American comedian Kevin Hart is one of the highest paid comedians of 2018 according to Forbes.
Hart, 39, came in second on Forbes’ World’s Highest-Paid Comedians of 2018 list, with total earnings of $57 million. The comedian who lives by the mantra live, love, laugh posted on Instagram saying that he was honored to be listed by Forbes alongside talented comedians.
