George Lopez tops annual list of highest-paid comedians

In 2015 it looked like the comedian’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (November 22) that Lopez is the highest-paid comedian in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between October 2016 and October 2017, a nearly $50 million lead over his 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 comedian-actor-television host has an estimated net worth of $245 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Lopez Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Los Angeles Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlopez - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from George) and a fashion line called “George Lopez Seduction”.

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