Kevin Hart was feeling generous after performing a show at the Barclays Center on the comedy tour ‘Only Headliners Allowed’ he’s doing with Chris Rock.
The funny man made the night of the local “famous homeless” man, Julio, when he gave him $500 on his way to Herald’s Square jiggle joint Sapphire 39.
Julio is apparently not your average beggar. We’re told he makes a living from his own al fresco stand-up act. “He was telling jokes while Kevin was out for a walk,” the source said, adding that he enjoyed the show enough to hand over the wad of cash.
Hart arrived hand in hand with his wife Eniko and “was in a great mood, taking pictures and talking to everyone,” we are told.
Hart’s comedy partner Bestie Rock, who dated Lake Bell, did not show up at the club.
Still, Hart had plenty of other famous friends by his side. Indoors, he partied with rapper Fabolous, Maino, and Young MC, who performed his 1989 hit “Bust A Move.” Hart, of course, “caught a move” according to spies in the club.
Meanwhile, his generosity didn’t stop with Julio. We were told Hart brought his own Gran Coramino tequila to the bash and even gave free bottles to customers at other tables. The comedian has also spent “more than $10,000 throwing singles into the crowd and tipping the dancers,” the insider said.
Of course Hart closed the case. He and his crew didn’t leave the strip spot until after 4pm, we’re told.
