Mark your calendar: Kevin Hart, Jim Gaffigan
Kevin Hart returns to Savannah May 12

Standup comedian Kevin Hart, whose recent concert film Laugh at My Pain was a runaway hit, returns to the Johnny Mercer Theatre May 12. Tickets for the 7 p.m. performance are $57.50 through

Hart was also in the independent comedy Let Go, which premiered last fall at the Savannah Film Festival.

Also on sale now are tickets ($39.75, $49.75) to see comic Jim Gaffigan in the Mercer Theatre – on Aug. 10! (Nothing like making those plans early).

Gaffigan, the guy who makes those “audience asides” in a high-pitched voice, and riffs for hours on how much  he loves to eat Hot Pockets, has a new standup show he calls Mr. Universe.
