Robert Webb 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 Friday (January 15) that Webb is the highest-paid comedian in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between December 2019 and December 2020, a nearly $30 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 British comedian-actor-author 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 Webb Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Boston Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwebb - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Robert) and a fashion line called “Robert Webb Seduction”.

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