Not every celebrity got their start waiting tables at a restaurant. Here are seven stars who worked some jobs you wouldn’t believe before they were famous.

Kevin Hart made ends meet as a shoe salesmen at the local DSW in Philly before making it big as a comedian. Now his Hollywood Walk of Fame star can be found in right in front of one. Talk about life coming full circle!

Before being signed and singing hooks at Murder Inc, Ashanti looked after the kiddies at a Daycare center. Now, that will make you say, “Oh, Baby.”

Before purring a career in stand-up comedy, Whoopi Goldberg attended cosmetology school and ended up becoming a mortuary beautician. We’re sure she saw a lot of ghosts!

Sam Jackson worked a number of odd jobs, but the one that got him was on the set of The Cosby Show working as stand-in for Bill Cosby.

Before he was a kick-ass action star, Wesley Snipes was a background dancer and was even in Michael Jackson’s “Bad” video.

Before nabbing an Oscar for MoonlightMahershala Ali was pursuing a career as a rapper and performed under the name Prince Ali … which is pretty ironic since we think he looks a lot like Future.

But the biggest surprise of them all would have to be Gabourey Sidibe‘s line of work pre-fame.  The actress worked as a phone sex operator for three years before landing a role in Precious.

Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.

Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.

Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.

#BillCosby has returned to comedy since his trial last summer.

The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
