In 2018 it looked like the actor’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (January 15) that Belzer is the highest-paid actor in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between December 2019 and December 2020, a nearly $50 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 actor-comedian-author has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Belzer Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Bridgeport Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbelzer - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Richard) and a fashion line called “Richard Belzer Seduction”.

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