Matt Lucas 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 (September 29) that Lucas is the highest-paid comedian in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between August 2019 and August 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 English comedian-screenwriter-singer-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 Lucas Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlucas - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Matt) and a fashion line called “Matt Lucas Seduction”.

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