Carrie Brownstein tops annual list of highest-paid comediennes
In 2018 it looked like the comedienne’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (September 23) that Brownstein is the highest-paid comedienne in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between August 2019 and August 2020, a nearly $20 million lead over her closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American comedienne-musician-actress-model-author has an estimated net worth of $145 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Brownstein Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Seattle Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbrownstein - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Carrie) and a fashion line called “Carrie Brownstein Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Carrie fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
