A Real Funny Guy, Huh?

Trying to transcribe a Kevin Hart joke is difficult, as many of his funniest moments are imitations of people whose speech he doesn't understand--his toddler daughter, thugs, women. But he does have some advice that shows he has at least some grasp of how to deal with the latter, as his routine about how to win an argument with a woman shows. Confronted by a female angry over seeing him in a car with another lady, he suggests that if you can-t beat -em, just be loud and confuse -em: "'Bitch, shut up! Every time I come in the house, you got the microwave on high! Fuck you!' Walk out of the house. She's going to be standing there, saying, 'I thought he liked when I used the microwave. I don't understand him or what he wants anymore.'"
