Soon he began receiving offers to appear in various television series and films, in that way leaving a mark in the entertainment industry.

The sources state that Kevin Hart’s net worth is estimated to be $25 million. A huge part of Kevin Hart’s net worth and wealth comes from his many appearances on television. Kevin Hart was born in 1979, in Pennsylvania, US, and later moved out to New York City in order to study at the community college. Hart first began performing stand-up comedy at local clubs in Philadelphia, and as his interest grew, he started to become more dedicated to it. Inspired by Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Eddie Murphy, Kevin Hart soon became known for his unique style and sharp humor.

In 2002, Hart made his film debut in a crime comedy with Beanie Sigel and Kamal Ahmed “Paper Soldiers”. Ever since then, Hart had been a recurring guest on television screens.

In 2003, he starred alongside Anna Faris, Anthony Anderson, Leslie Nielsen and Charlie Sheen in a parody film created by David Zucker “Scary Movie 3”. A box office hit with over $220 million grossed worldwide, “Scary Movie 3” introduced Kevin Hart to a larger audience. With 20 television series and over 30 films under his belt, Kevin Hart has appeared in such memorable movies as “Meet Dave” with Eddie Murphy, “Scary Movie 4”, “Drillbit Taylor” with Owen Wilson and Josh Peck, as well as “Think Like a Man” for which he was nominated for Teen Choice Award. In addition to this nomination, Kevin Hart has been a recipient of BET Awards for Best Actor, as well as NAACP Image Awards for Entertainer of the Year, and Best Actor in Comedy Series.

#Quote
1[on his relationship with his father] My dad said I was supposed to be on drugs. I was like "Dad, shut up," but then I thought about it and, and it was stupid, but it made sense. He was saying that basically he was my example to never go down that road.
2Here's the thing. We do a movie with a predominantly black cast and it's put in a category of being a black film. When other movies are done with a predominantly white cast, we don't call them a white film. I'm trying to remove the stigma off things they call black films.
3A reputation as a hard worker is a good reputation to have. It's also about being professional and very loyal to the people who put me here, which would be my fans. I feel like I have a job to do, like I constantly have to reinvent myself. The more I up the ante for myself, the better it is in the long run. I try to interact with my fans as much as possible. It's good that the person I'm being onstage isn't really an act. It's really me.
4[on discovering his comic side] I was probably around eleven. My mom was about to whup me, whup me with a belt. I said something she couldn't help but laugh at, and I thought I might be funny. Cause if I could stop a whupping with comedy, I'm doing the right thing.
5[on being asked if there were any topics he would not joke about] Uh, yes. Rape. Rape would be one of them. I also stay clear of homosexuality or anything dealing with that right now, because it's such a sensitive topic in today's times. There are words I've used in the past that I wouldn't use now because of the attention those words get.
6I think if someone gets kicked in the face it is their fault- they watched the foot come towards their face.
