Kevin Hart Partners With PokerStars To "Make Poker Fun" Again
What doesn't Kevin Hart do? The comedian, fitness enthusiast and mogul has been balancing what seems like a dozen jobs, including filming stand-up comedy specials, starring in his BET show Real Husbands of Hollywood, promoting his upcoming novel I Can't Make This Up: Life Lessons and hitting the court during NBA Celebrity All-Star Games. Adding another item to his to-do list, Hart recently partnered with PokerStars for the 2017 PokerStars Championship presented by Monte Carlo Casino.
The What Now? star has filmed several promotional videos with the online poker company, in which he boasts that he's going to dominate the competition and make playing poker a less serious experience while raising money for various charity organizations around the world.
“I am going to make poker fun, and working with PokerStars will give me the poker platform I need to do this,” Hart said. “I’m not going to tell you yet how we’re going to do it,” Hart added. “But I have some great ideas for bring poker to the people, while having fun.”
