Before I get into this "Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain" review, I feel like I should get into the history of Kevin Hart for a second...

Not counting his half-hour special on Comedy Central, "I'm A Grown Little Man" was Hart's first big stand-up special, back in 2009. And it was a CLASSIC. It's one of the few stand-up specials that you could go back and watch time and time again, and still laugh just as hard as the first time. It was never a theater release, so it's not BDBOS eligible, but if it was, it would have easily been a 5 out of 5.

"Seriously Funny" was his second stand-up special, in 2010. It's hard to top your first time out when you completely crush it like that, but he came damn close. Again, if it was eligible, it would have been a 4.5 out of 5.

Then came his first theater release, "Laugh At My Pain", which hit theaters last year. The movie covered his 2011 tour of the same name, in which he broke a record held by Eddie Murphy for ticket sales over a two-day period by an African-American comedian. (he cracked 1.1 millions in sales for the two-day live set at the Nokia Theater in L.A.)

Here's where it gets a little funky..."Laugh At My Pain" wasn't as good as his first two specials. And, by movie standards, it was short – it clocked in at just over an hour. They tried to fill in some extra time by throwing in a produced short at the end of it, featuring Hart and his friends, but it didn't do much to improve the overall flick. Don't get me wrong, it was still funny, but it fell short of the standards that we came to expect. It scored a 3 out of 5.

So now we get to "Let Me Explain", which covers his latest tour that hit Madison Square Garden. This is still short…an hour and a half, tops. But it's definitely better than "Laugh At My Pain", and had me cry-laughing at one point…it's pretty damn good. And there's a pretty touching moment at the end, where the idea of being one of the very few comics to headline at MSG both humbles him and gets him emotional. Pretty cool stuff.

"Let Me Explain" scores a 8 out of 10 on the BDBOS. Good job, Kevin.
