32-year-old Hart has become one of the biggest stand-ups in the world by tapping into the raw and autobiographical raw tradition of leather-suit-era Eddie Murphy. The Philly native's excellent 2011 concert film/album Laugh At My Pain features vivid bits about his father's cocaine addiction and his mother's funeral, and his most recent set, Let Me Explain, goes into detail about his recent divorce (he
jokes that it wasn't cheating that got him in trouble, it was lying about cheating). Unsurprisingly, he's huge with rappers; while hosting the VMA's last year he even made pulled off the difficult task of making
Drake laugh.
