Today, comedian and actor Kevin Hart announced the addition of nine new North America shows in 2023 as part of his widely popular Reality Check Tour. The tour is adding two dates in Phoenix, Ariz. over Super Bowl weekend and seven dates across Canada including a show in Ottawa at Canadian Tire Centre on Friday, April 14.
Hart’s 2022 Reality Check tour was recently named the No. 1 Comedy Tour of the Year by Billboard and he was awarded the People’s Choice Award for Comedy Act of 2022. His 2022 tour included more than 80 shows, hitting cities such as Vancouver, Las Vegas, Montreal, Houston, Atlanta, Toronto, San Francisco and many more throughout the year.
Hailed as one of the highest-earning stand-up comedians of 2019 by Forbes, Hart sold out Crypto.com Arena as part of Netflix Is A Joke: The Festival. Additionally, his previous global comedy tour sold out over 100 arenas around the world, and he sold over one million tickets worldwide in 2018 during his Irresponsible Tour. Hart continued to break records with his hometown stand-up performance at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field during his What Now Tour, marking the first time a comedian sold out an NFL stadium in Philadelphia.
