Kevin Hart originally got his start as a stand-up comedian, but after much success, ventured into film.
Born in North Philadelphia, Hart had a rough relationship with his father, who suffered from a cocaine addiction.
Although he had a good relationship with his mother, Hart saw comedy as a coping mechanism to escape problems with his father growing up.
Hart's comedy journey began at The Laff House in Philadelphia, but it wasn't smooth sailing. He faced numerous challenges, including getting booed off the stage multiple times.
Determined to succeed, he kept at it, reworking his acts to become more original and steering away from imitating other comedians
He finally saw success with his "I'm a Grown Little Man," and "Seriously Funny" acts, which landed him a spot on Comedy Central.
His Comedy Central debut was a huge success and led him to the film industry with roles in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Soul Plane," and "Little Fockers."
During a tour year, Hart will make around $70 million. He started the media venture HartBeat, and Laugh Out Loud which is a comedy streaming service.
Kevin Hart, with a fortune of $450 million, is a proud father of four children – two with his wife and two from a previous marriage.
