Kevin Hart is no doubt the hottest comedian at this time and the funnyman is adding to his stock by landing the job to host this years’ MTV Video Music Awards.
Last year, the comedian opened the MTV Video Music Awards, but he wasn’t the official host of the show. While on stage on that show, he joked that if he was the host he “would’ve dropped one million dollars from the ceiling and gotten Oprah back on the air.”
This year is different though, the station official announced that Hart would be the host. MTV’s change of Hart (play of word) may have come from the recent success he’s been having since the release of his hit comedy tour film Laugh at My Pain. The funnyman has also recently worked on several movies including Think Like a Man, The Five-Year Engagement, Valet Guys, End Of The World, and About Last Night.
The comedian star announced in a video alongside Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, that he would host the show. Hart tells the pair he’s hosting and that the paparazzi are trying to get a look at “the new ‘it’ couple,” even though they would actually be a trio. He says, “I’m talking about Kev-Ye-Kim.”
