It’s no doubt that Kevin Hart is one of the hottest properties in the comedy business right now. At 33, he’s enjoying the peak of his career and even has more Twitter followers than Seinfeld and Chris Rock put together. Kevin Hart also recently released a very successful documentary covering his 2012 Tour “Let Me Explain” and has a hit TV series.

So what paved the road for Kevin’s current success?

Here is, what we believe to be, the “7 Reasons Why Kevin Hart Is So Successful“.

Kevin Hart’s Success

He Quit His Job!

Kevin Hart Comedy SuccessfulAt 18 years of age, Hart was developing a very successful career as a shoe salesman. He was even offered a career-changing opportunity with Nike. He turned the offer down. Instead, it was a signal for him to turn to his true passion of comedy.

Kevin Hart had the guts to take a massive risk and it paid off, even if it took him a little longer to make his goals happen.

 

 

Making the most of Social Media

Kevin Hart - Let Me ExplainHart’s success really makes a case for using social media in marketing campaigns. He actively engages with his fans, often sharing content and exchanging messages with fans on platforms such as Youtube and Twitter. He doesn’t let an assistant manage his social accounts either, being personally involved in everything he does online.

Kevin wants to make fans feel a part of what he’s doing. “I chose to make them part of my journey,” he once explained.

 

His fame doesn’t get to his head

Kevin Hart fame and successWhile Kevin Hart is now one of the biggest names in comedy, he still makes self-deprecating jokes and doesn’t take himself too seriously. For example, Kevin often pokes fun at his height (he’s 5’2), his poor background and his dismal failures with attractive women.

In addition to Hart’s social media efforts, this style of humour makes him a very relatable comedian. His act makes him come off as a regular guy rather than the superstar he’s now become. People are not receptive of egotistical entertainers and Kevin Hart understands this very well.

He never gave up on his dream

Kevin_Hart_Let_Me_ExplainHart has been involved in this business for over 15 years, but he’s only recently been reaping the benefits. He’s been part of plenty of failures and disappointments, such as box office flops Soul Plane and Fool’s Gold. For several years he couldn’t get an audition, let alone a role in a movie or TV show. No one would have blamed him had he turned to another career.

Kevin Hart never gave up on his dream, however, and built himself up from the very bottom through hard work. Examples of his perseverance include doing up to seven shows per weekend at venues such as college campuses and low-key comedy clubs. While he calls it a “rough stint” in his career, it nevertheless showed him that the way to success is never easy. His work ethic is now one of his major strengths and keeps him at the top of his game, even after all of the fame and fortune.

Personal Development and Innovation

Comedian Kevin HartEven when he reached the top of his game, Hart never stopped focusing on his development as an artist. This has been a thread throughout his career, despite early failures. When he first began as a stand-up comic, he would often stick to standard jokes that didn’t bring anything new to the table.

Kevin explained that most of his gags were based on “white people do this and black people do that.” More than a decade later, his act is now one of the most innovative and creative in the comedy world.

Taking the advice from other successful people

Kevin Hart - Jay-Z and Chris RockIt’s always a good idea to listen to those that have walked the walk. Chris Rock once gave Kevin Hart the solid piece of advice of always sticking to his guns and backing up his own brand no matter what. As a result, he never joined group tours, instead focusing on developing his own stand-up act.

While it made the road to success a little longer and more difficult, it was certainly worth listening to Mr Rock!

Using Life Experiences in his Stand-Up

Kevin Hart Let Me Explain ComedianKevin Hart has had some tough times in the past, including going through a painful divorce and a father battling drug addiction. His career wasn’t always full of praise and admiration either. He was booed off the stage plenty of times and he was once thrown a half-eaten chicken wing by a heckler! He never let these negative experiences discourage him, however, but instead included them in his act, which is a very smart move on Kevin’s part.

Some of Kevin Hart’s funniest pieces mock some of the experiences he’s gone through, making a great way of turning a negative into a positive! Kevin inspires others to be real with themselves and their experiences.

17. Avoid interrupting: Allow the other person to finish speaking without interruption.
