Jerry Seinfeld Is Still The Comedy King In 2017
According to a recent report from Forbes, Jerry Seinfeld is the comedy king as he raked in $69 million between June 2016 and June 2017. Netflix is a major reason why Seinfeld made so much money last year, he signed on for two specials at $20 million per, but he also makes a good living with syndication checks from Seinfeld.
Rounding out the Top 5 earning comedians of the last year are: Chris Rock at $57 million, Louis C.K. at $52 million, Dave Chappelle at $47 million, and Amy Schumer at $37.5 million. Netflix has played a major part in all of the comedians earnings as the comedy landscape has changed from days of old.
