NEW YORK, November 18, 2016 - Kevin Hart continues his travels across the country in search of fresh comedic voices as Comedy Central has renewed "Kevin Hart Presents: Hart of the City" for a second season, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central.

"In season two, we're covering even more ground to give fans a taste of the local flavor in comedy scenes across the country."

"We are pushing Kevin to develop a stronger work ethic," said Alterman.

Currently airing on Sundays at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, "Hart of the City" follows Kevin Hart through each destination as he seeks out the freshest and finest voices in the local stand-up scene and investigates the nuances that make it unique. Each episode features stand-up sets from a different group of local comedians with interstitial segments featuring Hart and those comedians discussing the comedy climate in their city. The first season visits Atlanta, Houston, Chicago, Sacramento, Miami, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Birmingham. Harry Ratchford is Co-Producer and Jonas Larsen and JoAnn Grigioni are the Executives in Charge for Comedy Central.

Kevin Hart is a tour de force in film, television and live entertainment. Hart's recent movie projects include the animated film "The Secret Life of Pets" (Illumination Entertainment); "Central Intelligence" (New Line Cinema and Universal Pictures), the year's biggest grossing live-action comedy; "Ride Along 2" (Universal), which grossed over $100 million worldwide; "The Wedding Ringer" (Screen Gems), and "Get Hard" (Warner Brothers).
