Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Pacts with Wheelhouse


Brent Montgomery’s Wheelhouse Entertainment and Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud have entered into a new co-production deal to develop, produce and distribute a slate of unscripted programming.

The projects will showcase fresh comedic stories and new voices. The two companies will also partner with brands to co-fund and co-produce a slate of original content. All content will be co-produced and co-owned by LOL and Wheelhouse.

The first project on deck for LOL and Wheelhouse, Lyft Comics from Kevin Hart, is co-produced with Lyft Entertainment. The show features comedians driving for Lyft as they test out new stand up sets on unsuspecting passengers along for the ride.

“Brent and his team come to the table with entrepreneurial and creative tools that are rare in this industry,” said Laugh Out Loud CEO Hart. “Our teams share a passion for comedy, cultivating new talent, amplifying diverse voices and building valuable IP. I can’t wait for audiences to experience the magic Laugh Out Loud and Wheelhouse will create together.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to lock horns with the Laugh Out Loud team to create IP that we hope will drive culture,” added Wheelhouse CEO Montgomery. “Kevin is a force of nature whose ambition is actually matched by his work ethic—and we know we will create inspiring work with him and his team at Laugh Out Loud.”

“Our partnership with Laugh Out Loud goes back to the days of Kevin as Donald Mac in Lyft Legend and we’re excited to bring another Lyft concept to life with the team,” said Austin Schumacher, head of entertainment and culture marketing at Lyft. “Lyft Comics from Kevin Hart will be the entertaining, comedic relief we all need right now.”
