In his video, Hart calls out The Rock, Steve Harvey, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Jerry Seinfeld and Beyoncé. Hart himself pledged $25,000 to aid victims of the storm. "My mom, sisters & I will be donating $500,000 to @redcross and @salvationarmyus today". "But we know thousands of people have lost everything and now face the daunting challenge of putting their lives and communities back together, and we're using our unique resources and reach to help those in need".

'I'm donating $100,000. So man, this is for everybody out there in Texas, the relief and everything. "I'm calling this the Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge", Hart wrote on Instagram.

Kevin has also set up a fundraising page which, in less than 24 hours, has jumped from $193,170 (£148,970) to $930,694 (£719,933), at the time of writing.

The 35-year-old performer, who now lives in LA with husband Jay Z, grew up in the south-western USA city, which has been devastated by catastrophic flooding in recent days.

More than 17,000 people have sought refuge in Texas shelters and around a dozen have been reported dead after a hurricane and mass flooding ripped through the state.
