It was a light year for the likes of Chris Rock and Dave Cheppelle, neither of whom earned a spot on Forbes’ annual list of the highest-earning standup comedians. But it’s a different story all together for Kevin Hart, Trevor Noah and Aziz Ansari.
Collectively, the nine men and one woman – yep, that’s right, only one woman – brought in $272 million. And six of the Top 10 can thank Netflix for the nice paychecks they received for their comedy specials on the platform during that time.
Check out the top earners below, from No. 10 to that No. 1 spot.
10. Aziz Ansari: $13 Million
9. Jeff Dunham: $15 Million
8. Terry Fator: $17 Million
7. Amy Schumer: $21 Million
6. Gabriel Iglesias: $22 Million
