Minnesota native to appear on Kevin Hart's fake reality show


A St. Paul-born comedian is set to appear on comedy star Kevin Hart's fake reality show "The Real Husbands of Hollywood" on BET, the Pioneer Press reports.

Vanessa Graddick, who graduated from St. Paul Central High School and the University of Minnesota, will be featured on the show Tuesday, playing an angry customer at a Hart book signing.

Graddick last year appeared on the Showtime comedy series "Lip Service." Based in Los Angeles, Graddick is a regular performer at such venues as The Comedy Union, The Laugh Factory and The Improv, and has also performed for U.S. troops in South Korea, Iraq and Kuwait.

Behind the camera, Graddick is also a segment producer on Logo TV's "The Gossip Queens."
