What can I say about this other than that this is a more personal comedy show for Comedian Kevin Hart. I am definitely rooting for the homeboy because he is from Philly (sue me, I am bias) and he doesn't disappoint in his first major motion picture release (set to come out on September 9th). Sure, we are used to him telling us silly stories about his wife, his son with the imaginary spider web arm, his crazy, just-out-of-prison Uncle and his Jesus-in-a-crisis-loving Muslim best friend. But this flick is about the his younger years - way before he was the little funny guy beefing it out in 40 Year old Virgin. In Laugh At My Pain, we get a rare glimpse of Hart home life. We meet his aunts, who helped to raise him. We learn about his drug addicted father (alright, alright, alright), who once almost accidentally killed him. And we discover why Hart doesn't like to hang with basketballers and other celebs anymore.
Hart, who was present for the screening, said that this film served as therapy, especially in the wake of his mother's death. And he even joked about that too, which only proves that there is no subject too out of bounds for Hart. This film was alot of fun, especially if you get to check it out in theaters full of folk, ready to have a good time. Oh and for my local folks, Laugh at My Pain reps Philly extra hard: from Max Steaks to Broad and Erie to Black and Noble. So for that reason alone, you got to support.
Laugh at My Pain is slated to be released nationwide on September 9th. But you can check out the newly released trailer below.
