Actor Kevin Hart made the most of  his time in Chicago.

The well known comedian made a special stop Friday, June 13 to visit customers at the Hyde Park Hair Salon, more commonly known as President Barack Obama’s barbershop. He even gave a few hair cuts to the brave souls who let him get near. Terrence J joined him.

The long line wrapped around the building, 5234 S. Blackstone Ave., as fans anxiously waited to get an autograph and photo with Hart.


Things got a little hectic when people started complaining that they had been waiting for three hours or more. Police officers had to step in when some fans tried to push their way into the small shop, despite instructions to stay in a single file line. Besides some crushed toes, no one was hurt.


Hart was in town to help promote “Think Like a Man Too,” which hits theaters Friday, June 20th.
