    Kevin Hart might be moving on from stand-up.

    The comedian said Wednesday at Las Vegas' CinemaCon that he might be done with stand-up comedy, according to Variety. "I don't know if I'm ever going to go out and do it again," Hart told theater owners at the convention, adding that his "What Now?" adventure was "my last f--- tour."

    Fans can take solace in the fact that "What Now?" is the subject of his upcoming stand-up movie, "Kevin Hart: What Now?" and anyone who didn't get to see his show can see him on the big screen — a place Hart has become quite familiar with given his success in the "Ride Along" franchise and "Get Hard." The upcoming movie features Hart in the middle of his world tour and ends with his sold-out show at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

    He was the first comedian to sell out an NFL stadium. His tour ended April 1 with a performance in Johannesburg, South Africa.

    Footage of his upcoming movie was played at the Las Vegas convention. It included Hart parodying Denzel Washington's character in "The Equalizer." Rather than use a corkscrew to take down Russian gangsters, Hart opted for a wine opener and wound up doused in blood. The preview was aired after people got a look at the latest Jason Bourne installment.

    "I say that is pretty good," Hart quipped, "but mine is better."

    Although he kept the funny going from start to finish, whether he was joking about Bourne or entering the presentation like a famous boxer, Hart also turned serious for a moment, telling the audience he believes in the laughter-is-the-best-medicine mantra.

    "I believe that laughter heals all wounds," he said. "It's a goal of mine to make people understand the power of laughter...I'm that person that you can laugh at."
