10 Richest Stand Up Comedians


3. Jay Leno, estimated net worth: $250 million

Jay Leno is a workhorse when it comes to touring as a stand up comic. He’s been doing it practically non stop since the 70s, and even when he was hosting the Tonight Show he still managed to do numerous shows a month. While there is speculation that he may return to TV and earn more fat paychecks, one thing is certain: he will continue to sell out Vegas for many more years. Leno famously has not spent a single cent of his talk show host salary and financed his day-to-day expenses and extravagant car collection using only his stand up earnings.
