Today is Stephen A Smith’s birthday and the crew helped him celebrate in hysterical fashion by making sure to have Kevin Hart on as a guest today. Every minute of his time on air was hilarious and that is no exaggeration. He started it off by gifting Stephen A with a Tim Tebow Mets jersey, which if you know anything about the show, Stephen A respects Tebow and calls him his “friend” but really can’t stand to talk about him. Even though it was Smith’s birthday, Kevin proceeded to give co hosts Molly Qerim and Max Kellerman some very nice headphones while Stephen A just sat there in shock. Things only got funnier from there.


Everytime Kevin has been on First Take it’s been very funny but today was just on another level, as he continued his promo tour for his movie “What Now?”, which opens in theaters across the country today.

From making fun of Stephen A’s vocabulary and accusing him of using words that don’t exist, explaining how he was a high school basketball star (he wasn’t), to eventually taking over the show literally, this was must see television.
