But alas, Hart is a giant among comedians, taking home the prize for Comedic Genius.

Hart brought his kids Heaven and Hendrix onstage to accept the award. He thanked them along with his ex-wife Torrei, his fiancé Eniko Parrish, his manager Dave Becky, Hartbeat Productions and, of course, his fans.

The 35-year old actor-comedian will be the first comedian ever to headline a stadium when he performs at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field on Aug. 30.
