Kevin Hart is set to host a ‘Manningcast-style’ broadcast for the upcoming NBA In-Season Tournament Championship game.
And before this weekend’s showpiece at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the comedian had a few questions for Peyton Manning.
In a hilarious promo video for his NBA Megacast, which comes from Peyton’s Omaha Productions and his own Hartbeat, Hart asks the NFL legend for some advice over the phone as he prepares to present the show.
Manning tells him he can broadcast it anywhere he likes, even in his friend’s garage, to which he replies: ‘Friend’s garage? Hold on, wait wait wait. I’m a highly sought-out professional entertainer Peyton.’
Former Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee then joins the call, telling Hart that the dress code is purely tank tops as opposed to suit and ties – much to his dismay.

To round off the video, Peyton’s brother and fellow quarterback Eli tells Hart to ignore everything his older sibling said.
Hart will host the alternate broadcast – titled NBA Unplugged with Kevin Hart – during Saturday’s In-Season Tournament Championship.
He is set to do so alongside comedians the Plastic Cup Boyz: Joey Wells, Will Horton and Na’im Lynn, as well as a host of athletes and celebrities making special-guest appearances.
The actor and stand-up comedian has previously featured on Manningcast, where he joked that the two NFL brothers actually hate each other.
The In-Season Tournament, a cup-style tournament featuring all 30 NBA teams, will conclude over the next three days, with the semifinals to come on Thursday and the Championship game in store on Saturday.
The Pacers face the Bucks in the first of those semifinals, before the Pelicans take on the Lakers.
