Thus, nine-year reign of Seinfeld at the head of this list was interrupted.
So impressive money Kevin Hart brought stand-up performances at American stadiums, participation in advertising, as well as in television and film projects. Among the latest big films with the participation of the comedian appear “One and a half spy” and ” The Secret Life of Pets.” He is now filming with Duyane Johnson in the Jumanji sequel.
In the US, Hart has long been one of the most sought-after humorists, while outside of the country, his popularity is growing much slower.
Another important addition to the list is Amy Schumer in fourth place. She earned 17 million for the year and became the first woman to be among the ten most highly paid comedians. 8 million of this amount brought the rights to the autobiographical book “The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo”.
Overall, a dozen of the most successful comedians now looks like this:
- Kevin Hart Net Worth – $ 186 million;
