Jerry Seinfeld has finally been dropped as the most paid funnyman in the comedy business. Now, that honor belongs to Kevin Hart.
Kevin’s roles in the films Central Intelligence and Secret Life Of Pets as well as his lucrative What Now? comedy tour contributed to his new highest paid comedian title.
Amy Schumer came in fourth place on the highest-paid comedians list by Forbes with earnings of $17 million. Amy Schumer made her list debut, landing in fourth place behind Terry Fator (£13 million).
The Trainwreck star is the only woman to ever make the highest-paid comedians list.
Meanwhile, Jeff Dunham was in fifth with $13.5 million, Dave Chappelle was next with $13 million and Jim Gaffigan earned $12.5 million for seventh place.
