Kevin Hart's "Laugh at my pain "becomes first American stand up comedy film to sell in West Africa + Audio interview



      Stand-up comedy specials often earn strong ratings on television and sell briskly on DVD, but rarely do they make it to the big screen.
          That’s what makes the success of “Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain” at the box office last  weekend all the more implausible. The film, comprised primarily of footage shot during one of the comedian’s shows at the Nokia Theater last February, opened last weekend in 99 theaters and collected $2 million. That amounts to a solid per-theater average of $20,000 for the movie, which played in 25 markets last  weekend including Los Angeles, Dallas and Atlanta.
     It was released on September 9, 2011 in West Africa as the very first stand-up comedy film to be released throughout the region through a partnership with Silverbird Cinemas and will  be released  in East Africa in the coming weeks.


     Celebregion.com had a phone chat with Kevin hart last night from Nashville , We asked  if he had been  to Nigeria before and he said no but he  cannot wait to be in Nigeria to perform live because he has been hearing a lot about Nigeria and his film doing well there .
