The highest paid comedian in 2018 was Kevin Hart. He made an estimated $87.5 million dollars that year. This is more than double what the second highest paid comedian, Jerry Seinfeld, made that year.
Hartâ€™s income is largely due to his successful stand-up comedy tours. In 2018, he went on a world tour called the â€œIrresponsible Tourâ€ which grossed over $60 million dollars. He also has a number of lucrative endorsement deals, including with Nike and Mountain Dew.
Hart has been one of the most popular comedians in recent years and his popularity has only continued to grow in recent years. His films have grossed over $1 billion dollars at the box office and he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. It is estimated that Hart will continue to be one of the highest paid comedians for years to come as he continues to dominate the comedy scene both on stage and on screen
