Joe Cornish 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 Thursday (August 13) that Cornish is the highest-paid comedian in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between July 2019 and July 2020, 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 English comedian-actor-author-director 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 Cornish Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercornish - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Joe) and a fashion line called “Joe Cornish Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Joe fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
