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.

The cast say slipping back into their roles after 11 years was like "riding a bike".
A show that first aired in 1998 about Will and his best friend Jack, flatmate Grace and her kooky drunken colleague Karen broke barriers and paved the way for LGBTQ characters.
"I remember feeling sense of trepidation, we could be off the air in three episodes and also the writing I felt was very cautious. I remember after the pilot word got back that 30 per cent of people who watched the pilot didn't know Will was gay" Debra Messing [Grace] said.
Although they love their characters on Will & Grace, they say a downside of the show is fans asking them to repeat their catch phrases.
When asked if they love New Zealand Messing said, "my mother said it was her favourite place on earth when she visited, most beautiful place ever."
The cast then serenaded 1 NEWs reporter Emma Keeling singing:
"but I didn't have the opportunity, but I will visit any time…call me up…(singing) call out my name ..in that weird accent you have and we'll come running…on an 18 hour flight…23 hours…."
