Comedian, actor, producer, and repeat Stern Show guest Kevin Hart offers fans unprecedent access to his own life amid a tumultuous time in the trailer for his Netflix docu-series “Don’t F**k This Up,” arriving later this month.
The clip (above) begins with Hart telling a camera crew he’s landed the opportunity of a lifetime. “We are in Australia. News has just been given that I am hosting the Oscars,” he says (above).
But the dream gig brought with it a renewed focus on the comedian’s past homophobic jokes and tweets, resulting in a major controversy earlier this year “The public perception is, ‘He didn't want to apologize; therefore, he is homophobic,’” one of Kevin’s advisers explains in the trailer.
Created by Hart himself, the six-part documentary series attempts to shine a light on many aspects of the superstar’s life, from his life as a father, role model, and world-renowned comedian to his aforementioned Oscars controversy. “Don’t F**k This Up” also features interviews with Hart’s friends and family, personal anecdotes from the comic himself, and rare archival footage from his childhood and early stand-up days.
As Stern Show fans may remember, Kevin didn’t hesitate to open up about his childhood during his 2017 visit to the show. “My dad was the coolest dad ever, man,” he told Howard in between stories of borrowed speedboats, summer camp mix-ups, and stolen dogs. “It was the bad kind of cool.” Watch a clip from his sit-down with Howard (below).
“Kevin Hart: Don’t F**l This Up” premieres Dec. 27 on Netflix.
