The World’s Highest Paid Comedians

By Jay Edwards

How much did your favorite comedians make last year? I think it’s time to start doing stand-up if they’re raking in this much money!

Forbes┬áreleased their list of ‘The World’s Highest Paid Comedians” and last year, Kevin Hart knocked Seinfeld’s 10-year run at the top. However, Jerry’s back baby! Here’s the Top 10:

1. Jerry Seinfeld, $69 million

2. Chris Rock, $57 million

3. Louis C.K., $52 million.

4. Dave Chappelle, $47 million

5. Amy Schumer, $37.5 million

6. Kevin Hart, $32.5 million

7. Jim Gaffigan, $30.5 million

8. Ventriloquist Terry Fator, $18.5 million

9. Jeff Dunham, $15.5 million.

10. Sebastian Maniscalco, $15 million. He’s the only newcomer on this year’s list and he was boosted by playing over 100 gigs over the past year.
