Recommended Posts

The Top 10 Best-Paid Comedians

  1. Jerry Seinfeld - $57.5m (£45.3m)
  2. Kevin Hart - $57m (£44.9m)
  3. Dave Chappelle - $35m (£27.6m)
  4. Chris Rock - $30m (£23.6m)
  5. Ricky Gervais - $25m (£19.7m)
  6. Gabriel Iglesias - $20.5m (£16.1m)
  7. Terry Fator - $18m (£14.2m)
  8. Jim Gaffigan - $17.5m (£13.8m)
  9. Jeff Dunham - $16.5m (£13m)
  10. Sebastian Maniscalco - $15m (£11.8m)

 

The article I seen this in was Kathy Griffin ****ing that there were no women on the list so didn't bother copying the whole thing lol.

Personally I though Bill Burr would have maybe made it on to the list but I imagine a lot of this sort of stuff is to do with royalties.

Anybody on this list surprise you?

What is this based on? Total net salary? Figured Tosh would still be milking that Comedy Central money

The teevee comics live for syndication of reruns, that's what brings it in.  Tbh never watched Seinfeld, thought the show and his standup dull as dirt.

Kevin Hart's standup funny as fook but he'll make his in the movies.  His new one with Bryan Cranston looks good.

This.  YouTube has a "Fred Sanford knockout reel" with him threatening everybody with "five across yo lip."

Saw Redd eons ago at the Riviera in Vegas, the man was pure gold. " You got to wash yo azz! "

Wondering when Best Paid ever equated to most talented/best in any professional field/sports/etc......cant think of a good example.

Richard Pryor beats everyone on this list and I doubt he was ever the best paid.

You realize it's a list of total career earnings, not skill?

These lists are bollocks.

This isn't a brag but I'm very good mates with a so called pop star from the late 80s early 90s. Online her so-called net worth is in the millions, in reality, she told she earnt less than 500k over nine years.

Lee Evans, a UK comedian, sold out arena tours after arena tours.  He did that for many years. I listened to him on an interview once after he retired and he said something along the lines of 'thirty million is enough for any family and their families to live a nice life'

Don't think I have ever actually laughed to one of these "Comedians", Majority of these are just actors who do Comedic roles, I would rather Jimmy Carr, Russell Howard, Billy Connolly, Jon Richardson or Dylan Moran any day.
