Kevin Hart tickets on sale same day Aug, 2 Stockton Arena show announced

Kevin Hart, a comedian who’s been scoring roles in major box-office movies, does his stand-up routine Aug. 2 at Stockton Arena.
Tickets already are on sale. They’re priced at $45, $65, $85 and $125 (before surcharges).
This is a LiveNation show ¬ a rarity in Stockton ¬ and a fairly big deal. Simultaneously announcing shows/ticket sales is a tactic used by artists such as the late Prince to helps shut down scalpers. First time it’s been necessary here.
The arena configuration will be at concert maximum. Usually not fully determined until “end” stage is “in place” at the 10,000-seat, SMG-managed facility.
Hart, a 37-year-old native of Philadelphia, is embarked on a national “What Now?” tour.
Perhaps that’s a slightly sardonic term. It’s the name of a one-man film that’s being released this year.
That follows “Ride Along 2,” a sequel to 2014’s “Ride Along”; “Central Intelligence”; and a voicing role in “The Secret Life of Pets” (as “Snowball”).
In 2015, he appeared in “The Wedding Ringer” and teamed with Will Ferrell in “Get Hard.” They’ve generated $230 million in ticket sales.
Since 2002, Hart’s amped-up his career with 39 films. He got started on television that same year and has had roles in 26 shows, three of which were stand-up specials, including “Laugh at My Pain” (2011).
He’s been a part of the “Scary Movie” series and gained attention in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” (2005), “Little Fockers” (2010) and “The Five-Year Engagement” (2012).
Hart helped create BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” acting as himself, and has hosted NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” twice.
“Captain Underpants” is due in 2017 (he’ll be “George Bard’s voice). He’s also released two albums.
Hart’s developed a distinctive comic voice during a 15-year career. He was a shoe salesman in Brockton, Massachusetts, before deciding to be funny for a living.
An admirer of Chris Rock, Hart found his comedic footing by digging into his own insecurities: “It has to be an open book,” he has said. “That is a book that’s being written.”
He’s won nine awards, including three NAACP Image Awards in 2012, when he was entertainer of the year.
