This year has been an incredible year for comedian Kevin Hart.

With the release of his memoir “I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons” that debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list, his work as title character in “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” and his upcoming “Jumanji” reboot, Hart seems unbeatable.

Hart is bringing his comedic talent back to Macon and the city is roaring with excitement, so much that there was a second performance added to the tour. Hart will be performing in Macon Sept. 9 and Sept. 10 at 7 p.m.

Both shows will be held at the Macon City Auditorium and will be 90 minutes to 2 hours long. There is no age requirement and tickets can be purchased on the Macon Centreplex website. Prices range from $48 to $78.

“We are pleased for the opportunity for Macon to have a legendary comedian and to provide them with two entertaining experiences,” said Rod Freeman, box office supervisor.

Mercer students were among the Macon residents rushing to purchase show tickets.

Sophomore Michaela Jones said she is excited Hart is bringing his humor to Macon.

“Macon is already a great and growing city, and Kevin Hart’s appearance will definitely give it the spotlight to keep that going. It’ll be an entertaining experience for his fans in the area too,” Jones said.
