Hart: I have no idea where you go next. None. No idea! I’m scared.

CNN: Do you approach standup in the same way you would approach a movie or TV role?

Hart: I don’t approach it like it’s a movie role. I genuinely love doing standup and I’m a comedian first, so for me what makes my standup special is the fact that I don’t have to adapt or adjust. I am who I am. I appeal to everyone, hence in the movie doing a world tour. I’m not changing, I’m not adjusting my voice, I’m not changing my speed and the way that I talk. This is me. I’m actually funny. So I think the prep for that is me just enjoying what I do.

CNN: When you talk about your family and your kids in your standup, is that coming from a personal place?

Hart: Personal place. The motivation is wanting to put myself out there so people can see that I’m genuine and I’m real. What you see is what you get. It’s not fake. I’m not trying to be someone else. I’m being myself.

CNN: What else do you have coming up beyond “Let Me Explain?”

Hart: I have like five movies coming out. Everything will be out in 2014 and 2015. I think I’m getting the opportunity to play the kind of character I’m interested in now. The movie “Ride Along,” starring Ice Cube and myself, is an action comedy and I’m doing everything I ever wanted to do in the film. [I also have] “About Last Night,” which is a remake of the original, starring Michael Ealy, Joy Bryant, Regina Hall and myself, and “Grudge Match,” which stars Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro. I’m about to do one with Will Ferrell [and] I’m about to do one with Seth Rogan. I’m sure I’m forgetting one.

CNN: And you were just cast in the new Chris Rock movie as well, right?

Hart: Yeah! My part, from what I understand, is I’m playing an assistant. I haven’t read the newest draft that came in. But it’s a funny reveal cameo he asked me to do.

CNN: What’s the status of the second season of your TV show “Real Husbands of Hollywood?”

Hart: That will be in its third season. The second season starts premiering, I think, in September or October, and that’s probably when we’ll start shooting [the third season].

CNN: What does your average day look like?

Hart: No sleep! Right now I’m probably going on 27 hours awake. So my days are hectic. Once I’m done with this today I go to Conan O’Brien. After that I go to the premiere. I got to introduce the premiere. Then I get on a plane and I fly to Vegas. I land and I go straight to the set and I’m shooting until 4 a.m. It’s ridiculously crazy. At some point I’m just going to shut down. I don’t know when it’s going to happen today, but someone’s going to stop talking to me and I’m going to be asleep. Once I stop talking it’s all over.
