Kevin Hart is the new king of comedy when it comes to raking in the millions. According to Forbes, Hart has dethroned Jerry Seinfeld, who had held the spot since 2006, as the highest-paid comedian. Hart has made $87.5 million for the year, compared with Seinfeld's $43.5 million.

Hart brought in the big bucks with movies like Ride Along 2, Central Intelligence and The Secret Life of Pets. He's also a spokesman for H&M, Foot Locker and Hyundai.


Earlier this year, Hart's "Kevin Hart: What Now?" comedy tour became the highest-grossing comedy tour of all time, with more than 100 shows from June 2015 to June 2016, with each show bringing in $1 million.

Whether or not you like Hart's brand of comedy, you can't deny that he's become one of the hardest-working men in show business.
