Need a laugh? And need it now? Kevin Hart and Lionsgate have you covered! The studio has just debuted its brand-new multi-platform streaming service called Laugh Out Loud, which features original scripted and unscripted comedy series, stand-up specials, licensed programming, and live broadcasts. If and when you’re in the mood to smile, this service is here to help turn your frown upside down at home or on the go. Or you can just keep watching cat videos... your choice!
At the helm of the platform is rock-star comedian Kevin Hart, whose social media savviness coupled with an apparent desire for comedy domination has now bridged television and online humor. Big names and newcomers alike are breaking through with Laugh Out Loud’s original programming, including content from GloZell, King Bach, Emmanuel Hudson, DC Young Fly, Draya Michelle, David So, Timothy DeLaGhetto, Anjelah Johnson, and many more. Hart has curated the featured talent through LOL showcases at events, like the world's top comedy festival "Just for Laughs."
You might recognize a familiar face amongst the ranks (wink wink). Screen Rant’s own Ryan George co-created, co-wrote and co-stars with his team at Moving Mind Studio (his partners in comedy Samuel Brisson and Brandon Calder) in an eight episode series called Campus Law. The series follows three recent college graduates who decide to get jobs as security guards on their former campus. Campus Law was greenlit by Hart at the Laugh Out Loud Presents: Just for Laughs Eat My Shorts pitch session during the 2016 JFL comedy festival. If you like Ryan (or laughing) as much as we do, we recommend giving this series a watch!

Hart is thrilled to be innovating alongside streaming technology to take comedy to the next level and make it easier than ever to get high-quality content directly into the hands of viewers. He said:
"Funny has no color or gender. With our friends at Lionsgate, we are creating a global network that gives a platform to the next generation of diverse comedians from all over the world, of all ethnicities, to tell their stories. Our culture of comedy is unfiltered and inclusive. Most importantly, we exist to make the world laugh."
Lionsgate is certainly pleased to be partnering with Hart according to Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer who said, "Kevin Hart is an extraordinary global talent, and we're proud to continue expanding our multi-faceted relationship into exciting new opportunities. He is not only one of the biggest stars in the world but a great entrepreneur and an incredible brand. Together, we're building Laugh Out Loud into a compelling, content-rich value proposition for his millions of current fans - as well as new audiences worldwide."
