Chantal Lauby 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 Friday (September 25) that Lauby is the highest-paid comedienne in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between August 2019 and August 2020, a nearly $50 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 French comedienne has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Lauby Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Gap Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlauby - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Chantal) and a fashion line called “Chantal Lauby Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Chantal fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
