DETROIT (WWJ) – According to a recent report in Forbes Magazine, funnyman Kevin Hart is the first comedian to ever earn more than Jerry Seinfeld. Currently, Hart is ranked number six on Forbes’ list of the world’s highest paid celebrities, earning $87.5 million over the past year.
This weekend, Hart’s latest project opens in theaters: the stand-up comedy film “Kevin Hart: What Now?” Hart says he came up with the title because that’s the question he gets asked the most.
“The question ‘what now’ is a question that should always be answered,” according to Hart. “It’s a question that you should always … continue to roll through and roll out. With me, it’s just nonstop; it’s a nonstop movement and that’s what the title ‘What Now’ stems from.”
“What Now” is Kevin Hart’s most ambitious and most hilarious project to date. It opens with an elaborate chase scene that finds Hart and his beautiful sidekick in a casino, where Hart takes part in a high-stakes game of Blackjack. The laughs start there and once Hart takes to the stage in the massive Lincoln Financial Field in his hometown of Philadelphia, the laughs just keep on coming. He keeps the audience in stitches throughout the 96-minute film. If you’re in the mood for comedy this weekend, this is the movie to see. I laughed so hard, I almost cried.
See you at the movies!
