The Kevin Hart speaking date at Temple University announced last month is now a photo op and meet-and-greet that's been moved to the Parkway Central Library.
Fox 29's Quincy Harris, host of The Q, will no longer be leading a talk with the Philadelphia-born comedian, as was previously announced. Organizers say they reconfigured the event to a photo-op format due to popular demand.
According to an event posting, those who purchased passes to the previously announced Temple University event will receive a refund. Passes to the new event must be purchased separately.
Attendees may begin lining up for the event at 4 p.m. on June 7, after which they will get to have a quick meeting with Hart, where they can have a photo taken and get their copy of I Can't Make This Up signed. Fans can retrieve their photos at KevinHartBook.Photos, but may not use other digital or cellphone cameras during the event.
Hart last year was named the highest-paid comedian in in the business, topping comedy legends like Jerry Seinfeld thanks to some $87.5 million in earnings between June 2015 and 2016, Forbes reports. Hart has shared the wealth with his hometown, donating $250,000 to the Philadelphia School District in 2013, followed by the establishment of four $50,000 scholarships for Philadelphia high school students in 2015.
Philadelphia paid that kindness back earlier this year with the establishment of July 6 as "Kevin Hart Day" in the city, making the comedian's birthday an official holiday. Last year, the state of California gave Hart his own day, on Feb. 22.
