On the heels of his co-starring role in the hit movie Think Like a Man, Kevin Hart announced today that he will extend his “Let Me Explain” tour through the end of this year. Hart has already performed for more than 334,000 fans during the 2011 and 2012 run, and in the fall, the wildly successful tour moves from theaters to arenas, including two stops in London in September. Tickets for the extended dates will go on sale June 15 through TicketMaster and LiveNation.

Hart burst onto the scene as one of the industry’s most versatile comedians, and now he’s blowing up fast. In September of last year, he released Laugh At My Pain, the feature film version of his comedy tour of the same name. The movie grossed $7 million, and the tour made Hart the best selling comedian on Ticketmaster. The LAMP DVD hit double Platinum status in February, after being on sale for one month. His Comedy Central special Seriously…Funny was the highest rated comedy of 2010, and the DVD has gone triple Platinum.
