled and not funny. My gay friend was ejected from the show, despite showing the 15 year ild security cop that his ell phone was in his back pocket and powered off. They threatened to tackle and arrest a 5 foot 4 sweet gay man. We were afraid for him and 600.00 of tickets were wasted. In general everyone in our section said they felt like the military was on duty. My friend is considering taking things to the next level. The 1 st comedian also bragged that at the cleveland show they had “ thrown out “ 200 people. Shoukd be the Thug tour. Never again. Sounds like the teviews agree.
