Kevin Hart Responds to Mike Epps’ Criticism and Chats Up Journey to Success

kevin hart-mike epps*With sold out comedy shows, success on the big screen and a loyal fan base, Kevin Hart is in a very good space.

Although Hart’s supporters include legendary comedians like Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Will Ferrell and Steve Martin, don’t put Mike Epps in that lot.

In an interview on Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning” show last month, Epps openly criticized Hart, accusing the “Get Hard” star’s writers of stealing other comedians’ jokes for Hart. In addition, Epps stated many times in the chat that Hart’s talent was eclipsed by his marketing skills.

Hart weighed in on Epps’ criticism during an appearance on “Sway,” saying that his success was the result of his talent. Hart goes on to speak about the ignorance of someone criticizing him for marketing his own abilities while suggesting that Epps’ comments are a result of his own insecurities.

Overall, Hart wished Epps well and even mentioned that he would be willing to work with Epps in the future, most notably in Epps’ upcoming Richard Pryor biopic.

In addition to Epps, Hart touched on the flak he’s received from comedian Aries Spears. According to reports Spears stated that Hart receives help in developing his standup routines writers. In response, Hart said that no one–Pryor, Murphy, Rock–has made it by himself or herself and that every comedian on his level has achieved that success with similar help. Hart then suggests that the criticism may, in part, be from a lesser-known comic who is trying to capitalize on someone with greater name-recognition.

During the course of the 36-minute interview, Hart commented on his ability to sell out arenas multiple times over in one day as well as racism in Hollywood and his 19-year journey towards success.
