Whether we’re talking about “old” or “new” favorites in the comedy world, one thing is certain – all of the comedians on this list are surely laughing their way to the bank. The likes of Rebel Wilson, Robin Williams, Tracy Morgan, and Ricky Gervais started out as just stand up acts, but now they’re international stars. Oh, just one more pun if I may, looking at how much they’ve earned along the way is no laughing matter! (I could never make it as a comedian, as you can clearly see.)
Amy Schumer – $16 million
36 year old Amy Schumer was already something of comedian before she appeared as a contestant on season five of Last Comic Standing in 2007. Although most of us know us best as the creator, co-producer, co-writer and star of the sketch comedy series Inside Amy Schumer. Regardless of Schumer does, we’re sure that net worth is on the rise.
