Kevin Hart Dares You ‘Not to Laugh’ Watching His New Obstacle-Course Show TKO: Total Knock Out

Kevin Hart has made a name for himself by making other people laugh, so it’s fitting that the actor and comedian is hosting a show full of laughter.

Hart, 39, takes on the role of emcee for the first time in his career with TKO: Total Knock Out, the new one-hour obstacle course competition series on CBS.

The 10 episodes will feature a contestant racing through difficult obstacles while four other competitors control battle stations along the course with the goal of knocking off the solo runner, who hopes to take home a cash prize.

“First and foremost the host of the show is amazing. So personable, likable, takes any situation and knows how to make the best of it,” Hart jokingly tells PEOPLE about what to expect from TKO.

“Outside of him, expect a lot of fun and funny. I really, really credit the producers for creating a platform where anybody was welcome. This is something where they wanted to give a person who may or may not consider themselves to be an athlete the opportunity at success,” he says.

“By doing an obstacle course and having fun and being able to compete with other people with the same goal and agenda at hand, it makes for great TV. There’s nothing like it on television, it separates itself from other things including the host that elevates it that much more.”

Though Hart explains how the “best thing” about the show is how people take on the obstacle course, ultimately the hilarious failed attempts are what make the series.

“I hate to say it, but watching people fall is funny,” he says. “Falling is funny. You can try not to laugh all you want. You can have a moment to be sincere, but you always turn around and in private you laugh. A fall equals funny, and there’s a lot of falling on this show, so I think we have a lot of funny coming for quite some time.”

Though the inaugural season of TKO features everyday people, Hart would love to see his celebrity friends as contestants, specifically Jumanji costar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

“He would suck. He would suck and not be able to get through the first zone. That’s a 100 percent correct,” Hart says.

Win or lose, Hart emphasizes that TKO is all heart.

“It’s making the people feel like they did not waste their time, showing them that their effort was the most valuable thing that they can ever put on display. And to simply not quit, not give up,” he says. “ leave inspired, they leave like they have a major accomplishment under their belt. Win or lose, they go home with something.”

TKO: Total Knock Out premieres Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.

"Showgirls" in particular has been proclaimed a cult camp classic, with the Canadian critic Adam Nayman arguing in his book "It Doesn't Suck" that it was a brilliant satire on the debasement of the American Dream.

Hospital’s ‘Laugh Cafe’ For Seniors Proves That Laughter Is The Best Medicine

Need a good laugh? Washington’s Sibley Memorial Hospital has you covered with their “Laugh Cafe.”

A part of the Sibley Senior Association, which was launched in 1987, Sibley’s Laugh Cafe is exactly what it sounds like — a room next to the hospital cafeteria where senior citizens go to tell jokes and laugh.

The Laugh Cafe opened in August of 2012, and it holds monthly, hour-long laugh sessions. There’s a one-time forty dollar fee to join, and from there the price of admission is a joke. Although the program is primarily for seniors, patients and family members are also invited to join. 

“I had heard about the health benefits of laughter yoga so I informally surveyed my favorite jokester members,” Senior Association director Marti Bailey told The Huffington Post. “The overwhelming reaction was that they wanted a reason to laugh and rejected laughter simply for laughter’s sake.”

Sibley’s Laugh Cafe was born from this idea, and it continues to be a popular program among hospital residents. Bailey said that although most members arrive with pretty tame jokes, they can get a bit “racy.”

“People often ask if the jokes are censored or if there is a standard for what kind of joke might be acceptable. I respond that the members are all adults and as a club have elected to be self-governing and open about the types of jokes offered,” she explained.

“So far members have provided jokes that are generally clean, sometimes word play that produce audible groans, and sometimes a little ‘racy’ or edgy. Everyone has a different sense of humor. All have laughed and none have complained. And people keep coming back.”

There’s a reason laughing makes these seniors feel so darn good — various studies have shown how beneficial laughter can be. Along with relieving stress and lowering blood pressure, laughter has been shown to relieve pain and boost the immune system

Who wouldn’t want to spent some time at a Laugh Cafe?!

