Comedian Kevin Hart will be at Resorts World in Las Vegas, March 17 & 18. The rider for his standup tour demands a lot – and I mean a LOT!
It includes a very specific stool onstage. It even gives a link where it can be purchased on Amazon and says, “substitutions will not be accepted.” One stool is as good as the next, right? NO! Not if you’re Kevin Hart!
He’s one of the biggest celebrities out there right now, and the rider for Kevin Hart’s Reality Check Tour sure says that, and means business! Kevin is VERY particular about where he sits, or puts his water, when he’s spouting – and shouting – his particular brand of comedy for the masses.
The document very clearly states that the only acceptable stool is a Winsome brand, 29-inch-tall, square leg, flat top model. The Rider even provides an Amazon link in case the venue needs to buy one. It says, quote, “The exact stool is important and substitutions will not be accepted. Please notify immediately if there are any issues.”
He’s also very particular about what he eats (we all are, right?), what he drinks, his mouthwash, the TV in his dressing room, and the additional room for whomever tags along.
I’ve been doing comedy a long time. I’m NO Kevin Hart – but I don’t know how a comedian can even utilize, eat, or drink all of the things included in his rider (which you can see below)!
I’ve been asked for many shows, what I might want in my dressing room, or green room. Umm, well… water. Oh, and maybe ice? Oh, and some cheese and fruit – you know, if it’s that kind of fancy. Usually I DO get some water, ice – even soda. And my cheese and fruit, on occasion.
Take a look below. you might all wish you were Kevin Hart. And also makes me think that I might need a new agent!
