This weekend Kevin Hart starred in an above-average "Saturday Night Live" and a below-average romantic comedy ("The Wedding Ringer," which came in at #2 on the box office). When it came to the former, he was saddled with some so-so sketches and truly exemplary digital short – one that focused on the formerly rough streets of Brooklyn falling to extreme gentrification (yes, you will hear Kevin Hart, in full-on gangster mode, say the words "artisanal mayonnaise place"). You can watch the video below.
In the sketch, Hart and two friends (played by Kenan Thompson and Jay Pharaoh) are standing on a street corner in Bushwick and acting pretty hood, talking about their thug life, which includes the new dog walking business one of them is running, a life-drawing class that somebody is taking, and how much they love gelato. Our new favorite put-down: "You're acting like someone put gluten in your muffin."
Just watch it and love it; it was certainly the highlight of the episode in our opinion and further evidence that Kevin Hart is one of the funniest human beings on the planet.
