US comedian and film-star Kevin Hart will be bringing his unique brand of humour to Auckland this December as part of his world tour.
Hart, the star of films such as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Central Intelligence, will be playing Spark Arena on December 11 as part of his Irresponsible Tour.
The 38-year-old is set to bring a fresh stage setup to the Auckland venue, playing in the middle of the arena surrounded by the crowd on all sides.

The Auckland show had earlier been announced in late January, but stated it was to be held in Auckland, Australia. The confusion has been cleared up with the new announcement of ticket sale dates today.
Tickets are likely to be at a premium for the on-off show when they go on sale on February 23 at midday.
Those wanting to get in early can take part in the Live Nation pre-sale which starts at midday on February 20.

More than 400 South Auckland students with the help of the choir master behind Disney's Moana have performed an inspiring rendition of the Oscar-nominated song 'This Is Me' - with just two hours to prepare.
The 400 strong choir are students from a summer programme called UniPrep which helps high school graduates prepare for their life after school whether it be in work or at university.
Every year choir master and judge of the The Naked Choir Igelese Ete trains the programme's students to sing and perform.
Performing in a choir is a way for the students "to get out of their comfort zone," Veronica Ng Lam Director of Strategic Projects and Initiatives at AUT told 1NEWS.
Ms Ng Lam, who has helped run the course since it began in 2015, says the choir rehearsed for two hours with Mr Ete before they recorded the video.
The video, posted to Facebook on Friday, has been watched more than 800,000 times and has been shared more than 15,000 times.
Ms Ng Lam says the students have been overwhelmed with the response to their cover of the song This Is Me from the move 'The Greatest Showman' starring Hugh Jackman.
