Kevin Hart On The Funny Thing About Women, Love and More
ED: NOTE: In my pursuit to evolve UntilIGetMarried.com into something that doesn’t resemble other (great!) relationship/lifestyle sites, I am starting a brand new interview series with comedians entitled, “The Funny Thing About…”. I like comedy. I like talking about relationships. So I decided to marry the two by asking comedians what makes them laugh about relationships and all the stuff that goes with it. They don’t have to be funny, just insightful. To kick things off, I start with one of my favorite comedians, Kevin Hart.
Most people are going to recognize Hart for his memorable cameo in “40 Year Old Virgin” or more recently his role as the funeral director in Chris Rock’s “Death At A Funeral”, or maybe his hilarious eBay commercials. But Hart is his most funny when he’s doing his stand-up.
For those who have never seen his stand up specials, “Grown Little Man” and the more recent, “Seriously Funny”, do yourself a favor and watch them immediately. Hart’s comedy touches on his family, most often his relationship with his woman and children. One of my favorite Hart jokes is when he’s talking about how he hates when his woman always wants to argue with him while she’s naked. Calling from his hotel while on his “Laugh At My Pain” tour, Hart broke down the funny things about women, love, dating, and other relationship topics for UIGM. Read on, enjoy, then click on the link at the bottom to find out if and when Hart is hitting your city on his “Laugh At My Pain” tour.
THE FUNNY THING ABOUT LOVE
Love? What’s funny about it to me, honestly, is the ups and downs. When you first hear the word, people expect it to be the white picket fence and the puppies. The reality is, it’s a commitment; it becomes a job to a certain degree. Love shouldn’t feel like work but some women make it feel like work because women go on emotions, men go on reality. For a man, it’s like, “Look babe, yes, love is good but love ain’t gonna pay the damn bills, so I gotta get my little a** on out of here and get this job done.”
THE FUNNY THING ABOUT WEDDINGS
My wedding was hilarious, because it was in Vegas, and I got married with a blazer and some jeans on. I didn’t do the big massive size wedding with family, friends. It was just like, “Hey, you wanna do it? Okay. Let’s go now.” I think the smarter people that get married realize, Hey, rather than spend all this money on a wedding, let’s put this money into a house, into our future, into our kids.
THE FUNNY THING ABOUT SEX
The more you open up the nastier you find out your partner is. The shocking details you find out about a person as the relationship goes on, that’s when it becomes funny. When you’re talking about a female and you’re talking about the things that a female does and the level of freakiness, it’s in every woman. It just takes a dumb guy to act like it doesn’t exist. If you think your lady is innocent, that makes you a bigger fool. Every woman was a h*e to somebody, that’s what I tell myself, that way I’m not shocked.
THE FUNNY THING ABOUT DATING
The whole experience of getting to know someone over and over again, those are the things that make you laugh.You have to start over and think, Oh God, I wonder if she uses the bathroom with the door open or I wonder if she’s one of those women who likes to talk in the morning with her breath all funky and her mouth all open.
THE FUNNY THING ABOUT WOMEN
Anything a woman does or goes through, she expects a man to know and understand, so a woman expecting me to understand them can make me laugh. In my relationship, it’s simple. Nine times out of 10, our arguments came from a point where my woman would say, “Hey, this is how I am, Kevin. You know that. You should understand that.” For me it’s like, “So what? I don’t care.” If I think something is wrong, it’s wrong. Don’t expect me not to think it’s wrong because you say this is how you are and women do this. NO! That’s not how arguments work.
THE FUNNY THING ABOUT ARGUING
I argue over everything. I argue just because I can, just because it’s my house. Any man should understand that. Sometimes you have to create turmoil in your house, I’ve done it for years. There is no love without hate. You have to go through some angry points, that’s how you appreciate each other more, when you piss each other off the most.
