Kevin Hart

Jerry Seinfeld has finally been dropped as the most paid funnyman in the comedy business. Now, that honor belongs to Kevin Hart.

 The Philadelphia native this week topped Forbes’ list of “Highest-Paid Comedians” for 2016, bringing home a cool $87.5 million for the year. Seinfeld, who has held the list’s top spot since 2006, took home $43.5 million in 2016 and landed at second place on the list.
Forbes calculated the comedians’ totals using data between June 2015 and June 2016. In that time, Hart has starred in films including Ride Along 2, Central Intelligence, and The Secret Life of Pets, and appeared in commercials for H&M, Foot Locker, and Hyundai.

Kevin’s roles in the films Central Intelligence and Secret Life Of Pets as well as his lucrative What Now? comedy tour contributed to his new highest paid comedian title.
