Kevin Hart references a boxer in his new Netflix special, Zero F**ks Given, but just who is Lefty Lou Earl and are they real?
Kevin Hart is back on Netflix for his latest comedy special, Zero F**ks Given.
Throughout the show, Kevin explores a typically wide array of topics from his family to getting older.
One way Kevin has been combatting the inevitable process of ageing is to take up boxing and we hear about his first and only sparring bout.
During Kevin’s re-telling he says that his coach talked about a fierce fighter he once knew, Left Lou Earl.
But just who is Lefty Lou Earl, are they a real boxer?
Kevin Hart: Zero F**ks Given on Netflix
Kevin Hart: Zero F**ks Given arrived on Netflix on November 17th, 2020.
This is a comedy show with a difference, however, as it was filmed in September 2020 in the comfort of Kevin Hart’s own home with a small, intimate and masked up audience to reflect the world we’re living in.
During the Netflix special, Kevin delves into an array of topics from his family, fame and fear of being cancelled by social media.
Lefty Lou Earl
Towards the end of the stand-up routine, Kevin starts to delve into how he stays fit now he’s reached the wrong side of 40.
He explains that he took up boxing and that his trainer was impressed with what he saw, saying that his punches were like lightning.
During the segment, we hear that Kevin’s trainer compared him to a boxer named Lefty Lou Earl and we’re led to believe that Lefty Lou Earl was a fierce fighter.
However, it’s revealed that Lefty Lou Earl earned his nickname because he was missing his right arm and that Kevin’s trainer only compared the two because Lou Earl supposedly had a squeaky voice, like Kevin’s.
Who is Lefty Lou Earl?
It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but:
- Lefty Lou Earl isn’t a real boxer and is a character made up for Kevin Hart’s Netflix special.
Instead, Lou Earl is actually a brand of Italian-made shoes which was founded in 2013 by Alaska-born designer, Laura Unruh.
Kevin Hart has been famed for embellishing and twisting the truth in his stand-up comedy shows and Lefty Lou Earl seems to be another of these instances.
Kevin Hart: Zero F**ks Given is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on November 17th, 2020.
