Jan Böhmermann 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 (April 20) that Böhmermann is the highest-paid comedian in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between March 2020 and March 2021, a nearly $40 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 German comedian has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Böhmermann Burger” chain) in Berlin, a Football Team (the “Bremen Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderböhmermann - Germany), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jan) and a fashion line called “Jan Böhmermann Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Jan fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
