Kevin Hart–the first comedian to ever make more than Jerry Seinfeld–has changed the economy of the funny business by touring like a rockstar. Unlike most comedians, Hart plays stadiums and arenas–over 100 in the past year–and manages to fill them up, grossing an average of over $1 million at each stop.

Comedians never go out of fashion. They make us laugh, they make us smile and they help us put a big laugh when we are down the most. In Hollywood, for the longest of time, Jerry Seinfeld has always topped the list of comedians but things are changing now and others are making their way to the top.

Kevin Hart is someone who has changed things up and replaced Seinfeld as the highest paid comedian. His tours are incredible and are usually done at huge venues where he is able to earn as much as $87.6 million. This figure is staggering and actually double the amount of what Seinfeld was making ($43.5 million). After Kevin’s success and rise to the top, Seinfeld has seemingly become number two, becoming the next most successful comedian on the list between June 2015 -June 2016.

While Kevin Hart has been dominating the men’s comedy industry by a mark, Amy Schumer, on the other hand, has managed to come up to the top as the first woman who has successfully broken the list of comedy’s top earners. Amy has bagged a massive $17 million, which has allowed her to rank on the 4th spot of her rankings.

Schumer was not that known as a personality till she started working as a comedian and has now managed to not just earn good money but also build herself a good and decent reputation of one of the best comedians in Hollywood. Kevin, on the other hand, has always surprised his fans and has now surprised the masses after he took Seinfeld’s position. Kevin is serious about what he does and this is obvious in his Twitter bio where he writes, My name is Kevin Hart and I WORK HARD!!!

Amy Schumer, contrarily, is a woman and has managed to climb her way to the top. 35 years of age, she is already on a world tour that will be sending her to Australia in late 2016. Her tours are never ending and that is why she has not only risen in popularity but managed to succeed as far as money is concerned as well.

Just like Kevin Hart, Amy plays at U.S venues that usually and typically host NBA games. Amy is not just a comedian because she has also written a book. Her book, The Girl With Lower Back Tattoo, helped her earn a massive and whopping $9 million and the book has managed to become the best seller ever since it was released in August.

Just like Amy, Kevin has many projects in the pipeline. His new movie, What Now, will be releasing on October 14th this year.

Comedians such as Kevin and Amy are rising in popularity because of the things that they are bringing to the table. They are not just venturing in comedy but they are also participating in movies and other ventures that are increasing their worth and income streams.

In the list of top comedians, Kevin is the first, Seinfeld the second, Terry Fator the third, Schumer the fourth and Jeff Dunham at last, with $13.5 million net worth
