Forbes dropped their list of highest paid comedians today and Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart and Dave Chappelle are all on the list as one of the top earners of the year.
Dave Chappelle came in at number 10, because of his decision to comeback into the industry and start touring has earned him a pretty penny… To the tune of $7.5 Million dollars…..
Aziz Ansari, who is hilarious comes in at number 6, earning his way thanks to his role on Parks and Recreation and also penning a Modern Romance book a sociological investigation into the dating and love lives of millennials—which earned him a hefty advance, as well as name recognition among Tinder and Hinge. Earning him $ 9.5 Million dollars in revenue.
Unfortunately there’s no women on the list this year. But rounding out the top two are Kevin Hart taking the 2nd spot with his What Now Tour, to his movie roles such as Think Like a Man Too, Get Hard and The Wedding Ringer during the 12-month period we evaluated and has more red carpets to look forward to in 2016: He’s starring in and producing Ride Along 2. Earning him $28.5 Million dollars.
Of course taking the number one spot is Jerry Seinfeld, one of my faves since the seinfeld days… The Seinfeld co-creator and standup comic ranks as the top-earning comedian, having raked in $36 million between June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015, with the little show about nothing still responsible for his earning….
