WME Signs Kevin Hart in All Areas

Comedian, actor, producer and entrepreneur Kevin Hart and his Hartbeat banner have signed with WME for representation in all areas, the agency announced on Thursday. WME previously represented Hart for comedy touring and is now expanding his relationship with the agency.

Hart will continue to develop, produce and star in feature films, television, commercials and podcasts. The move to WME comes as Hart and Hartbeat continue to expand their portfolio of multi-platform IP.

Hart — named by Billboard as the highest grossing comedian in 2023 — recently announced his “Acting My Age” tour, a new intimate tour with tickets going on general sale Friday. Last month, he received the Kennedy Center’s annual Mark Twain Prize for American Comedy, as the 25th recipient and the youngest honoree to date. Hart has received multiple Grammy and Emmy award nominations over his career. He is also a two-time New York Times best-selling author.

A successful entrepreneur, Hart is chairman of Hartbeat, which released 23 projects last year across TV, film, digital and audio. The company boasts strategic partnerships with NBCUniversal, Netflix, SiriusXM, Sundance Institute, P&G, Walmart, Chase, Draft Kings and more.

His entrepreneurial endeavors also include acting as chairman of his VC firm Hartbeat Ventures. He is a founding partner in premium tequila brand Gran Coramino, plant-based quick serve restaurant Hart House and nutritional wellness brand VitaHustle.

Hart continues to be represented by 3 Arts, Schreck Rose Dapello Adams Berlin & Dunham and Haley Hileman.
