Kevin Hart: Reality Check

VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena | Downtown Jacksonville

Although he’s enjoyed massive success as an actor, producer and entrepreneur, Kevin Hart is, first and foremost, one of the top funnymen of his generation. Hart’s 2020 Netflix comedy special, the seventh hour-long stand-up special of his career, broke streaming records. He returns to the stage for a new four-month tour that stops in Jax this weekend. Cell phones will be stowed away at the venue’s entrance (it’s one of those comedy shows). The event starts at 7 p.m. Get tickets here
