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?

Prince Harry is coming to America yet again! This time it’s for the Invictus Games where wounded warriors compete in sports. The last time Harry was here TMZ photos had him in a bind. Simon Cowell is coming back to America too. So he and Harry made a deal with fans for shifting gears into a new grind.

Cowell joins the Judges Panel on America’s Got Talent (AGT). About his new role he tells the Hollywood Reporter “When you’re there, when you discover a star … you’ll never forget that moment.” They remind us of the best thing about having the most fun, games and value as a team player or business leader.

After spending 10 years in the British Army, Harry wanted to find ways to honor those he served with who were injured. So the idea of the Invictus Games was brought to life in 2014. While some might be dealing with a loss in their physical or mental condition, the event gives them a way to re-imagine their potential.

Harry hopes this will inspire people everywhere on expanding their options. For Cowell, his return to the American scene is a kind of professional reboot. He’s the creator/producer of AGT and many other talent programs. He feels it’s some good times wishing on a star, to follow dreams where they are in going far.

The thing that makes them similar yet different is their approach to reinventing themselves. Harry has changed the perception since his Vegas visit, while Cowell continues to change the game in TV ratings. It’s a lesson for pros, regular Jane’s & Joe’s on those special fun moments at work or in everyday roles.

The Prince is coming to town. Harry’s showing he’s grown. Here for Invictus Games with friends. Supporting them to the ends. Wounded warriors compete in sports. Helps them manage the hurts. Simon Cowell back at it too. They’re being tried and true. In showing fans a new grind. Long after a past bind.

Cowell joins panel of judges. On America’s Got Talent he nudges. About his role he says you never forget. Watching stars advance a simple project. Being there is like a Twitter moment. A winning formula and success component. The most fun, games and biz value. No matter where the performance venue.

After 10 years as British soldier. Harry’s ready to go bolder. To honor those injured in the trenches. As they move past the recovery benches. Some dealing with loss in physical condition. Invictus Games born to shift their vision. A way to re-imagine one’s potential. And maybe a new view of the providential.

Harry hopes it’s an inspiration. For people across every nation. In doing more to expand their option. Will Cowell’s return to the scene? Mean seeing more of his mean? But really it’s a reboot in positioning. As creator/producer of talent programming. Wishing on a star to follow new stars blossoming.

What makes them one and the same. Is how they’re reinventing their game. Harry’s new perception after Vegas trip. Cowell taking new risks to let it rip. He keeps raising the stakes in TV rating. With more opportunities for the taking. Lesson in special moments for the pros. Or everyday roles for Jane’s & Joe’s.
