The news comes as we’re just a week away from Kevin Hart’s third Netflix Original standup hitting Netflix on November 17th. Entitled Kevin Hart: Zero F**ks Given, the special is dubbed as “A Netflix Comedy Event” and promises to be his biggest entry on Netflix yet. His other Original stand-ups Irresponsible and What Now? are still on Netflix.
Kevin Hart has also collaborated with Netflix on another comedy project last year entitled Kevin Hart’s Guide to Black History which received very mixed reviews with Hart sitting down with kids to talk through Black history.
Beyond those projects, there are also rumors Kevin Hart is set to appear in a feature comedy film for Netflix entitled Me Time and with Chris Pratt rumored to also be involved.
