How Much Is Kevin Hart Worth Now?
Despite having a Kevin Hart net worth of $30 million, this actor and comedian has not forgotten his more humble beginnings in North Philadelphia. He had a good relationship with his mother. However, his father was a cocaine addict and dealer and did not have as good of a relationship with his son Kevin. This strained relationship took its toll on Hart, who developed his unique brand of humor as a coping mechanism. While he admits that he did not have a strong bond with his dad, Hart also acknowledges that this early life struggle did play a huge role in his future success and his current net worth.
In fact, his humor has been called self-deprecating, sharp-tongued, and brutally honest, labels that are rare in today’s politically correct culture. Even so, Hart stands out as one of the most successful TV and film comedians today, following in the footsteps of the likes of Eddie Murphy, Bill Cosby, Chris Rock, and other comedic greats. His career path has prompted him to embark on several comedy tours of his own, including his 2009 act entitled “I’m a Grown Little Man” and “Seriously Funny” in 2010. His recent tour for “Laugh at My Pain” proved to be one of his most financially lucrative, bringing in $15 million and adding to his already impressive net worth.
So influential is Hart’s unique brand of humor that ABC plans to build an entire comedy series based on his comedy routines. Hart will not star in the show; however, he will make guest star appearances and also have a creative influence over the show’s development. Hart demonstrates through this show, his comedy, and his net worth that he has triumphed over his difficult childhood, strained relationship with his dad, and earlier professional roadblocks to become one of the most bankable comedy acts today.
