Organizers at the Just For Laughs comedy festival are creating some early buzz for their milestone 40th anniversary edition in a big way.

It was recently announced that superstar comic Kevin Hart will be bringing his Reality Check Tour to the Bell Center on July 29 (show time at 8 p.m.) as part of the anniversary line-up. Hart last performed at the Bell Centre during the 2018 festival to a sold out crowd, and there is no doubt he will fill the venue once again.

Just For Laughs
Kevin Hart – Just For Laughs

Since his festival debut in 2001, Hart has become a one-man comedy empire on a grand scale. Consider these facts: he starred in 10 box office blockbuster movies that grossed a combined total of $4.23 billion around the world; he is the creator and chairman of his own digital comedy network called Laugh Out Loud; he is the founder and CEO of his own multi-platform production company called HartBeat Productions; his first book I Can’t Make This Up was a number 1 New York Times  best seller; he hosts his own bi-weekly radio show on Sirius XM called “Straight From The Hart”; and he will appear in two new films that will be released in the near future, Borderlands with Cate Blanchett and The Man From Toronto with Woody Harrelson and Kaley Cuoco.

Tickets for Kevin Hart’s Reality Check Tour at the Bell Centre are now on sale, and can be purchased at www.hahaha.com. The 40th anniversary edition of the Just For Laughs festival is being presented by Beneva, in collaboration with Loto Quebec.
