Comedian Kevin Hart is set to perform for his Kiwi fans in Auckland later this year.

The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star has announced a show at Spark Arena on December 11, originally billed as being in "Auckland, Australia".

Hart made the geographical error on his official website in late January, but local promoters have now confirmed he meant Auckland, New Zealand.

The show will be in a 360° in-the-round format; "a first for a stand-up comedy tour of this scale", according to promoters.

Hart is no stranger to breaking new ground with large-scale comedy events. In 2015, he performed for 53,000 fans at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field, becoming the first comedian to sell out an NFL stadium.

Tickets for the Auckland show go on sale to the general public on February 23.