Why You Shouldn’t Laugh at Someone Who Stutters

The bar is packed, and I have to lean across the table to introduce myself. “Hi I’m…” The usual mouth-gapping, eye-opening silence. Followed by the repeated putter of “Ka” “Ka” “Ka.” She stares for a second, maybe two. And then she laughs. She looks around the table, reaching out for someone to join her private joke. Met with blank faces from my friends and half-smiles from strangers, she turns back to me, still braying. My mouth is not ready to smile. Even if I wanted to, I’m not able to save her. I’m mid stutter, still reaching deep inside of myself, clawing down into my lungs and my throat, to drag my name out of my mouth and into the open. I greedily inhale a fistful of air and try again, “Hi, I’m K K K.”

Improbably, her laughter continues. I watch as one of my friends, the one who knows her, leans over and whispers something. The distraction loosens something in me and finally I spit out “Katherine.” My friend pulls away from her ear. The girl looks confused. I hope that my friend has told her to stop being so rude (I honestly hope for something more expletive-ridden), but I know she has told her I stutter. The first thing she says is “sorry.” And in that silence it doesn’t sound like she is apologizing for her insensitivity — it sounds like she is sorry that I stutter. Sorry that I have a name that has never escaped my mouth unscathed. Sorry that I am who I am.

As the writer Benson Bobrick once wrote, in those moments my heart hardens against her. She is an adult who has been through years of education, someone who has all the capacity necessary for empathy. She is a magazine editor, a label she had thrown around like a badge of honor moments before. She should know better. We all should.

I don’t say, “that’s okay.” It isn’t. Instead, I smile and I tell her that I stutter. Before she says sorry again, I tell her that my name takes me a while. She nods. Mute now. The hurt, angry side of me wants to tell her off, to make her feel small and repentant. The stronger side of me wants to educate her, to teach her about stuttering. Instead, I motion towards my other friend and she introduces herself. It is over in less than five seconds. I pipe up as she finishes, “That was far too easy.” We all laugh. It sounds different.

The thing is, I believe in laughter. I believe in smiling in the midst of a stutter, in telling someone that there is nothing to be afraid of and bringing my listener towards me. I believe in laughing at all the ridiculous situations that my stutter creates. And yet, I know that there is something cruel in laughing at the spectacle of stuttering.

So why do people do it? In all honesty, it is rarely done out of malice. More often it is done out of surprise. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, we expect the world to be a linear and predictable place. If we hear someone speaking “fluently” one moment, we expect that to continue to the next. When it does not, when it is interpreted and broken apart, we are shocked. I know I am. And so, in our surprise, we laugh. It is a natural reaction.

Yet, it is a response that we need to curb. We need to be kind. We need to resist our most basic and uniformed urges.

I spent years of my life expecting my listeners to be mind-readers, expecting them to react in the perfect way to my stutter. And yet, I realize that I’m not at all sure that I would know the best way to respond if I did not stutter myself. It is not always an easy thing to behold and there has never been a manual for our audience. It is not as simple as it could be, not everyone wants the same reaction. Some stutterers like people to fill in their words when they get stuck; others can’t imagine anything worse (I fall into the latter category). The best our listener can do is to ask, but that requires a level of trust that is not present in every interaction.

And so, we must be our own ambassadors, we must lead the way. Having interviewed hundreds of stutterers I know that there is no one single correct response that we require from our listeners. And yet, there are standards that seems to be largely universal. These are the best guidelines that I know:

  • Look beyond the mask of stuttering. Listen to our words, not how we say them. React to us, just as you would to anyone else.
  • Keep coming towards us. Don’t frown or turn away. Don’t make us feel too monstrous to behold.
  • Keep eye contact, but don’t turn it into a staring competition.
  • Be patient. The words will come, they may just take a few extra seconds. Don’t give up on us and shut down the conversation. Definitely don’t walk away.
  • Don’t laugh at us. Don’t pity us or mock us. If you smile out of kindness that is something else. That is wonderful. If you laugh alongside us, we will all feel less alone.

Above all else, show your compassion.
