Kevin Hart Secures New Gig After Stepping Down As Oscars Host

The comedian won't be the only one on the bill.

Kevin Hart's recent fiasco surrounding his withdrawal from his then-forthcoming Oscars hosting duties tarnished his brand, for some. However, it appears as the comedian wasted no time in getting back on his feet, as he's already secured a new hosting gig for another major event.

Taking to Instagram, the Night School star shared with his followers that he will be hosting a New Year's Eve weekend celebration at Drai's Nightclub in Las Vegas.

He will be joined by rappers Fabolous, Lil Wayne, Future and Big Sean for the star-studded event.

"Oh, my God! New Year's Eve weekend in Vegas at Drai's is going to be unreal," he said in an IG video. "Unreal? I'm talking about one of the biggest and best lineups in the world. You got my man Fab, Lil Wayne, Big Sean. You got Future, the Countdown hosted by yours truly, Kevin Hart!"

Take a look at the video, below:

His announcement comes a few weeks after he publicly first shared that he would be hosting the 91st annual Academy Awards before quickly stepping down after receiving backlash due to his previous homophobic tweets resurfacing.

After initially refusing to apologize for the comments, which he previously expressed regret, he officially stepped down from the gig and delivered an apology anyway.
