Kevin Hart burst onto the scene and has become one of the most versatile comedy actors in film and television. He can most recently be seen in Death at a Funeral, a remake of the 2007 British movie of the same name, alongside Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan and Martin Lawrence. Previously, Hart was seen on the big screen in the 20th Century FOX comedy Meet Dave opposite Eddie Murphy and in Dimension Films’ action comedy spoof Superhero Movie opposite Tracy Morgan and Regina Hall.  He also co-starred alongside Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson in Fool’s Gold.  His biggest break came when he landed the lead in MGM’s Soul Plane opposite Tom Arnold, Method Man and Snoop Dogg. Hart’s recent film credits include Not Easily Broken, Extreme Movie, Drillbit Taylor, Epic Movie, The Last Stand, Scary Movie 4, In the Mix and The 40 Year Old Virgin. Also, he’ll soon be seen in the Meet the Fockers sequel set to be released December 2010.

In January 2009, Hart premiered his new one-hour comedy special I’m a Grown Little Man on Comedy Central. The special debuted as one of the highest rated specials for the network. He recently took over as host of BET’s classic stand-up comedy series Comic View: One Mic Stand when the show re-launched in 2008.  Hart follows in the footsteps of past hosts such as D.L. Hughley and Cedric the Entertainer. Hart’s other television credits include ABC’s The Big House which he also executive produced and wrote and recurring roles on Love, Inc., Barbershop and Undeclared.
 
Hart debuted on amateur night at a Philadelphia comedy club and was insistently hooked.  He quit his job as a shoe salesman and began performing full-time at such clubs as The Boston Comedy Club, Carolines, Stand-Up NY, The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. However, it was his first appearance at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival that led to work in such feature films as Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3 and Along Came Polly opposite Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston.  With his passion for stand-up intact, Hart continues to tour the country to sold-out audiences.

Kenny Chesney’s “fans can count on his shows to be fun, fun, fun” (LA Times), and they can prepare to see “how deep this Country megastar’s talent really runs” (Chicago Tribune) as Chesney announces the first leg of what will be his biggest tour in five years.  Country’s top-drawing act and the only artist in any genre to sell over a million tickets for eight consecutive summers will perform live at Mohegan Sun Arena on Friday, April 8th and Saturday, April 9th with special guests Billy Currington and Uncle Kracker.  Both shows will begin at 8:00pm

The man the Associated Press calls “among the hardest charging acts on the road” is already excited about returning to the stage.  “We’re going to be playing new songs and lots of old favorites, and I can already tell it’s going to be a lot of fun,” says Chesney. “I can’t wait to get back in front of my fans.”

Chesney took a break from the road in 2010 to record his new album Hemingway’s Whiskey (BNA Records), which entered the Billboard 200 at #1 (his sixth album to achieve that feat) and to produce The Boys of Fall, the documentary about high school football now available for pre-order at walmart.com and in Walmart beginning November 9th.
