Hannibal Buress tops annual list of highest-paid comedians
In 2018 it looked like the comedian’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (October 20) that Buress is the highest-paid comedian in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between September 2019 and September 2020, a nearly $20 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 has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Buress Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Austin Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderburess - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Hannibal) and a fashion line called “Hannibal Buress Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Hannibal fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
