Comedian Kevin Hart is expanding his "The Kevin Hart Irresponsible Tour," adding more than 100 new dates across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia, including Bakersfield.

The new dates will kick off March 23 in Baltimore, Maryland, and hit all new cities including New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, Paris, London, Sydney, Auckland, Singapore, and more. Hart will perform May 12 at Rabobank Arena.

Tickets for these added dates will go on sale starting Wednesday at 9 a.m. via

The comedian last performed at Rabobank in 2015 as part of his popular "What Now?" tour.

Also coming to Rabobank this summer is "The Comedy Get Down" tour, featuring Cedric "The Entertainer," Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley and George Lopez. The foursome of comedy royalty will perform July 7.

The performance was originally set to happen April 13 but had to be postponed due to artist scheduling conflicts. Tickets for the original date are valid for the new one; there is no need to exchange. Those who cannot make the new date can get a refund at point-of-purchase.

Local comedy fans might have seen two of the touring comics — Lopez and Hughley — who performed a double bill for a New Year's Eve show in 2016.

Tickets, ranging from $35 to $135, are on sale now at, the Rabobank Arena Box Office or by phone at 888-929-7849.
