Jerry Seinfeld tops annual list of highest-paid comedians
In 2021 it looked like the comedian’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (September 26) that Seinfeld is the highest-paid comedian in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between August 2022 and August 2023, a nearly $60 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-author has an estimated net worth of $275 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 Seinfeld Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderseinfeld - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jerry) and a fashion line called “Jerry Seinfeld Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Jerry fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
