Chelsea Handler 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 Tuesday (October 20) that Handler is the highest-paid comedienne in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between September 2019 and September 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-actress-television host-author-producer 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 Handler Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Livingston Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderhandler - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Chelsea) and a fashion line called “Chelsea Handler Seduction”.

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