Kevin Hart was hit with a chicken wing during his initial stand-up routine

Despite garnering mammoth success in the field of stand-up comedy, it didn’t come off easy for Kevin Hart, as his initial shows weren’t that well received. Following his slow start, the actor admitted that once someone threw a piece of a chicken wing at him to express their distaste for his performance, which wasn’t a pleasant experience for an uprising comedian. However, he jokingly clarified that despite being hit with a chicken wing, there weren’t any boos from the crowd. He said,

“You Know, I don’t, I didn’t get booed offstage, that’s aggressive. I did get hit with a piece of chicken though, that’s factual. But they didn’t boo me. The chicken just landed and I felt it was the best decision to get off the stage after the buffalo sauce got in my eye. It’s pretty tough to finish a joke when you got goddamn Habanero sauce in your eye. So I left, but I didn’t get booed, No boo!”

Despite this demoralizing experience, the buffalo sauce wasn’t enough to keep Hart down for long. He soon found his footing in comedy and went on to win several shows and even cement his place as an A-lister in Hollywood. However, comedy isn’t the only field the actor has expertise in.
