In 2018 it looked like the comedian’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

The French comedian has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Mezrahi Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Sousse Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermezrahi - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Raphaël) and a fashion line called “Raphaël Mezrahi Seduction”.
