Comedian Hart tops pay list

Kevin Hart is literally laughing all the way to the bank. The funny man tops the Forbes magazine list of the highest-paid comedians with earnings of $87.5 million.

Hart, who had roles in the films Central Intelligence and Secret Life of Pets as well as his lucrative What Now? comedy tour, dethrones longtime earnings leader Jerry Seinfeld, who made $43.5 million.

The magazine compiled the estimated income from June 2015 to June 2016.

Amy Schumer made her list debut, landing in fourth place behind Terry Fator with earnings of $17 million. Schumer is the only woman to ever make the highest-paid comedians list.

Adele album sales sparkle

Adele’s comeback album 25 has reached diamond status in less than a year.

25 was released last November and features the hits Hello and Send My Love (To My New Lover). Adele received a plaque for her top-selling achievement at Madison Square Garden in New York on Monday night after performing a whopping six shows at the venue.

The Recording Industry Association of America awards diamond plaques to albums and songs that reach 10 times platinum status. That once was the equivalent of selling 10 million albums or songs but has changed since the RIAA began incorporating streaming from YouTube, Spotify and other digital music services.
