Kevin Hart became the first comedian to sell out an NFL stadium in 2015 when he performed at Lincoln Financial Field.

Philadelphia comedian Kevin Hart is bringing his “Irresponsible Tour” home this fall. He’ll play the Wells Fargo Center on Nov. 24.

When Hart last performed an official show in Philly, at Lincoln Financial Field in 2015, he became the first comedian to sell out an NFL stadium. Hart tested out material with unannounced stand-up shows while he was in Philadelphia filming the dramedy The Upside with Bryan Cranston.

Hart, an avowed Eagles fan, will also perform in Minneapolis this weekend before the Super Bowl.

Tickets for his Wells Fargo Center show will go on sale at noon Wednesday. They can be purchased at wellsfargocenterphilly.com, in person, or by phone at 800-298-4200.

Hart, from North Philadelphia, will also perform May 26 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Tickets for that show also go on sale at noon Wednesday and can be purchased at livenation.com, boardwalkhall.com, in person, or by phone at 800-736-1420.

Last year, Hart published his memoir, I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons. The book debuted at the top of the New York Times best seller list. Hart also voiced the title character in Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie and appeared in the Sony reboot of Jumanji released last month.
