Anything else coming out that we can look forward to? Kevin Hart: Well, you know comedy is what fuels my engine. Right now I am getting offers for television and movies but you know I have had some campaigns come up that I have been loyal to like the Jordan campaign, the Ford campaign, my tour has just been filmed as a movie and has kept me crazy busy and I am working on the marketing, producing and publishing side. In the meantime I might do a TV show or a movie but like I said my focus for me is my stand up., that’s what is fueling my career and that seems to be what is getting me to the next level. I don’t want to turn my back on what got me here. Humor Mill: A couple more questions here… Kevin Hart the business man most people don’t know about, can you explain to people what is going on behind the scenes with your brand, your name? Kevin Hart: In order to become a big name or to build your brand you have to stay “in house”. What I mean by that is that you have to self produce, to create for yourself, to create revenue for yourself. So I started a company, Hartbeat Productions, and through my company I will be Executive Producing, directing and starring in future films and projects for myself that now because of the relationships that I have made and because of the revenue that I have made on the road, now I am able to go to the studios and ask for certain things and I know I can get them because they will say ‘this guys track record speaks for itself, he has a following and since he has a following our investment will seem to come back’. You know, I am just working on building my brand right now. Humor Mill: Can you tell everybody out there what you have planned in your immediate future? Is there another tour? Another film? Kevin Hart: I have a film dropping called 35 & Ticking that is gonna drop real soon, I have Laugh AT My Pain coming out of course, and I am about to shoot a television show with FOX, my show with Comedy Central (I don’t know what is happening with that yet), like I said the Jordan campaign, the Ford campaign – we are about to shoot more ads for those. Other than that, nothing… Go to the site to see the complete interview!
