Do you know who are the highest paid comedians in the world? We will tel you now! Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about this topic. Do you like comedians? Well, I do. But not everyone. I especially like stand-up comedy. In my country there are some really good ones, that I love listening to. But never in my life would I have told who are the best paid ones in the world. So this article was very informative to me. Interested? Come with me!
As I checked the article I found some people were extremely well-paid! Wow! Huge amounts of money! I must check these comedians, because I am interested in this topic, although I will never be a comedian.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked two comedians from their list.
The first comedian is Daniel Tosh – $6.5 million! Tosh is earning a salary of 2.1 M a year for his acclaimed Comedy Central Show, Tosh.0. However, this sum is actually unknown, whereas what is known, is that his full current earnings – which include stand-up show tickets- round the yearly 6.5 million. I cannot vouch for this numbers since they have been taken from unofficial sources. Nevertheless, Daniel’s name was pulled from Forbes’ 2013 list, when he reportedly was earning 11 million, so these numbers sound realistic. If you like acid humor, Tosh will satisfy your needs. The second comedian is John Bishop – $7 million! As reported by Forbes, British comedian John Bishop earned 7 million dollars in 2016. Personally, I don’t know why, I find him really dull, and I adore British humor, so it must be him that’s the problem. Bishop is also “drummer, educator, record label owner, graphic designer, publisher, and festival presenter,” so maybe he didn’t have a lot of time left to learn about proper comedy, but he’s still doing alright. When it comes to British comedians, I will take Dylan Moran over Bishop anytime, but he’s way darker and way drunker, which explains why he’s also way poorer. But, back to Bishop, this is the funniest I could find, and it’s not really that funny, but it’s about sex toys, so… ok.
