Kevin Hart has revealed which one of his stand-up comedy specials is his favorite in his new interview with Funny Marco

The superstar comedian was the latest guest on Funny Marco's Open Thoughts, and although the conversation was filled with so many hilarious moments, as expected, there were a few where Hart did speak from the heart. Amid all the comedy, Funny Marco asked Hart which of his stand-up specials was his favorite, while also asking him questions about his fitness lifestyle. 

But like the master of language that he is, Hart flipped the question to his favor and explained that Seriously Funny was his favorite because the way he looked in that special inspired him to become healthier. 

"In my opinion, I'm going to say Seriously Funny," Hart said as Marco tried to throw him off his answer. "I feel like Seriously Funny was just a defining moment for me that honestly made me think about my body, and that's why I started working out because of how I looked on the special."

Seriously Funny was released in 2010 and served as his second stand-up comedy show after I'm a Grown Little Man in 2009. Recorded live at the Allen Theater in Cleveland, Ohio, Seriously Funny had Hart making hilarious jokes about his family life, growing up in school, and Shaquille O'Neal playing with LeBron James at the time. 

The film boosted Hart's popularity and led the way for him to release 2011's Laugh at My Pain and 2013's Let Me Explain, both of which were also released in movie theaters. Laugh at My Pain grossed over $15 million, making it one of the highest-selling comedy tours of that year.
