Kevin Hart To Be Honored As “Comedic Genius” At MTV Movie Awards


Kevin Hart’s role as Roast Master at the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber is only one of his hilarious gigs that prompted MTV to reveal special news.

MTV announced today that the comedian-actor will be presented the “Comedic Genius Award” by late-night TV personality Jimmy Kimmel during the 2015 MTV Movie Awards held in Los Angeles on April 12.

Known for his raw and unfiltered comedy, Hart continues to pursue his passion for stand-up with country-wide tours that entertain sold-out audiences, while still finding time to rack-up box-office favorites like The Wedding Ringer and Ride Along.

Additional nominees include Jennifer Lopez, Zoe Saldana, Rosario Dawson and Chris Rock. Fans can check out the nominees and cast votes for their favorites via the website through Saturday, April 11.
