North Philly born and bred comedian Kevin Hart will host the 4th of July Jam, as part of the Wawa Welcome America! Festival, on the Ben Franklin Parkway. The show will feature previously announced sets from John Mayer, J. Cole, Grace Potter, Jill Scott, Ne-Yo, Demi Lovato and, of course, the Roots.

Can't make it to the Parkway for the festivities? It will be simulcast on 6abc (like it is every year) and nationally it will be broadcast on VH1 and Palladia from 8 to 11 p.m.

It'll be a big week for Hart. His next stand-up movie, "Let Me Explain," hits theaters July 3, which is, coincidentally, Hart's 33rd birthday.

Catch Hart next in star-studded apocalypse comedy, "This is the End," featuring Seth Rogen, James Franco and whole host of other celebs (including Rhianna), on June 12.
