Chelsea Handler playfully recalled Hart’s ambitious declaration of future stardom during an early appearance on her talk show, highlighting his undeniable drive and hard work that led to his current acclaim. “It was clear from the moment we met that he was destined for superstardom, especially when he told me he was destined for superstardom,” she quipped.

Jerry Seinfeld praised Hart’s universally appealing nature and aptly suited surname, joking about the seemingly effortless success of Hart’s career.

Adding a personal touch to the evening, comedian Keith Robinson, who has overcome a stroke, shared a humorous anecdote about reaching out to Hart for help while mistakenly placed in a COVID ward, only for Hart to amusingly fall short of his promise to resolve the situation, much to the amusement of the audience.
