Just For Laughs is teaming up with evenko to bring Kevin Hart’s “What Now?” tour to the Bell Center as the first announced show for this summer’s festival in Montreal.

Hart, who was recently named the host for the roast of Justin Bieber on Comedy Central, has performed in Montreal four times prior to this summer’s engagement. He’ll also do a show in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre following the Just For Laughs fest on August 1st.

In the years since he first blew the roof off the JFL stage as a Just For Laughs New Face in 2001, Kevin Hart has exploded onto the scene as one of the most versatile comedic actors in both television and film. In the last year alone, he has starred on TV in Real Husbands of Hollywood, appeared in five major comedy films including Think Like a Man Too, Chris Rock’s Top Five, starred in The Wedding Ringer (which grossed over $58 million in its first four weeks), and filmed the highly anticipated Get Hard with Will Ferrell. Oh, and hosted SNL. Still, with this crazy schedule, he’s back with an outrageously anticipated brand new stand-up tour.

Tickets can be purchased through evenko on Friday, February 20th.

Hart will perform at Montreal’s Bell Centre on Friday, July 24th.
