But nobody is begrudging him his success. Just saying he's not as funny as most comedians who get to this level. Especially Black comedians. For a Black comedian to cross over & headline tours & get top movie billing, they usually have to k!ll. I'm talking once in a lifetime funny. Foxx, Pryor, Murphy, Mabley, Chappelle, Cosby, and Rock are pretty much the standard bearers in Black comedy. But even "second tier" dudes like Martin Lawrence, The "Kings", The Wayans, Tucker, Morgan, Whoopi, etc, all k!llED before they got to the mainstream. And only Cosby did truly universal comedy. All the rest did straight up chitlin circuit Black comedy that forced it's way into the mainstream conscious. Kevin Hart ain't Cosby funny, not does he do "Black" comedy. So people don't think he doesn't deserve his success, just can't put a finger on it. He has a good niche & props to him for that. But being successful isn't always an indicator of how funny he is, but more about how PROFITABLE he is right now.

Kevin Hart can't be profitable if he isn't funny to a very great amount of ppl tho. ..if he wasn't funny, he wouldn't have ever been able to sell out Madison Square Garden twice.

Being 'Funny' and saying they 'KILLED' is so subjective. There's so many comedians I don't find funny, but have a huge fanbase. Does it mean they're not funny? Nah. It just means im not on the same wavelength as the ppl who enjoy that comedian. Just like my definition of dope music is different from the country music head's definition.

We need to let Kevin Hart have his run & stop comparing him to ELITES that have already RAN years ago. So many years ago, we forget their mediocore performances, their failures, and only see their highlights & classics.

I don't think Kevin Hart is the funniest comedian today, but I want him to win & keeping winning. You don't have to be the 2nd coming of Bill Cosby, Chappelle, or Eddie Murphy to get my support without a ton of salt on the side.

Points noted. But honestly, if you're gonna step into the arena, you're gonna be judged/compared. That's how it works. If Kevin Hart wants to a.ssume a "throne" held by past greats, then he has to cut the mustard. I'll continue to say that he's passable as a comedian. I don't think he's funny myself, but that doesn't mean a lot of people don't. But to illustrate my point, here's an example. McDonalds is the largest (read: most popular) burger chain in the world. But it's never been mistaken for the best restaurant in the world. Popularity doesn't always equate to quality. If you can fill a niche and enough people catch on, you can blow up. Especially in the over hyped social media era. People afraid to think critically because they're too afraid to be labled a "hater". So things that aren't really funny or interesting get a life despite their lack of merit. Think Gangnam Style or the New Harlem Shake. Kevin positioned himself well, but I'm not gonna act like this is game changing. Overall, he's a talented dude. But strictly as a comedian, he's okay at best.

I thought it was funnier than the last one. The part about living with a crazy woman probably one of his best angles yet. His first two standups "Grown Little Man" and "Seriously Funny" still top both movies imo...

I think its okay to be critical & have an opinion. Criticism is necessary to grow in whatever profession. I just think ppl tend to cross the line into hate & envy when someone finally becomes extremely successful. Especially when that person or thing you dislike is constantly your topic of discussion. You're supposed to stay away from the things you don't like, so why are so many ppl attracted to something they despise..? The attention they get from going against the grain most likely.

They love you when nobody cares about you, and then they hate you when everybody loves you. It's just a part of the game.

I also believe "The Throne" is something WE created but doesn't have to be, but we do it for some retarded reason.. "One negro @ a time!"... why? "The Throne" is ONE spot we created with unbelievable standards that WE SHOULD KNOW can't be met each & every time.

Why we can only pay attention to one black comedian, one black tv show, one black filmmaker @ once nowadays is beyond me.

but some people still knew who they were and some them making moves......Trinidad James is more of a blew up too quickly example....by your definition, u could say Lil Wayne blew up too quickly
My example may have been a reach, but Weezy is too. He was famous and making platinum hits by time he dropped his first album.

But still, im probably off in my statement about K. Hart. He paid his dues and been doin sh*t for a while, even if nobody cared @ da time.

Glad for his success and all. But that movie was way too short and It wasn't that funny. When they showed the crowed in tears I'm like this sh*t isn't even that funny. And I actually liked his other Stand Ups.

I was looking at all the projects dude has been in back in the day. To see him now on this level is cool

You think Martin has more money than Chris Rock or Eddie Murphy?
