*Kevin Hart is all over television promoting his latest film “Central Intelligence,” and folks came for the comic on two fronts Wednesday night — first on NBC’s “Maya and Marty,” then, hours later on “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” where he engaged in a battle rap for the show’s Drop the Mic segment.
“Get High, Ride Along, Ride Along 2 / you’re great at being in movies with people more famous than you,” Corden said first, kicking off a lyrical assault consisting mostly of jokes about Hart’s size. The host eventually brought out a step-stool for Kevin.
“James Corden thinks I look like a kid / Well, I might be small but my bank account’s big,” said Hart, who came for Corden’s late-night game (“Carpool Karaoke, how long that last? How do you rap with your head up Lin-Manuel’s ass?”) and his extra pounds: “I fill football stadiums, you barely fit in the seat.”

Hours earlier, Hart appeared in a “Maya and Marty” sketch opposite Martin Short, who interviewed the actor as his former “Saturday Night Live” character – old school, self-absorbed, shade-slinging celebrity “journalist” Jiminy Glick.
“My guest today is here because he doesn’t turn anything down, as you can tell from his reel,” Glick says cheerfully in his introduction. “Please welcome pocket-sized comedian, Kevin Darnell Hart.”

And on ESPN’s “The Jump,” Hart found time to call out Ben Simmons, who is expected to be the top pick in this month’s NBA draft. He made headlines Wednesday after declining an invitation to work out for the Philadelphia 76ers, Hart’s hometown team who happens to have the No. 1 overall pick.
