The news these days feel like things are spinning out of control. There’s Russia, Supreme Court and mid-term elections on people’s minds. Desperate times call for funny measures. Maybe that’s how Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish see things. They’re turning comedy upside down like two night-school clowns.

They’re busy doing the promo tour for their new movie Night School. Written and produced by Hart, he also plays a major role in the flick. Hart’s comedy tour has been selling out large venues like a Rockstar. He’s doing what it takes to ‘Hustle Hart’ with ‘laugh-out-loud’ projects that have social media on fiya!

They can point to a big-screen movie that helped raise their film cred. Hart played a key role in Think Like a Man while Haddish was the breakout star in Girls Trip. They’re learning from each other in their careers. We can do the same in watching how they act like a showbiz player and think like a first-rate brand.

Some say it’s their likeability that’s got fans over-joyed. A lot can be said about the ‘lead story’ of their lives. It’s what’s hot that leads news. But there’s something to their ‘real story’ that reveals what makes them winners. It’s the ‘hustle love’ for what they do that has fans feeling good through and through.

From some of Hart’s upbeat motivation posted on social media we get clues for what makes him tick. He might put it this way: “how you’re wired says something about how your goals and dreams get inspired, become reality and not get tired.”  But there’s more. Their media interviews show us how to:

  1. Laugh Away

For them it’s been a grind for many years on the comedy circuit. The art of telling jokes took time to fine-tune. But when the jokes are from their own life it comes across even more real. That’s why folks can laugh away through the ups & downs, good & bad, happy & sad, mess-ups & fess-ups of celebrity life.

  1. Press play

Hart and Haddish have a way of making the serious funny and the funny serious. They ‘play with it’ which makes their unique flava get fans over the blues. There’s an element of play in their work that might fool you on the surface. But behind the scenes major biz moves are happening on speed dial.

  1. Earn that pay

Haddish says she’s been learning a lot from Hart about how to grow her brand. It’s about finding new and innovative ways to ‘monetize the fun.’ Maybe what Hart has been able to show her is how the marketplace works to earn that pay in business-to-business and business-to-consumer dollars.

  1. Make someone’s day

A few years back, Hart heard that one of his fans who was a school bus driver was suspended for taking a selfie with him. When word got back he made a short video to the fan’s employer asking that she get her job back. Some of their authentic appeal is in making someone’s day along the way.

It’s as if they’re wired with a laugh-track mind. Plus, Hart’s school of success says to block out the noise to become your best self. Haddish jokes about feeling like Oprah’s voice plays in hear head as she gets up out of bed. They know even if you’re not taken seriously at first or seen as a threat, let folks see you as an asset.

Tip: Not everybody can sellout stadiums like a Rockstar. But at least with some ‘hustle love’ we can ‘press play,’ earn that pay and make someone’s day.

Talkback: Is Katt Williams still hating on Tiffany Haddish or did Kevin Hart put him in his place?

There’s ruffled feathers and choppy waters in Cavaliers land. When news broke that Kyrie Irving wanted out, some gasped like was heard in Congress. Not clear if the story will be fully told before he leaves. But on the ‘Girls Trip’ score, Tiffany Haddish and Regina Hall know about being a ‘trip without the baggage.’

They’re flying high with a box office hit. Haddish landed the role in breakout fashion. They really wanted a household name actor. According to Vibe she sent word back to the producers saying “Tell them I’ve had a name since 1979. I was born with a name. You tell them I need to come in.” It was like her ‘one shot.’

Her rise to fame is a case of how people take stock of their story to achieve new glory. After some rough years as a teenager trying to play mother to younger siblings, she realized that making people laugh was important to her. She crossed paths with Kevin Hart who set her mental wheels turning on setting goals.

She talks about the upward climb in her new TV special on going from Hood to Hollywood. With the sassy mantra of She’s Ready as her tailwind, Haddish explains how developing self-love and self-acceptance moved her closer to showbiz relevance. It’s one of those ‘Yea I made it but not on my own’ stories.

Haddish has had to get past low moments to have these high moments. Hall, who’s put in her time as well, also helps others move past things that can derail your sail. No matter what, letting go of the baggage means not being bitter, but better or not being ‘so street’ where people can’t see the ‘so sweet.’

That she could make it pop. Her name’s been around for a minute. So she wanted to win it. Kinda that one shot. Make it big, hit the spot.

Rise to fame by taking stock. Of what her skills got on lock. In how to use her story. For achieving new glory. Some rough teenage years. To be mommy and sista for her peers. Making people laugh her secret thing. Not trying to dance or sing. Kevin Hart game her a reason. To set goals and expect her season.

Talks about the upward climb. Trying to make nickels and a dime. New TV special ‘bout her days in the hood. And not giving up to make good. Sassy mantra of ‘She’s Ready’ her tailwind breeze. Now doing it big and with ease. Where self-love and more acceptance. Moved things closer to showbiz relevance.

Haddish going from lows to highs. From rock-bottom to blue skies. Hall putting in grind time too. Seeing their dreams come thru. Advice on things that can derail. Or put holes in your sail. No matter what came their way. Hard to carry baggage and play. Not bitter but better. Where ‘so street’ seen as ‘so sweet.’
