Earlier this month, Will Packer Productions and Universal Pictures dropped the Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish ‘Night School’ trailer. The film’s release date has been set for September 28, 2018. It was just a matter of time before this comedy kingpin combo collaborated on a hilarious box office hit.
The comedians go way back, helping each other out with their early careers in the comedy game. Their backstory is strongly rooted in the foundation of camaraderie. Both stars have shed light on a story regarding Hart helping Haddish during a time when she struggled with homelessness:
Hart discussed on social media, “Listen to how crazy life works – 8 to 9 years ago, Tiffany Haddish was homeless and living out of her car. I had no idea until I saw a shitload of clothes in her car outside of a comedy club in LA. I asked her what was going on and she down-played the situation. I reached in my pocket and gave her all the money I had at the time, which was $300. She held onto that moment, that moment gave her a bed and a shower for a couple of nights. This woman never let her life situation beat her; she stayed true to her dreams and busted her ass to get where she is today and now she’s my damn CO-STAR in my new movie NIGHT SCHOOL. GOD IS TRULY AMAZING. Stay on the course people and continue to follow your dreams. You are looking at 2 people on a movie poster that are living proof of it being worth it in the long run!!! P.S I want my $300 dollars back now.”
Haddish shared her thoughts on Instagram stating, “I am so excited about this movie. It is truly a full circle moment for me. To be co-starring in a movie with @kevinhart4real just Proves to me that God is real. Back in 2005, Kevin and I were co-stars in a sketch Comedy Show at a comedy club in LA. I was homeless as hell and I didn’t want anyone to know. Kevin noticed a bunch of things in my car and actually took the time to talk to me. He gave me $300 and told me to get a hotel for he week (mind you that is impossible in LA y’all). He also told me to write out a list of goals, get my shit together and start working towards those goals. I did just that and over the years, Kevin has always been the big little brother I never had. Thank you Kevin for always being willing to teach me and letting me know when I was making mistakes. You are a comedy angel. Now when I am in Forbes Magazine as one of the highest paid actresses in the world, I will pay you that $300 back. That is just one of the many things on my list of goals I have yet to accomplish. So check out #nightschool y’all where I get to be the teacher.
We can’t wait to see what this duo brings to the big screen!
