It seems like the A-Lister comedians know how to stay on the top of the entertainment game, unlike D-Lister Kathy Griffin.
He is willing to pick fun at any topic, but when it comes to politics Hart won’t go there.
Variety interviewed the comedian to promote his new book.
In it the What Now star explains why avoiding politically-charged comedy keeps him from “alienating” his audience.
“When you jump into that political realm you’re alienating some of your audience,” Hart said.
“The world today, it’s really not a laughing matter. It’s serious,” he added. “I don’t want to draw attention to things I don’t have nice things to say about.”
Hart’s films, including 2016’s Central Intelligence and the Ride Along franchise, have grossed nearly $1.5 billon domestically.
The 37-year-old actor reportedly commands $10 million per film.
With a slew of successful stand-up specials under his belt, a bevy of blockbuster films slated for release — including a Jumanji remake debuting in December and a Great Outdoors remake in the works — the Hartbeat Productions boss says he wants to become an Oprah Winfrey-like media mogul.
Maybe Kathy Griffin should have called up Kevin Hart before pulling that ‘beheading Trump’ stunt.
She might still have a career if that was the case.
Now every network is dropping her like hot cakes.
No matter Hart’s political views, he is right and that is why he is so successful.
