Kevin Hart Is Now The Highest Paid Comedian In The World

Kevin Hart is officially the highest-paid comedian in the world.

The Central Intelligence star has ended the 10-year reign of Jerry Seinfeld after he amassed a huge $87.5 million off the back of his tour this year and last.

Amy Schumer came in at number four with her yearly earning of $17 million, making her the first woman to ever make the Forbes highest-paid comedians list. The magazine estimated that Schumer brought in the dough from her TV show Inside Amy Schumer and an $8 million book deal for The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo - a book title I've only just heard about. That's well funny.

Jerry Seinfeld isn't exactly in a bad place being second. He still made $43.5 million over the past year.

Other funnymen who made the list include Terry Fator, Jeff Dunham and even our own scouser John Bishop, who raked in $7 million last year.

Other comedians to make the list include the ventriloquist stand-ups Terry Fator and Jeff Dunham, who make up the top five with Hart, Seinfeld and Schumer.
