Kevin Hart had a very busy weekend of making people laugh in New York and lifting their spirits in New Jersey.

    On Saturday, Kevin performed to a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden in New York for a stop on his Let Me Explain tour. After the show, he hung with some VIPs, including Taraji P. Henson, Jay-Z and Chris Rock.

    Before that, though, Kevin made a stop over in Newark, New Jersey, to help out with the relief effort after Hurricane Sandy ripped up the region nearly two weeks ago. Kevin and Newark mayor Cory Booker delivered goods and much needed funds to communities that are still recovering from the storm.

    "I’m blessed; and to be able to help these families obtain the basic necessities that they need is both humbling and uplifting," said Kevin.
