Kevin Hart is World’s Highest-Paid Comedian of the year 2018/2019


American actor and stand-up comedian, Kevin Hart has topped Forbes’ list of world’s highest-paid comedians for the year 2018/2019.

According to Forbes, the comedian maintained sponsorships with brands like Mountain Dew and Chase while also releasing a Netflix special, revenue from a global stadium tour, and was able to rake in $59 million between June 1, 2018, and June 1, 2019, earning him the No. 1 spot on Forbes‘ list of the highest-earning stand-up comedians for the second time.

Coming in at No. 2 on the list is Jerry Seinfeld, whom Forbes has consistently ranked as the highest-paid comedian in the industry and who was out-earned by Hart only once before, in 2016. His $41 million haul is down a touch from last year’s $57.5 million as he did not deliver a special for Netflix this year. But he’ll continue to earn big paydays in the future thanks to a residency at The Beacon in Manhattan and payments from Hulu for Seinfeld streaming rights.
